dynamically getting similar indentifiers while program running

P: n/a
Hallo!
I would like to get some information from the Properties.Settings of an
application which can be done via
.... Properties.Settings.Default.XYZ;

The problem now is that the identifier (XYZ) is not constant. There are
defined some settings looking similar like XYZ34, XYZ56, XYZ87, ... The
indentifier needed is generated dynamicly at runtime.

What must I do to get as result the line
.... Properites.Settings.Default.XYZ34
at one time and
.... Properites.Settings.Default.XYZ87
at an other time in the same codeline???

I hope you can understand my problem.
Thankfully waiting for help!!

Hi,

Index into the collection of settings:

string settingName = "XYZ56";
object value = Properties.Settings.Default[settingName];

Hi Martin,

I agree with Dave that we can use Default[settingname] to achieve this.
However, the only disadvantage is that the returned object is not strong
typed. You have to do that cast yourself. HTH.
