This is an example from my clsPreferences used to record settings in the registry

Public Property Let AlwaysConnect(ByVal bValue As Boolean)
    Call SaveSetting(m_sAppName, "Prefs", "AlwaysConnect", bValue)
   
End Property

Public Property Get AlwaysConnect() As Boolean

    AlwaysConnect = GetSetting(m_sAppName, "Prefs", "AlwaysConnect", "True")
   
End Property

Use the VB SaveSetting statement like this:

SaveSetting Statement Example
The following example first uses the SaveSetting statement to make entries in the Windows registry (or .ini file on 16-bit Windows platforms) for the MyApp application, and then uses the DeleteSetting statement to remove them.

' Place some settings in the registry.
SaveSetting appname := "MyApp", section := "Startup", _
            key := "Top", setting := 75
SaveSetting "MyApp","Startup", "Left", 50
' Remove section and all its settings from registry.
DeleteSetting "MyApp", "Startup"
