Adding new my.settings items from within the source

I'm using the my.settings feature in vb.net 2005 to save application settings. However, I need to create new setting items from within the program while it's running as the user can add new data files which are listed within a checked list box and I want the app to remember which boxes were checked at exit when the app next runs.

Is there a way of creating a my.settings array to cycle through the items listed in the checked list box, or adding a new my.settings item when the user adds a new file to the checked list box? Or am I going to have to revert to saving the settings within my own XML file?

Thanks!

You could setup a delimited string with them in and save that to the application settings.

So ListboxSettings = "setting1=value1|setting2=value2 .... etc ..."

Then split them before use.
