Having trouble saving setting value. I created a Settings.settings file in my C# project and would like to save a variable to that file. I looked at the example at MSDN:

To Write and Persist User Settings at Run Time
Access the user setting and assign it a new value, as shown in the following example:
Properties.Settings.Default.myColor = Color.AliceBlue;

My code:
Properties.Settings.Default.apiCallsCalled = 1000;

I get an error saying '=' is an invalid token in class, struct, interface or member declaration. Can someone tell me what's wrong?

Thanks,

Set it within your form load or init section. Also, do not forget to call the Save() method, your settings will not automatically persist.
