.NET Custom Configuration Section

I created a custom configuration section using the System.Configuration.ConfigurationSection class.

I'm have created a class that extends the ConfigurationElementCollectionClass -  to represent a configuration element containing a collection of child elements.

The class works fine when retrieving values from the configuration file, but when I try to remote an object of this type, I get the following exception:

"You must implement a default accessor on
System.Configuration.ConfigurationLockCollection because it inherits
from ICollection."

In my class that extends ConfigurationElementCollection, I have the following accessor

        public ManufacturerConfigurationElement this[int index]
        {
            get
            {
                return (ManufacturerConfigurationElement)BaseGet(index);
            }
            set
            {
                if (BaseGet(index) != null)
                {
                    BaseRemoveAt(index);
                }

                BaseAdd(index, value);
            }
        }

Any ideas why I'm still receiving this exception?

Thanks,

You need to put the "Default" keyword in your accessor.

Oh I didn't notice it is C#, you have already the indexer equivalent for "Default" VB.NET keyword.  Sorry.

Alfred - thanks for the reply, but that link's suggestion did not help.

As a workaround, I ended up following this article's idea:
