Hi,

I hope that someone is able to help. Please find uploaded word document for reference.
I have been reading a tutorial online about accessing application settings.
However when i try to access my variable "debugmodeon":

My.Settings.debugmodeon

I receive the following error - Error      1      
'debugmodeon' is not a member of 'LabourEntryScreen.My.MySettings'.      

I am sure its something simple that i have missed out.

Regards,

Ross

Assuming name of your settings file is Settings.settings, use this:-

My.Settings.Default.debugmodeon

Looks like your trying to say debugmodeon() which is incorrect it should be

Dim s as String = My.Settings.debugmodeon

Where is this failing? Is it in the debuger or when you deploy? Also, if after you deploy, how are you deploying the application?

i am sorry, you need to use this instead, Just Remove My and simply do this to access your variable:-

Settings.Default.debugmodeon

If you locate the Settings.Designer.vb file under the "My Project" folder, you should be able to find the generated property.  If I add one it looks like this:

        <Global.System.Configuration.ApplicationScopedSettingAttribute(), _
         Global.System.Diagnostics.DebuggerNonUserCodeAttribute(), _
         Global.System.Configuration.DefaultSettingValueAttribute("True")> _
        Public ReadOnly Property IsDebugModeOn() As Boolean
            Get
                Return CType(Me("IsDebugModeOn"), Boolean)
            End Get
        End Property

Open in new window


If it is showing up, but still in error..  I don't know maybe there is some kind of conflict in your project with the My namespace..  

You should still be able to access it by fully qualifying the path to the MySettings default object like this:

        Global.LabourEntryScreen.My.MySettings.Default.IsDebugModeOn
