Outlook VSTO Plug In Needs to Save Some DATA on Local Client RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am working on a VSTO outlook plug in where I have custom task pane having few text/combo boxes and I need to save this data somewhere on the local client. This data is part of credentials which is used to pull information from third party webservice.

    Please guide me how/where can I save this data?

    According to your description, you could use a Settings file. The advantage of this file, besides having a centralized and strongly-typed repository, is that you can set the settings to be either application-scoped or user-scoped. Application settings will be available to all users of the computer. User settings will be individualized for each user.
