Error in List saved in user settings: strings doesn't save RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an List saved in my user settings, it should save several strings, but when I check its value (by Settings.Default.FileList.Count) it displays that the value is 0, when I save a string, it displays the number of strings saved, but when I Change of form or I restart the app, it's again 0.

  • Two things to check:

    - Verify that you didn't forget to call Settings.Default.Save()

    - Verify that the scope for the setting is "User". If it is "Application" it doesn't save.

  • Hi SebGM2018,

    I create a FileList setting in settings of project properties. Here is the code which could save the value when you restart the application, I could get the value as what you want.

    I make two gif to show the results.

    First, I add the value of setting FileList3 without using Save() method. When you restart the application, the count does not save the value,

    And then when I use the Save() method, I could get the value after restart the application.

    Here is the code I used to test.

     Settings.Default.FileList3 = "hello";
                var count = Settings.Default.FileList3.Count();

    Best Regards,
