When working in your project properties you will sometimes find yourself using a variety of Application Settings (I'm assuming you know how to create/use application settings, if not you can go to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/a65txexh.aspx):
But what if you want to organize these settings? For example, if you want the WindowColor to be with the other color settings what would you do? Simple!
WARNING: This requires you to manually edit your settings file which could get you into trouble if you mess it up. Do this at your own risk. Also, make a copy of your settings file BEFORE editing it so you can recover if there is a problem.
First save your changes and close the properties tab. Now open up the project location:
Locate go into your Properties folder:
Locate your Settings file:
Open it up with a text editor (I'll use Notepad here):
Notice that each setting is encapsulated in the <Setting> elements? We just need to rearrange the elements in the order we want them. So select the "WindowColor" <Setting> element:
Then just CUT and PASTE it where you want the setting to show up. For this example, I want it to show up after "ForegroundColor":
Save your changes and close the file then go back into your Project properties to see the settings arranged in the new order:
That's it! Now you can have well organized application settings.
