Hi John,

You can access those properties using:



{{Root Namespace}}.Properties.Settings.Default.{{PropertyName}}

Under the project is a properties object.  Double click that and an entire
multi-tabbed dialog opens.

Click the settings tab.  There you will see a form where you can enter name,
type, scope, value.

As far as I can tell this is a place where I (the developer) can create
settings that my program 
will use and manipulate, settings (for example) to tell my program the name
of the SQL Server 
instance to use in a connection string, the name of my control database
where I store my stored 
procedures and UDFs.  Stuff like that.  Stuff that I am currently hard
coding, but which really 
should be in a settings tab so that I don't have to remember where that
constant is in code, I can 
just go to the settings tab to change.

My expectation is that there is an object somewhere in the .net namespace
that allows you to do 
something like "Something.Somethingelse.Settings["MyServerName"]...." to
access these things.

I expect to be able to create new ones, edit existing ones, delete them etc
from a .Net object.  I 
am looking for that .Net syntax that allows me to do this from code.
