Syntax

Returns

 

String, previous search base key

 

Parameters

 

Name

Type

Optional

Meaning

NewSearchKey

String

No

New base search key

 

 

Remarks

 

To save some typing and allow dynamic loading of keys sets, it is possible to set a base search string that will be added to all successive .GetKey(...) search.

So, for example, adding "Debug" as SearchKey, instead of searching for MyAppConfig.GetKey("Debug\AppData\Author_Name") you cans search for

MyAppConfig.GetKey("AppData\Author_Name") only because thinBasic will add "Debug" in front of "AppData\Author_Name"
