Notes

  • The "*API" classes are abstract classes which define the basic Settings API without actually doing anything.
  • The "*XML" classes implement the API classes using MSXML2 to load and save the data.

Code

clsSettingAPI

This is an abstract class for translating between internal data and the string to actually save. It is implemented by #clsSettingText and #xtForm.
