    In This Topic

    The Loupe Agent supports configuration via the Application Configuration file (e.g. app.config or web.config) and at runtime through an Initializing event that is raised when the agent is first invoked.  Once the agent has initialized its configuration can't be changed.

     Configuring through the Application Configuration file

    The agent will always look for an application configuration file (e.g. app.config or web.config) to read its configuration data from whenever it attempts to initialize.  This configuration information is used to override the default values that the agent normally operates with.

    For complete details on how to configure the agent using the .NET configuration files, see Developer's Guide - Agent Configuration through Configuration Files.

     Configuring through an external file

    Configuration can be stored in a separate Xml file from the application configuration and loaded at runtime.  This approach can simplify having shared external Loupe configuration when compared to merging the configuration with the application configuration file.


     Configuring through code

    You can perform all agent configuration tasks in code with no configuration file being required.  This is particularly useful if you want to ship your application as a single file or ensure that end users can't modify the agent configuration.

    To see how to configure the agent through code without requiring a configuration file, see Developer's Guide - Agent Configuration through Code.

     Common Scenarios
    Loupe has an extensive set of configuration options.  For a quick overview of some common configurations and purposes, see Developer's Guide - Agent Configuration Common Scenarios.
