FPCVendorParametersSets Collection

The FPCVendorParametersSets collection is used to access the collection of FPCVendorParametersSet objects. Most ISA objects have a VendorParametersSets property that is a reference to this FPCVendorParametersSets collection. A third party can use this collection to associate private sets of configuration information with the object being extended. All objects that have a VendorParametersSets property are extensible.

Each set is identified by a globally unique identifier (GUID) that is provided to the Add method when a new set is created.

By using the FPCVendorParametersSets collection also permits a third party to take advantage of the backup-and-restore capabilities of ISA. Any data stored in this collection is backed up with the rest of the objects whenever a backup is done. The third-party data is also saved to the Active Directory, when available, by the Save method of this collection, or whenever the Save method of the object being extended is called. You don't need to write code to read and write directly from the Registry or the Active Directory when using this collection because reading from and writing to storage are taken care of by the Save and Refresh methods.
