Get/Set settings Netloaded Dll

I've created a DLL that can store and use some usersettings.


Now I want to call the settings from another dll.

I've added a property class to get and set the settings in the source dll.

But when I try to catch or set them trough module B it doesn't have an effect on the values in module A


Lets say I've got 1 user setting as Boolean called AL_HATCH in Module A

Public Class Settings
    Public Shared Property Hatch As Boolean
            Return My.Settings.AL_HATCH
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As Boolean)
            My.Settings.AL_HATCH = value
        End Set
    End Property
End Class

 In module B I referenced the DLL with the module above.


Lets say its at the moment True


When I change the value with module A and call it back with module B it is still True when it needs to be False.??

I'll try to explain... (I'm on vacation right now, I'll be back at the office after the hollidays).


I've got a module that has some user settings (My.settings.BIBpath, My.settings.AWNpfx,...)

At the moment these are configured trough windows included in the dll.


At the moment I'm trying to make a user control that merges in the Autocad Options dialogue.

So far no problem to create that one.


But here I want to collect my settings from Multiple dll files so the users can access all their options trough the options dialogue from the CAD application.


So I need to get/set the settings from the user control in the required dll. (I'll post a project when I'm back in the office in January)
