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.??

Thanks in advance.

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)
