WPF properties.settings and global variables

WPF properties.settings and global variables

WPF properties.settings and global variables

Hi all - after banging my head on a winforms project I thought I'd try out WPF.
First problem I ran into is persistant data. It seems I can use Properties.Settings.Default.VarName to get/set any settings I've put in the settings file and this works fine in my main window. But I ahve custom initialisation stuff going on in App.xaml.cs and in there Properties.Settings doesn't exist.
I'm also having a problem finding the simplest way to have global variables as it were - so stuff I work out or get/set from properties.settings can be a avariable available to main window and other forms too. Obviously they could all access the settings (theoretically) but that's not a global variable reference etc.

Any basic help anyone? :( I've spent hours looking and testing /sleep
