ConfigFile

Inherits: RefCounted < Object

Helper class to handle INI-style files.

Description

This helper class can be used to store Variant values on the filesystem using INI-style formatting. The stored values are identified by a section and a key:

[section]
some_key=42
string_example="Hello World3D!"
a_vector=Vector3(1, 0, 2)

The stored data can be saved to or parsed from a file, though ConfigFile objects can also be used directly without accessing the filesystem.

The following example shows how to create a simple ConfigFile and save it on disc:

# Create new ConfigFile object.
var config = ConfigFile.new()

# Store some values.
config.set_value("Player1", "player_name", "Steve")
config.set_value("Player1", "best_score", 10)
config.set_value("Player2", "player_name", "V3geta")
config.set_value("Player2", "best_score", 9001)

# Save it to a file (overwrite if already exists).
config.save("user://scores.cfg")

This example shows how the above file could be loaded:

var score_data = {}
var config = ConfigFile.new()

# Load data from a file.
var err = config.load("user://scores.cfg")

# If the file didn't load, ignore it.
if err != OK:
    return

# Iterate over all sections.
