VB.NET get default value from My.Settings

VB2010. I understand how to save settings and load them from the My.Settings namespace. What I am trying to figure out is how to get the default value of a settings and present it to the user. I don't want to save the setting I just want to show what the current value is and what the default value is. I tried this but I don't think it does what I think it's supposed to do:

Msgbox "Current setting: " & My.Settings.CustLineWidth & vbcrlf & _
"Default setting: " & My.MySettings.Default.CustLineWidth


The default as I have setup in the IDE is 10 but the user changed it to 25. If I run the above code I get

Current setting: 25
Default setting: 25


What I would like is

Current setting: 25
Default setting: 10

Answer

This worked for me:

My.Settings.PropertyValues("CustLineWidth").Property.DefaultValue
