Use web.config with web forms?

 Hi All,

 I'm doing some unit testing of a web application, and would like to use settings from a web.config file.  Is this possible?

 Thanks much,

- Mark

I'd suggest keeping your Unit Tests in a seperate project and using it's own .config file. It will be a little repetition but it will help to keep things seperated for perf and reusability without bloating your production app.

I agree with Curt. It is better to seperate options for testing and release version. This will decrease the job to be done once the unit testing process is finished.

 Thanks!  Another questions - there is a library that's part of the web application.  This library uses Session variables for various data functions.  Is there any way to simulate this in a testing environment with web forms?

 I apologize if this should be a new thread..

You'll have to manually instantiate a Session object and HTTPContext most likely.

 Why we use Web.Config File for connection string wether we can use class Library for get connection for whole web Application  please help me? Friend, Web.config has its own advantages. 1) Web.Config is used to store the important information like connections strings that it can be modified even after the code has been    deployed to the server without compiling the entire application again. 2) Since it is a XML file, there is no need of building the project of you are going to change the connection strings.   If you go for the class files,...

can someone one give me difference between web form and mobile web form and which or where or when i'm using the forms?
thanks Marc Hi Marc, Based on my understanding, you want to know the differences between the ASP.NET web application and ASP.NET mobile web application. If I have misunderstood you, please feel free to let me know. The ASP.NET forms are used to develop the ASP.NET pages for desktop browsers and The ASP.NET mobile forms are used to develop the ASP.NET pages for mobile device browsers. When we create the ASP.NET mobile web forms pages, we can use nearly all the features of ASP.NET. But there are a couple of compatibility issues: Error Handling and Reporting. Tracing. Using Redi...

running 2 web.configs in the same website 1 in /web.config and one in /swf/web.config
Im having issues doing this. and when i remove the authentication from the swf/web.config it still doesnt seem to be applying to the child website at all. Whats the proper way to set a child website? Thanks!!  The lower most web.config overrides all previous settings. So if you remove the section from the /swf/web.config whatever settings you have in the web.config in the next higher level will have an effect on the content of the child folder.So instead of removing a section, try giving appropriate settings in the /swf/web.config....

Web Forms Security via web.config?
In classic ASP, if you wanted to restrict someone from a certain area on the website (say, a "client area"), you would activate a session flag once their login creditials had been verified, and challenge each visiter at each protected page for that session flag. I had heard that with ASP.NET, this has been greatly simplified through the web.config file, but wasn't offered too much support on the issue.  Does anyone know how it can be implemented simply and quickly via the web.config file?  Are there any simple descriptions online somewhere?  Ideally, I'd like to authorize the...
