However I have now incorporate the code into a web application and put the key into my web.config file, will the code now know to look for this key in this place?

If your code is getting the value from your config file using ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["PAYFLOW_HOST"] then it should use the correct config file automatically.  Console apps, windows services and windows form application use app.config, web apps use web.config by default.

Hi There,

You can have appsetting in web.config,



<add key="PAYFLOW_HOST" value="" />




To use the config:

string s = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["PAYFLOW_HOST"];

Hope it helps!

How do I merge web services' app.config with web app's web.config? Help!!
I have a web application project that uses a separate class library containing web service references (service layer). I want to be able to configure the web reference URLs dynamically and I know you can set this up by setting the URL behavior to  'Dynamic', etc, etc. The problem is VS2005 puts the URLs in the project's app.config file. When the class library becomes a DLL component, I have no way of accessing the app.config file.Is there a way to make the web reference project to look for the URLs in the web.config instead of its app.config? Or is there a way to merge this app.config w...

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....

When used, the user must have the write perm...
