web.config and app.config in VS2005

Hi there

I'm new to web programming. I'm using asp.net 2.0(vb.net) in Visual Studio 2005.

When writing windows applications I use app.config to store string constants. I simply Right click on my project name in Solution Explorer and choose properties. Then I click Settings and type in the name of the constant, type = string, scope = application, the value and I could retrieve it in any form or class of the project using My.Settings.sConstant.

How can I do that in web applications using web.config?

Add the following, of course with your own constants:

undefinedadd key="SourceDir" value="\\whatever"undefined
undefinedadd key="SirSourceDir" value="\\whatever2undefined

 Then to get the values from the asp page use the following assuming you have a label1 in your file:

Label1.Text = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings.Item(



Hope this helps...

Sorry, had the wrong formatting set, should be this


<add key="SourceDir" value="\\whatever"/>
<add key="SirSourceDir" value="\\whatever2"/>

web.config overrides settings in app.config? VS2005
Hi,I have a scenario which I thought would be more common but can't find much information online about it so any pointers will be appreciated. I have a class library with various classes and a DAL in which I am using the dataset designer to expose data access. It in turn the dataset designer is creating it's connection strings happily and adding them to the app.config file. However, I am using a web deployment project to deploy the web project and change the connection strings in the web.config file. I was lead to believe that so long as i named the connection string in the web....

Hi,Please guide me out of this issue:Here, I have got a web application project using VS 2005, wherein I want to point all my .aspx requests to a particular httphandler, all the plumbing in implementing a class extended from IHTTPHandler being in the same assembly, I have got stuck in the web.config wherein I have to map the request type with the handler something like this:<add verb="*" path="*.aspx" type="abc.xyx.MyHttpHandler,WebDashboard"/>The problem here is that at runtime the assembly is not being located, and hence a vanilla screen each time I run the app, with the foll...

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...

Separate DAL project with DataSet: the connstring is in app.config, not web.config
I have a separate project (DAL) with a Typed DataSet, I just started laying out my Solution. I need to reuse the code in different projects. However, as soon as I started designing the DataSet, Visual Studio generated a file called app.config and a file called settings.settings under properties.I am just wondering how this will work out in a web application, because that should work with a file called web.config, right? Is this going to work, and will I need to jump through hoops to get it to work?Thanks!When you ask a question, remember to click "mark as answered" when you get a reply which...

VS2005 Web Setup Project

Is it possible to migrate VS2005 Web Application Project to VS2005 Web Site.
Good afternoon.On my first project using VS2005, it was a brand new project so we didn't have to face the migration issue.  As we were developing right after VS2005 was released, we created the code using File | New | Web Site.I have now moved onto my second project and this one is a migration from a previously existing .NET 1.1 codebase to .NET 2.0.   We are currently investigating the best approach for migrating this code from VS2003 to VS2005.  We are thinking that at least initially, we might convert the code into a VS2005 Web Application Project using the steps located at...

Web Deployment Project - Config Properties
I'm using a Web Deployment Project to compile my web site. In the Property Pages - Configuration Properties - Deployment section, there is an option to 'Enable Web.config file section replacement'. I have this working to replace certain sections of my web.config for each build config (release/staging/dev). I think this makes sense so other developers do not have to remember to change the web.config file. HOWEVER, this only seems to work when replacing parts of web.config; such as appSettings, connectionString, etc. This would require me to have separate config files for each section and bui...
