I am trying to transform an aspx web page(VB.NET) so that it has a code behind. Why am I getting this error? Why is it asking me to declare ConfigurationSettings when it has already been declared?

I am trying to transform an aspx web page(VB.NET) so that it has a code behind. I have done all the changes according to a book I am following but I cannot seem to get the following code to work.

Public Class CodeBehindDemo
Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

Public Shared ConnectString As String = _
    ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("MyDataSource")

This code seems to work ok in VS.NET but when I try to run the same in DreamweaverMX it flags up the error; BC30451: Name 'ConfigurationSettings' is not declared.

for each sub-procedure I am connecting to the datasource using;  Dim cnn As String = (CodeBehindDemo.ConnectString)...which has been changed from (ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("MyDataSource")) when it was originally mixed with the HTML.

Why am I getting this error? Why is it asking me to declare ConfigurationSettings when it has already been declared?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey buddy,
I think you should check in your application, there is an XML file : web.config, it's auto create if you use VS.NET to create your application.
Ad the <appSettings> tag is the place that store any key that you declare, and all the key can be access everywhere in your application with :ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("your key here").
Just a thinking.
