Hi.

I have a section in web.config like this:
 <appSettings>
    <add key="mailServer" value="localhost" />
    <add key="mailFromAddress" value="testmail@test.server" />
  </appSettings>

How do i read the values?
All the examples i can find is for looping through the values, and thats not what i want.. i need to read one value.

just try


String mailServerValue=ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("mailServer")

similarly

String mailFromAddress=ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("mailFromAddress")

Nope.. that makes .NET respond with:

"CS0118: 'System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings' is a 'property' but is used like a 'method'"
