Hi Rahamathulla_J,
something like:

DateTime d = DateTime.Parse(System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["configKey"]);
if (d == DateTime.Now)
    ......................

if the date format is not in the format of your default culture you can pass a second parameter to the Parse method to indicate the culture.


Cheers!
Dani
