Connection string for .NET Windows forms
Posted on 2006-11-27
I'm working on an ASP.NET app but some parts of this application may be used for Windows forms later on too (objects, etc.). How can I specify the connection string to the SQL Server database in a single place so that if the SQL server database is moved to a different location, I only have to change the connection string in one place? That is, I wouldn't have to update the connection string for every single computer that uses the Windows forms app. I haven't worked with Windows forms before, so I'm not sure if this is even possible, but any help will be appreciated. Please let me know if you need more information or if this doesn't make sense at all.
