you need to follow these steps

Define your Custom Configuration Class
you need to define class, which inherit from System.Configuration.ConfigurationSection, and add a property per setting you wish to store
using System;
using System.Configuration;

public class BlogSettings : ConfigurationSection
{
  private static BlogSettings settings
    = ConfigurationManager.GetSection("BlogSettings") as BlogSettings;
       
  public static BlogSettings Settings
  {
    get
    {
      return settings;
    }
  }

  [ConfigurationProperty("frontPagePostCount"
    , DefaultValue = 20
    , IsRequired = false)]
  [IntegerValidator(MinValue = 1
    , MaxValue = 100)]
  public int FrontPagePostCount
  {
      get { return (int)this["frontPagePostCount"]; }
        set { this["frontPagePostCount"] = value; }
  }


  [ConfigurationProperty("title"
    , IsRequired=true)]
  [StringValidator(InvalidCharacters = "  ~!@#$%^&*()[]{}/;\"|\\"
    , MinLength=1
    , MaxLength=256)]
  public string Title
  {
    get { return (string)this["title"]; }
    set { this["title"] = value; }
  }
}

2. Add your new configuration section to web.config or app.config

<configuration>
  <configSections>
      <section name="BlogSettings" type="Fully.Qualified.TypeName.BlogSettings,  
      AssemblyName" />
  </configSections>
  <BlogSettings
    frontPagePostCount="10"
    title="Youve Been Haacked" />
</configuration>

3. use your new custom configuration section
string title = BlogSettings.Settings.Title;
msessagebox.show(title); //it works!!!
