Hello there,
I am working on our website, and I am integrating a newCart app into the main app.
main/
main/newCart
the newCart is located in a virtual directory and it is a shopping system we purchased.
I have create the reference that I need to pass the user information into the newCart. But I come to a problem.
IN my web.config I think I need to create a custom tag in the configSections like
 <configSections>
   <section name = "newCart" type="xxx" />
</configSections>
then
<newCart>
  <add key="connString" value=" data source=..... " />
</newCart>
From what I searched, the type xxx should be a class implement the ConfigurationSection.
I searched the newCart codes and did not have anything implement this ConfigurationSection, how can I deal with this? My goal is to let the referenced class connect with the correction string to DB.
Appreciate any help.

Find the connection string name used on the new cart app. And on the connection settings section add another connecting string with  the name of the connection string used on the cart app.


Thanks

Hello Bedanand,

no, still with the same error message. Seems I create the connecting string but did not tell the name space to use it. Below is the message. Thanks
