I have been trying to get my connectionstring from the web.config file and both methods I have tried give errors.
I have imported the System.Configuration but I keep getting ConfigurationManager not declared.
I also tried using ConfigurationSettings.appsettings and get this is obsolete.
What am I doing wrong???
Thanks

        Inherits DBManagerBase
        Public Sub OpenConnection()
 
            ConnectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("ConnectionString").ConnectionString
          
          '  ConnectionString = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("ConnectionString").ToString
            MyBase.Open(ConnectionString)
        End Sub

You have to add "System.Configuration" as a reference and it will work.
