Hi,

I have some keys in my appSettings. No problem here. Now I want to add some more keys in the appSettings but they should belong to a group so that I can loop through the appsettings but select only that keys that belong to my group.
Example below.

How can I accomplish this and how to retrieve the values?

Thx!

<appSettings>
    <!-- The host for sending emails -->
    <add key="smtpServer" value="mozart"/>
    <add key="smtpUser" value="" />
    <add key="smtpPassword" value="" />

		<Mnemonics>
			<add key="Mnemonics1" value="some value"/>
			<add key="Mnemonics2" value="some value"/>
			<add key="Mnemonics3" value="some value"/>
			<add key="Mnemonics4" value="some value"/>
		</Mnemonics>
  </appSettings>

Normally you don't do it that way.
You create a custom configurationsection - explaining here is a bit long so I did a quick google:

There are some tricks you can do with the appSettings but none very advisable.
