Is this correct?

if (System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["TEXTBOOK_ALLOW_BUY"] != null)
        {
            if (cballowbuytextbooks.Checked)
            {
                System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings.Set("TEXTBOOK_ALLOW_BUY","YES");
            }
            else
            {
                System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings.Set("TEXTBOOK_ALLOW_BUY", "NO");
            }
        }

Open in new window




What if the name value pair does not exist?  Will the call to AppSettings.Set(  )   create the entry if it does not exist?
