object obj = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["ServerName"];
 if (obj == null) return;
string serverName = obj.ToString();

using LINQ to XML, here is how i would do this:-

var xmlData =
                "<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8' ?><configuration><add key='ServerName' value='SERVER=USER-PC\\SQLX2008'/></configuration>";

            var element = XElement.Parse(xmlData).Descendants("add").Attributes("value").First().Value;

Open in new window

use this then:-
var element = XElement.Load("<Path_To_Your_XMLFile>");
var serverValue=element.Descendents("add").Attributes("value").First().Value;

Open in new window


Namespace to use : System.Xml.Linq;

XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
doc.Load(filePath);
XmlNodeList nodes = doc.GetElementsByTagName("Add");
foreach (XmlNode n1 in nodes[0])
{
XmlNode xKey = n1.Attributes["key"];
string key = (xKey == null) ? string.Empty : xKey.Value.Trim();
XmlNode xValue = n1.Attributes["value"];
string value = (xValue == null) ? string.Empty : xValue.Value.Trim();

}

I wrote that on the fly, I see that the string "Add" should not be capitalized and the foreach should not have  index zero on the nodes object
