web.config asp.net

Assume I have the following setting in asp.net/c# application - web.

in App_Code/GetInformation.cs

I need to use the connectionstring. In GetInformation.cs, we may frequently change from test to live. How can we code in asp.net/c# that we can easily just switch one time for all codes in getinformation.cs?

 <connectionStrings>
    <add name="SqlDbConnectionTest" connectionString="Data Source=173.248.136.2122,1533;Initial Catalog=xxx;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=sa;Password=xxx" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
  </connectionStrings>

    <add name="SqlDbConnectionLive" connectionString="Data Source=173.248.136.2122,1533;Initial Catalog=xxx;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=sa;Password=xxx" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
  </connectionStrings>

If you are not using both at the same time, change the name of both to "SqlDBConnection" omitting the "Test" and "Live".  You would then have one of them commented out depending on which one you wanted active.  That way you are only ever editing web.config.
