I have the following in my app.config:

<add key="Message" value="Calling {client} to {room}" />

Both Client & Room are written in as variabless fom my code

I can read the string, but how would I extract the values for client & room.

I can use 2 additional strings as well as the full version, is there an easy way to get the values back.
