Hello

I have the fallown code to read some values from app.config file. When I execute it
I got nothing. What I have wrong. Please, let me now.

I use vb.net 2010.

Thanks you.


Imports System.Configuration

Public Class Form2

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

        Dim name As String = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("OperatorName")
        Console.WriteLine("Welcome " + name)

        Dim level As String = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("LoggerLevel")
        Console.WriteLine("Logger level: " + level)

    End Sub

End Class

The APP.config file has:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration>
  <appSettings>
    <add key="OperatorName" value="Rita"></add>
    <add key="LoggerLevel" value="5"></add>
  </appSettings>
</configuration>

Try this syntax
Assign settings in project...
I assigned a setting named 'S4BackColor'

reference setting using
Me.Groupbox.backcolor = Global.<project name>.My.MySettings.Default.S4BackColor

If my project S4Backcolor variable was encoded as red then my groupbox would be red.

Are you sure that the config you are reading contains the value that you are expecting?

To verify, go to the bin > debug. Inside the debug folder you will see the config file.

Usually, the config file has a naming convention like <project name>.config,

Please let us know the result.
