Read APP.Configu


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 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" ?>
    <add key="OperatorName" value="Rita"></add>
    <add key="LoggerLevel" value="5"></add>

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.
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.
