VS 2012 Web.config Transformation and Solution Configuration Dropdown?

I have web.config Transformations working on Publish. I notice it doesn't seem to matter if I use the Solution Configuration drop-down and choose Debug or Release, on Publish the contents of web.release.config are always used...

Q. Where does the Solution Configuration (Debug/Release) dropdown come into play?

Do you have transforms in your solution? You should have one for each solution configuration you have in the drop-down box:


Whenever you change the drop-down, then the corresponding transform should be applied.

In your publish profile you also will select which solution configuration is applied:

Okay, I get it now. I was confusing the 'Solution Configuration (Debug/Release) with the Publishing location specific web.config settings.

This way one could Publish
1. Solution Configuration (Debug) using web.QA.config and specific Publish location
2. Solution Configuration(Release) using web.QA.config and specific Publish location
3. etc...
