Can  someone tell me why I keep getting nulls when I reference the app.config file in Visual Studio 2012?

.cs file:
string ServiceUrl = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["webUrl"];
 string userName = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["UserName"];

Open in new window

App Config file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <add key="webUrl" value="" /> 
    <add key="UserName" value="test"/>
    <add key="Password" value="test123"/> -->
    <add key="UserNameDevice" value="160hmrajfdsg" />
    <add key="PasswordDevice" value="TJ*aahg1z9;W" />
    <add key="Domain" value="Test" />
    <add key="ClientSettingsProvider.ServiceUri" value="" />
    <supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.6" />
    <membership defaultProvider="ClientAuthenticationMembershipProvider">
        <add name="ClientAuthenticationMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.ClientServices.Providers.ClientFormsAuthenticationMembershipProvider, System.Web.Extensions, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" serviceUri="" />
    <roleManager defaultProvider="ClientRoleProvider" enabled="true">
        <add name="ClientRoleProvider" type="System.Web.ClientServices.Providers.ClientRoleProvider, System.Web.Extensions, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" serviceUri="" cacheTimeout="86400" />
