I have a file dialog method in my code to which I pass a value using a parameter called ImportPath. I want to assign this value in the app.config file which you can see below.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<setting name="ImportPath" serializeAs="String">
Here is the code:
openFileDialog1.Title = "Select Arrests csv file to scrub";
openFileDialog1.InitialDirectory = ImportPath;
openFileDialog1.Filter = "Excel files (*.xls)|*.xls|Excel files (*.xlsx)|*.xlsx|All files (*.*)|*.*";
openFileDialog1.FileName = "";
openFileDialog1.FilterIndex = 1;
openFileDialog1.RestoreDirectory = true;
The problem is the value for ImportPath is always blank. What is the proper technique to retrieve the value for ImportPath?
