Get connection String from Web.config in ASP.Net and C#

“Human Brain is amazing , When I don’t want to save something inside my Brain , It also does not want to save it and literally it does not do that. ” – This line is true for me 🙂

And I always go to my previous written Code + Config file (Or Web) to know how to get Connection String from Web.config . I don’t want to use my Processor of the Brain a minimal percentage for this , And I guess , There are also so many people out there in the world , so this Post is for you guys 🙂

So in my Web.config/App.config file , I will add the below thing .

    <add name="connectionStr" connectionString="Data Source=MASOOM-PC;Initial Catalog=ProjectManagerDB;Integrated Security=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

And Below is the C# code for that .

string connectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["connectionStr"].ConnectionString;

We can also add Node to AppSettings in Web.config and can get it easily .

    <add key="EmailTo" value="emailid@yahoo.com" />

And this is how we can get this in C#

string emailTo = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["EmailTo"];

In future , I will definitely come to my own Blog for this 🙂 Cheers
