Configuration :: Select Web.Config File Programmatically?

May 2, 2010

I have 1 web application, 2 databases (same design, with different data), and 2 web.config files (web1.config. web2.config) ;

What I do need is a way to change the web.config file name programaticcaly on code behind.

So, this way I can select on runtime accoerding to the current theme the web.config currently being used.

Ofcourse that if I could do inheritnce of the web.config files it would be te best approaach, but only one web.config file is allowed per directory.

deploy this configuration to achieve a multiple websites to one web project.

Configuration :: How To Read Configuration Settings Of Web.config Using Javascript

Apr 30, 2010

Web.config is the main settings and configuration file for an ASP.NET web application. The file is an XML document that defines configuration information regarding the web application. The web.config file contains information that control module loading, security configuration, session state configuration, and application language and compilation settings. Web.config files can also contain application specific items such as database connection strings

Example 1:

<!-- This is an example Web.config file -->


In this article, we will see how to read the configuration settings in the web.config using 'JavaScript'.

Step 1: Create a new ASP.NET website. Add a button control to the Default.aspx.

Step 2: Right click the project > Add New Item > Web Configuration File

Add the following sample entry to the appSettings section in the web.config between the <configuration> tag as shown in the example 1:

<add key="var1" value="SomeValue"/>

Step 3: To read these entries using JavaScript, add the following script in the <head> tag of your Default.aspx page as shown below:

<head runat="server">
<script type="text/javascript">
function ReadConfigSettings()
var v1 = '<%=ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["var1"].ToString() %>'
Step 4: Call this function on a button click and display the values of the configuration settings

<input type="button" value="Get" onclick="ReadConfigSettings();" />
That's it. Run the application and click the button. The value of the key in the appSettings will be displayed in the alert window. I hope you liked this short article.

Configuration :: How To Merge A Distribution Web.config File And An Existing Web.config File

Mar 30, 2010

I'm preparing to deploy a ASP.NET web application. The target server has already a previous version of my web application with parameters specified on the web.config file.

In the new version of this web application, the web.config file contains new sections I would like they appear into the target web.config file on the server.

However I can't find the way to merge the new web.config sections into the existing web.config file ?

Does I have to do it programmatically, or is there a tool to merge the both files during installation ? (I'm using Web Setup Project).

Configuration :: Read An Appconfig Property From Web.config Via Tag?

Sep 27, 2010

<asp:sqldatasource id="DS" runat="server" connectionstring="<%$ ConnectionStrings:MY_CONNECTION %>"
Selectcommand ="Select * from [].dd.dbo.table">
The connection string is taken from web.config.

I want to take a value from the web.config -> app settings via asp tag.

The reason is that inside the selectcommand inside the sqldatasource I use four-part-name and the IP is hard coded in some aspx files.

I want it to be taken from appsettings property instead.

How To Read Web.config File From Javascript

Feb 8, 2011

When the user clicks on it, another .aspx page should pop up. I used the code below and it works fine. But when we deploy this .aspx page, the IP address of the target IIS server will be different. So I am thinking of saving the IP address of target IIS server in web.config file and load it into the method of Javascript code (below).Qusetion 1: Is that right way to do? If so, how I can read web.config file from Javascript?

<script type="text/javascript">
function open_win() {"http://10.999.1.86/WebUI/HistoricalRuns.aspx", "_blank", "toolbar=no, location=yes, directories=no, status=no, menubar=yes, scrollbars=yes, resizable=yes, copyhistory=no, width=1000, height=500");

Way To Use OpenExeConfiguration To Read A Different Config File

Feb 17, 2011

I'm trying to use OpenExeConfiguration to read a different config file, but I can't find any good examples.I have a windows Service and some of the config data already exists in another windows service config file on the same server, and it makes more sense to use what is already there, rather than have to maintain the same data in 2 places.

Can A Web.config Read From An External Xml File

Mar 9, 2010

I have to duplicate some settings (like connection string) between a web.config file that a WCF host uses and a web.config file that a web client uses.

In the interest of not duplicating, can I have both the web.configs read from a separate xml file? The two web.configs can be entirely in different solutions/projects so I guess this is not possible, but wanted to get other's opinion.

PS: I do understand I can use a database to store all the config settings.

VS 2008 - Read Value From Config File

Sep 13, 2011

I have code that reads a value from a config file (not web.config) given a key. It looks like this:

Public Shared Function GetCustomConfig(ByVal ValuetoGet As String, ByVal ConfigFileValue As String) As String
Dim Returnvalue As String = String.Empty
For Each KeyValue As String In AppSettings.Keys
If KeyValue = ValuetoGet Then
Returnvalue = AppSettings.Item(KeyValue).ToString
End If

Return Returnvalue
End Function

So if my config file which is named my.config has this entry: <add key="TempArea" value="c:Temp"/>I would call GetCustomerConfig("TempArea", "my.config") and the function would return "c:Temp". Most of the time this is what happens. But sometimes I get an exception: Collection was modified after the enumerator was instantiated.

Is there a better way to get the value given the key? This is code written long ago by my predecessor, and I am not sure I want to use it anymore. If I do use it, I will have to do something so that it is more reliable.
