ADO.NET :: How To Use Connectionstring From Web.config

Jan 2, 2011

I have a connectionstring in my web.config <add name="HeimkinoVerbindungszeichenfolge1" connectionString="Data Source=SERVER;Initial Catalog=Heimkino;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=sa;Password=*******;"providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

This itself is working when using eg the SQLDataSource for a Gridview or similar.

Now I need to access this DB with different scripts and work with that database.

Eg I need to run this comand in a page_load against the DB


to remove old events from the database

For other pages I need something like


for some userauthentication things this should just create a recordset I can work with then.

Is there a way to realize this using the connectionstring in the web.config (and if so, How???)

If this will not work, how can I run such queries?

C# - Use Connectionstring From Web.config In Source Code File?

Mar 15, 2011

I know this might be a very basic question, but maybe thats why im having problems finding the answer. Right now I'm creating database connections in my source files by doing something like this:

SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection("Data Source=...Password=...);
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(String.Format("SELECT * FROM Table;"), con);
SqlDataReader reader = cmd.ExecuteReader();

But this means that if I choose to change databases it will be a major pain in the ass. Do you guys know how to use the connection string from a web.config file instead?

WebMatrix :: Use Database.Open For ConnectionString From Web.config?

Aug 12, 2010

As mentioned in this tutorial (http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/tutorials/5-working-with-data), I tried using my own connectionstring from web.config.

I got this error: "Format of the initialization string does not conform to specification starting at index 0."

The tutorial suggests to use: Database.OpenConnectionString("SmallBakeryConnectionString") method

Instead you should use Database.Open("ConnectionStringName").

Ref: http://cytanium.com/forums/yaf_postsm18_Connection-string-problem.aspx

The API Document is missing Database.Open method and also Database.OpenConnectionString info needs to be modified.

Configuration :: Define HttpRuntime Element In The Config File?

Feb 21, 2011

The httpRuntime element configures ASP.NET HTTP run-time settings that determine how a request for an ASP.NET application is processed.

Is it a good idea to customize this element in the config file.

The user has indicated that the application seems to be kicking her out, even though she is sure that she is submitting a form faster than every 30 minutes.

My Config file has these vales set, am I missing anything?

Unable To Read Config Settings From External Config Files

Sep 1, 2010

We are experiencing some strange behaviour on one of our ASP.NET web servers (Windows 2003 64-bit). After some activity, two third-party controls are unable to run correctly. One is log4net (it does not write error messages out) and the other is a menu control (it displays eval message instead of picking up its license). The one common thread is that both controls pick up their config from external config files (linked to from web.config).

Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this or experienced this in any way. Is it related to file/folder rights? The server has been running fine for a while and just started exhibiting this behaviour. Perhaps it occurs around the time the worker processes are recycled.
