I have a program with various settings, all stored in the app.config file. Often, I have a need to edit the connection string setting. I cannot do so using the My.Settings.myConnectionStringVariable method, as this is read-only. What I would like to do is have a big text box, and simply load the entire app.config file into it. The user could modify whatever they wanted, click save, and the program would save the new edits to the app.config file, and restart the program. I don't have a huge need to only pull out the connection string, as getting the text for the entire config file would suffice. However, if it is easier to pull out just the connection string from the config file, that would work too.
Environment: .Net 3.5 VB.net (C#ok too) I wrote a multi-project WinForms app that needs to load a couple dozen variables from a client section of a config file based on user's selection of client. Also some program variables need to be loaded as well. So far so good, I put them in an app.config file.In the appsettings section I put the main program variables. e.g.
I am trying to execute a VB .net console application called Application1 that I created using Visual Studio 2008 with .net framework 3.5. When I run it under the windows scheduler or from a command prompt it works fine. When I try to run it under a purchased job scheduler, I get a message stating that directory APPLIC~1.config is missing. What properties does system.configuration use when it tries to find an application's .config file? Can these be set when my application starts?
Note: I was able to use ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfiguration(My.Application.Info.DirectoryPath & "" & My.Application.Info.AssemblyName & ".exe") to get around this issue but would like a cleaner solution. I do not want to do this each time I want to retrieve an appSetting entry.
I am trying to build custom configuration section in my app.config file. I am using the following as my example: [URL]. According to this article, I am supposed to inherit from the ConfigurationSection class, add the desired section to my app.config file, and then specify a "configSections" declaration in the app.config file to identify the section and the class that should process it. My problem is that I cannot get the class loader to load my class for processing the section.
If I follow the example and set up my "configSections" as: <configSections> <section name="MyStuff.Configuration" type="MyStuff.MyConfigurer" allowLocation="true" allowDefinition="Everywhere" /> </configSections>
I get the following error: Could not load type 'MyStuff.MyConfigurer' from assembly 'System.Configuration, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'.
I think the error is telling me it can't load my class from the System.Configuration DLL and that makes sense; the class is in my application code. So how do I tell it to look in my application code to find the class? Do I have to put my class in its own DLL to get this to work? As an alternative approach, is there some way I can just find the section in the application configuration and process the XML myself? The app.config file is the ideal location for this information. Also, this would be easier for me than going through all of these contortions to do what should be a relatively easy operation.
My configuration file has the following settings for logging. I want to read the Switches Value attribute to see if Debug is set to 4 (Debug logging) so that I can retain some temporary files. How to I read the value using configuration manager?[code]...
I want to write the connection string of my application in app.config file. I dont know how to write it or how to dynamically change it from my application source code either. My App.config file shows like..
I would like to be able to read the entire document, and make changes to it before run time. I am making a deployment tool for my application, and most of my customers do not want to rename their servers, nor do I want to have to rename the server in the connection string section of the app config file.
I got an ASP.NET app from someone who used to run it on his IIS on Windows XP (I don't know which IIS version he has).When I tried to deploy it on my IIS (v7.5 - Windows 7) - I can't open its default.aspx file and I get the following error page:
HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error
Error Code 0x80070021
Config Error : This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at a parent level. Locking is either by default (overrideModeDefault="Deny"), or set explicitly by a location tag with overrideMode="Deny" or the legacy
Is there a simple way to read from the global application.exe.config file from a dll?urrently I am loading the file as an XmlDocument but I wonder if there is a better solution.That's what I mean:If I create a new WinForms Project I have a Settings Tab in the Project properties where I can add some simple values (And I want to access the per Application settings, not the user beased ones).From my code I can access these values with:
The Settings class is autogenerated in the file Settings.Designer.cs.Now I have the case where a dll need's to read the settings from the Main Application's config file. Is there a simple way to achive this? Currently I am reading the file as an XML Document.
I am using VB.NET 2010 with a solution that consists of class libraries and winform projects.
Each project has an app.config for it's specific needs. There are however, several settings that are common across all projects. I would like to implement a common config file to hold those, but that effort hasn't been very successful.
After much searching I developed a test program to play with and it was working until I moved the Globalsettings into a separate file. Below is a paste of my code along with the config files I've been experimenting with. I've added the references to system.configuration and made sure my config files are set to always copy to the output directory.
The code compiles, but GlobalSettingsLookup is never set to an instance of NamevalueCollection. I'm guessing it's because the ConfigurationManager can't load the section "GlobalSettings"(?) That's just a guess
Dim GlobalsettingsLookup As NameValueCollection = CType(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.GetSection("GlobalSettings"), System.Collections.Specialized.NameValueCollection)
Dear Friends: I have some files in 1 folder directory that show "XML Configuration File" under type. But none of these files show the extension .config. The directory filesare like C0150,C0150_new,C0200,C0200_new etc. I need to change only 1 attribute of each of these files. I need to write a VS.Net project to do this. I have to send the .exe file(from bin directory of this VS.Net project) to my client and they will just double click the .exe file and it will change that attribute in all the .config files.
The C0150 file looks like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <configuration>
1.Manager : dll containing Iterface definition and other things
2.Implementation: dll containing Implementation of the Interface
3.Executable: (maybe this one could be a external application or another dll using the libraries)
I have particular methods (iside the interface dll file) that extract information of real Implementation from AppSettings keys in order to instance it using reflection. I use the Manager inside the Excecutable, but when I try to retrieve a especific key defined in "Manager.dll.config" (appSettings), the value returned is empty because the configuration file used is "Excecutable.exe.config" I need this configuration information in Manager config file because this Manager will be used from other programs and the configuration must be centralized into that config file to replicate the possible changes to every app calling this dll.How can I to specify that the ConfigurarionManager.AppSettings must extract values from manager.dll.config file?
how to fix the exception that occurs when an .EXE file is run from the the Network Share. This application works fine when running from the local machine. I have been trying a lot to fix this issue for a while, but without any success.
I'm trying to use an XmlTextReader to read simple XML data from a file I wrote using the XmlTextWriter class. I've very little experience with XML and reading/writing from it, so it's been a little struggle. The writing part went OK though, but I can't really figure out how to do the reading. All examples I found using google handled it all slightly differently, and none made it really clear what they were trying to read...I am storing the position, size and a filepath of MDI windows using this format:
xml <?xml version="1.0"?> <MDIForms> <Form X="208" Y="95" W="424" H="277">C:UsersNickDesktopabc.plm</Form>
obviously I cannot do what I want with this. I need to get the attributes in each element too, and I need to read multiple elements and do something for each element...
i'm trying to read from a file and copy the text into a 2d array withought the selected item from a list box then rewrite the file from the array into the text file. however it writes a single part of the array times the variable count when i write back to the csv file. within the array everything is correct its only when i rewrite to the file is when the problems occur.

I am working on a program with multiple collections related to one another for a school project. Each collection needs to have its own defined properties and have the objects written (1 per line) to a text file.
I have all of that working.
When reading the comma-separated line from the file, I want to place one of the properties of the object in a listbox (so that all the objects' names will show up in the listbox). I think I have this part figured out...
My problem is that when you click on the name in the listbox, I would like multiple text boxes to be populated with the appropriate, corresponding properties of the particular object in the collection...is there a way for this to be done?
