read web.config appsettings from child assembly


A

Andrus

I need to read web.config from child assembly.
Main assembly contains internal wrapper class which probably cannot used.

So I tried code below but got exception

web.config does not contain appsettings

I verifed that rootWebConfig1.FilePath points to correct file below.
How to read application setting from this file from child assembly ?

Andrus.

public string Server
{
get
{

System.Configuration.Configuration rootWebConfig1 =
System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration("~");
// rootWebConfig1.FilePath points to correct file.
if (0 < rootWebConfig1.AppSettings.Settings.Count)
{
System.Configuration.KeyValueConfigurationElement
customSetting =
rootWebConfig1.AppSettings.Settings["Server"];
if (null != customSetting)
return customSetting.Value;
else
throw new ArgumentException("No Server application
string");
}
throw new ArgumentException("web.config does not contain
appsettings");
}}

web.config contains:
