AppSettingsReader GetValues

Hi,
Consider following app.config

<configuration>
<appSettings>
<add key="Fields" value="Field1" />
<add key="Fields" value="Field2" />
<add key="Fields" value="Field3" />
</appSettings>
</configuration>

Is there any way to retrieve all three values for one key.
Its very possible and easy in an XML Document ( infact i do it but as an
app.config.xml ).
So the AppSettingsReader provide ONLY ONE method GetValue and the internal
XML Document isnt exposed.

ReQuote: How to get multiple values on same key from an app.config file ?
Something Like GetValues( key, values() )

So is there a way to do it without writing own XML document parsing code?

Thanx in advance

Hey,

Take a look at using the ConfigurationSettings.GetConfig() method. I found
the the help file to be of almost negative assistance. Here's a link that's
helped me along:

Basically, you can define configuration sections that can be mapped to a
class you define in code, which can contain pretty much any representation
of the data you want.

HTH,

John
