web.config custom Configuration Section

P: n/a
I am trying to implement a configuration section in web.config and was
wondering if I could do it without writing a handeler. I tried in the
<configSections>.

<sectionGroup name="Domains" >
<section name="Domain"
type="System.Configuration.NameValueFileSectionHan dler, System,
Version=1.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" />
</sectionGroup>

and the section

<Domains>
<Domain>
<add key="DomainCD1" value="CD" />
<add key="DomainCD2" value="Extenal" />
</Domain>
<Domain>
<add key="DomainCD1" value="CD2" />
<add key="DomainCD2" value="Extenal2" />
</Domain>
</Domains>

and tried to read it with

Dim CDDomains As ConfigurationSectionGroup =
rootWebConfig1.GetSectionGroup("Domains")

That line worked but I think I am way off on this I could not read anymore
of the section.

Thank you for your help

Hi,

First, I'm not sure if it's a typo in your code: there should be only
section <Domainunder the <Domainssection group.

To read the custom section, it's actually quite simply in .NET 2.0 since we
have a new way to read it:

1) Reference System.Configuration.dll in your project
2) Use following code to read the settings in section <Domain>:

Dim nv As NameValueCollection =
System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.GetSecti on("Domains/Domain")
Dim v1 As String = nv("DomainCD1")
Dim v2 As String = nv("DomainCD2")
You can also iterate over all the keys in the collection using
NameValueCollection's methods.

Walter,

Thank you for your reply. I wanted to have multiple sections in the section
group. I don't know if that is possible in the config file. So I could find
all "domain" sections with psudo code like

for each domain in domains
' read all the keys and do something.
next

is this possible without a custom handeler.

Thank you

Hi Jerry,

As far as I know, it's not possible to have multiple sections with same
name in a section group. When you register a section under a section group,
only one instance can be used.

I'm afraid you will have to create a custom section handler and put those
<domainelements in the section. Please feel free to let me know if you
need further information on this.
