Hi All,
I am new in vb.net. I am using Visual Studio 2003 and sql 2000.
I want to use configuration manager to retrive the connection from app.config

But I am getting error " Name 'ConfigurationManager' is not declared"

the code, I written, is as follows:
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Imports System.Configuration
Imports System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Namespace PC

Public Class DataEntry
Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

Public Shared Function GetConnectionString(ByVal conName As String) As String
Dim strReturn As New String("")
If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(conName) Then
strReturn = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionString(conName).ConnectionString
Else
strReturn = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionString("Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=ACCOUNTS;Data Source=winxp").ConnectionString

End If
Return strReturn

End Function

Please help me out...

ConfigurationManager did not exist until .net 2.0, use visual studio 2005 to be able to use it.

thanks dear. but can u tell me if i can use other code instead of configurationmanager?
i will be greatful of u if u could provide me alternate code..

And i think bindingsource is also not exist in VS 2003. Pls give me the alternate for binding source also if possible.

with regards

In .net 1.1 you can use the configuration namespace

System.Configuration.AppSettings

but as stated, in .net 2.0 this is deprecated

Thanx . I will try n then reply again.

with warm regards
