Can any one tell me how to read connection string from XML file ??

Thanks in advance for you help

add the xml file and .dtd file in ur debug folder and add following code in where you want to extract connection string (Supposing your xml file has connection string as the first attribute )

XmlReader xmlrdr;
            XmlReaderSettings readerSetting = new XmlReaderSettings();
            readerSetting.ProhibitDtd = false;

            if (File.Exists(Application.StartupPath.ToString() + "\\FileName.xml"))
            {
                xmlrdr = XmlReader.Create(Application.StartupPath.ToString() + "\\FileName.xml", readerSetting);
            }
            else
            {
                Domain domain = Domain.GetCurrentDomain();
                DomainController dc = domain.PdcRoleOwner;
                xmlrdr = XmlReader.Create("\\\\" + dc.Name.Split('.').GetValue(0).ToString() + "\\FileName$\\FileName.xml", readerSetting);
            }

            while (xmlrdr.Read())
            {
                xmlrdr.MoveToElement();
                if (xmlrdr.NodeType == XmlNodeType.Element && xmlrdr.Name == "connection")
                {
                    if (xmlrdr.HasAttributes)
                    {
                        xmlrdr.MoveToFirstAttribute();
                        while (xmlrdr.MoveToNextAttribute())
                        {
                          String Connection_string = xmlrdr.GetAttribute(1);
                        }
                    }
                    break;
                }
            }

Thanks Abellazm let me check this
