How to retrieve specific connection string from App.Config file using C# (.NET)

Get specific connection string from App.Config file using C# (.NET)

The connection string can be retrieved from the App.Config file using ConnectionStrings method of ConfigurationManager. You need to add the following directive in the code:

using System.Configuration;

The ConnectionStrings method without any arguments will return a collection of Connection strings in the App.Config file. If you want to retrieve specific ones you can either pass an index or string to it

private static string retsettings(String sConnName)
                ConnectionStringSettings sConnection = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings[sConnName];
                return sConnection.ConnectionString;
            catch (Exception ex1)
                return null;
            { }
