    configuration settings problem

    Code:
    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Configuration;
    
    
    namespace ConsoleApplication1
    {
        class Program
        {
            static void Main(string[] args)
            {
                string astring;
                astring = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["avalue"];
                Console.WriteLine(astring);
            }
        }
    }
    Warning 1 'System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings.AppSet tings' is obsolete: 'This method is obsolete, it has been replaced by System.Configuration!System.Configuration.Configur ationManager.AppSettings' C:\Documents and Settings\mixalis\Local Settings\Application Data\Temporary Projects\ConsoleApplication1\Program.cs 14 23 ConsoleApplication1

    In another forum I found :

    The most likely issue is that you're missing a reference to the System.Configuration.dll. This particular deprecation was certainly one of the most confusing, because the new type is actually in a completely different assembly. System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings was in System.dll.
    but I cannot understand what I should change!!! Can you help???

    xml file
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <configuration>
    <appSettings>
    <add key="avalue" value="mike" />

    </appSettings>
    </configuration>

    Do exactly as you were told:

    ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings is obsolete.

    Instead, use ConfigurationManager.AppSettings'

    To do so, don't forget to include System.Configuration in your references.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
