Reading AppSettings from ConfigurationManager in .NET 2.0 and later

suggest change

The ConfigurationManager class supports the AppSettings property, which allows you to continue reading settings from the appSettings section of a configuration file the same way as .NET 1.x supported.

app.config

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
  <appSettings>
    <add key="keyName" value="anything, as a string"/>
    <add key="keyNames" value="123"/>
    <add key="keyNames" value="234"/>
  </appSettings>
</configuration>

Program.cs

using System;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Diagnostics;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            string keyValue = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["keyName"];
            Debug.Assert("anything, as a string".Equals(keyValue));

            var twoKeys = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["keyNames"];
            Debug.Assert("234".Equals(twoKeys));

            Console.ReadKey();
        }
    }
}
