Reading App settings from app.config or web.config in .net C#

For Sample App.config like below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <add key="countoffiles" value="7" />
    <add key="logfilelocation" value="abc.txt" />

You read the above app settings using code shown below:
using System.Configuration;
You may also need to also add a reference to System.Configuration in your project if there isn't one already. You can then access the values like so:
string configvalue1 = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["countoffiles"];
string configvalue2 = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["logfilelocation"];
Enjoyyyy.... :)
