Every once in a while, we would like to keep some of the application settings in a web config file to handle tasks like Database location and file location. Here is a quick way too read from a Web.config file
<!-- Somewhere in the web.config fole -->
<add key="NameOfTheKey" value="Value"/>
<add key="FooKey" value="\\folder\Shared Documents"/>
Here is how to get the file in C#
string location = WebConfigurationManager.AppSettings["NameOfTheKey"]; //location will be "Value"
Hope that helps
