Modifying Configuration Settings
The most important part of
configuration for the web developer is, of course, understanding how
to modify the configuration files to achieve the desired ends.
Unfortunately, in the first release of the .NET Framework and Visual
Studio .NET, there aren’t any rich GUI tools for
editing configuration files (which sounds like a great third-party
opportunity). As a result, editing configuration files is not
terribly straightforward. The next several examples illustrate the
basic techniques for editing
Remember that ASP.NET configuration files follow XML syntax rules, including case-sensitivity of element and attribute names. Element and attribute names in ASP.NET configuration files typically use camel casing, in which the first letter of the initial word is lowercase and the first letter of each subsequent word is uppercase.
Also note that some (but not all) attribute
values are case sensitive. While this case
sensitivity is specific to the ASP.NET implementation rather than to
XML, it’s still a good idea to follow the case used
in the examples when modifying configuration files.
