I have created a C# project using the Telerik ORM and the app.config file was created with the necessary connection string. I would like to retrieve that connection string to use to create SqlConnection to the same database. However, ConfigurationManager.ConnectionString["DatabaseConnection"].ConnectionStrings does not return the connection string in the file. Is there a way to access the connection string contained in the app.config file and retrieve a string value to be assign to a SqlConnection.
conn = request.CreateConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["DatabaseConnection"].ConnectionString);
