// Add a connection string to the connection

static void AddConnectionStrings()
{
   
    // Get the count of the connection strings.
    int connStrCnt = 
        ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings.Count;
    
    // Define the string name.
    string csName = "ConnStr" + 
        connStrCnt.ToString();

    // Get the configuration file.
    System.Configuration.Configuration config =
        ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfiguration(
        ConfigurationUserLevel.None);
    
    // Add the connection string.
    ConnectionStringsSection csSection =
        config.ConnectionStrings;
    csSection.ConnectionStrings.Add(
        new ConnectionStringSettings(csName,
            "LocalSqlServer: data source=127.0.0.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;" +
            "Initial Catalog=aspnetdb", "System.Data.SqlClient"));
