    Sometime we require a condition where we need to add html tags in <appSettings> value.
    If we directly  add html tags in value then it gives the syntax error. To resolve this we need to add html tags in encoded form.
    Here, below is the example of this:


    1. Use encoded html - for "<" use &lt; and for ">" use &gt;
    eg:

    In C#.NET

    web.config:

    <add key="example" value="Hi, &lt;br&gt; &lt;/br&gt; This is a C# example. " />

    .cs file

    string s= Convert.ToString(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("example"));

    then s will return as

    Hi,

    This is a C# example.

     

    In VB.NET

    web.config:

    <add key="example" value="Hi, &lt;br&gt; &lt;/br&gt; This is a VB example. " />

    .vb file

    Dim s As String
    s=Convert.ToString(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("example"))

    then s will return as

    Hi,

    This is a VB example.

     

     

    Hope this code will help you. Thanks
