This is the first draft of a simple tool that allows you to get the values of settings inside a standard .net .config file like the ones you generate with Visual Studio.

Nothing fancy really, but hopefully it saves someone some work.

A sample config file is included as well as a simple explanation on how to use the nodes.

A standard string output version and a generic version are included.

This first draft attempts to make use of a Singleton, which means all your nodes should point at the same config file for them to behave as expected. This may change in the future.

Thanks to sebescudie and sebl for sharing their significantly more sophisticated solutions, I will try to bring in some of your ideas going forward.

@ravazques thats a good initiative, but I think you should read the file only once... currently, every settings entry reader opens the file and reads it. this could be done only once on create of a central node that also contains the single instance and the path to the file. this node can then be used by all individual entry nodes.

Hi @tonfilm, thanks for your comment.

My initial idea was to do exactly what you describe, and this:

was my naive attempt to do just that, in my brain, the PathExists was only toggling once, but I can see that this is probably not how it actually works.

What would be the right approach then? Only the path goes into the singleton and then only when the singleton changes read the XML?

Cheers and thanks again!
