QuestionConnection String in Properties.Settings PinmemberTheJudeDude28-Dec-12 7:47 
I am rewriting a desktop application in VS2010 that was written in .Net 1.1. While doing so, I decided to add a couple of features to the app. One is a data source for a drop down list. I am using a local database file (.sdf) for the data.
I noticed in the .Properties.Settings file that the connection string is a hard link to where I entered the file location (which is C:\Users\\Documents\db\). I need this to be more dynamic, due to the fact this app will be on many different computers.
I tried editing to :
"Data Source = " + System.Environment.GetFolderPath(System.Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments) + @"\dbs\latefee.sdf")]
But I receive the following error at compile time:
Error	1	An attribute argument must be a constant expression, typeof expression or array creation expression of an attribute parameter type	C:\Users\brian\AppData\Local\Temporary Projects\latefeedisc\Properties\Settings.Designer.cs	29	68	latefeedisc
 
How do I correct this?
 
Thank you in advance.
Jude
