Solution 1

Adding Keys in app.config file
    <add key="author" value="Palanisamy Veerasingam"/>
    <add key="article" value="Configuration Sections"/>
Retreiving the Key value in your application
 return (ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["author"]);

Solution 2

Use a settings file:
In Visual Studio, go to "project properties" -> "Settings"
In the shown datagrid add a row with "Name"->TaxPercentage, Type=double, Scope=Application, Value=12
this will result in a new section in your app.config:
        <sectionGroup name="applicationSettings" type="System.Configuration.ApplicationSettingsGroup, System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" >
            <section name="WindowsFormsApplication1.Properties.Settings" type="System.Configuration.ClientSettingsSection, System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" requirePermission="false" />
and the stored setting:
            <setting name="Setting" serializeAs="String">
to access your settings in Code just add a using directive like:
using WindowsFormsApplication1.Properties;
and access your configurable value with:
double value = Settings.Default.TaxPercentage;
this will give you a leightweight but typesafe configurable value in your application
- leightweight, cause you don´t have to write custom config sections, what i prefer if i have to manage many configurable parameters of my application/service/etc.
- typesafe, cause the configuration-system will make sure that the your setting will always be of the expected type
