It is considered a bad idea to "hardwire" any connection string into your application (which is what including it in the .CS file would do). The reason being that your application would need to be modified should an external change in circumstances or network topology etc. occur - which is quite likely in most environments. That means that the source must be available, a programmer who knows the source must be available, and the compiler must be available. This is not a good thing as it can mean big, unnecessary delays and disruption.

Is there a good reason why you do not want this is in a config file, where it can be easily modified if required?
