HI, i'm try to extract some keys from the app.config file in visual studio mac, but isn't working.

using System;
using System.Configuration;
using Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UnitTesting;
using OpenQA.Selenium;
using OpenQA.Selenium.Chrome;

namespace PrimoFramework
    public class UnitTest1
        public void TestMethod1()



This is my app.config file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

       <add key = "Browser" value="Chrome"/>
         <add key = "Username" value=""/>
          <add key = "Password" value="1995!Mille"/>


I create the app.config file adding a new file at the project and i tried to link it with my file.cs using the relative Nuget Package "system.configuration".

What I have tried:

Using the method WriteLine for see if all was working I received this message on the output:

This is my output:

No return value.

Is here anyone how knows how to solve the problem with the mac?

The tag in the xml needs to be <appSettings></appSettings>

The key in your App.config file should be appSettings with a trailing "s".

I do not have a Mac system but it works fine in Windows. You need to use the debugger to find out what is happening.
