Listing 2, Accessing Connection Strings Reliably

Dim cn As String
cn = New ConnectionManager.Northwind

The ConnectionManager class would look like this:

Public Class ConnectionManager
  
       Public ReadOnly Property Northwind As String
        Get
         Return System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationManager. _
                                      ConnectionStrings("Northwind").ConnectionString
        End Get
End Class
