{
    // Get the current configuration file.
    System.Configuration.Configuration config =
            ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfiguration(
            ConfigurationUserLevel.None);

    // Get the section.
    UrlsSection section =
        (UrlsSection)config.GetSection("MyUrls");

    // Get the element.
    UrlConfigElement url = section.Simple;

    // Get the element source file.
    ConfigurationValidatorBase elValidator =
        url.ElementInformation.Validator;

    Console.WriteLine("Url element validator: {0}",
                    elValidator.ToString());

}
