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

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


SectionInformation sInfo =
    section.SectionInformation;


The following example gets the AllowExeDefinition value.


ConfigurationAllowExeDefinition allowExeDefinition =
                sInfo.AllowExeDefinition;
