// 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;

bool allowOverride =
    sInfo.AllowOverride;
Console.WriteLine("Allow override: {0}",
               allowOverride.ToString());
