    What is the required reference for DataConfig? 

    The type or namespace name 'DataConfig' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

     

    I want to access the Sitefinity database connection string from Data.Config.

    Or otherwise, how can I query the database directly from c#?

    Thanks.
