  • You  would most likely have to use jQuery or JavaScript to execute Ajax to access a MVC controller action method to go read the config file and return the results.

    This can be discussed at the MVC forum in ASP.NET forums.

    They can tell you have to use Razor to load your config file setting from the config via server side code. Since you're using a server-side path for the link Razor will let you inject the value on the server side before sending to the client.
