You can set your connection string in app.config file in appSettings section
<add key="name_of_your_connection_string_name" value="your_conection_string_parameters"/>

alternatively you can also write your connection string in Setting file:-
right-click on your project -> add -> new item -> select Settings file ->
then in the setting file add N
Name = "your connection string name"
Type = string
Scope = "Application"
Value = "your_conection_string_parameters" like data source = ""

hope this helps you.
