The web.config in my project contains the database connectionString details. After I upload the latest change of my project to codeplex I see that the connectionString details are visible. Is there anyway I can hide them on codeplex source code tab

If you're asking if there's a way to prevent a file from showing up in the source browser, the answer is no. Open source is public code. :) Perhaps for the source you push up to your project you can include a dummy value in your web.config, then include some direction on what needs to be replaced in your project documentation page? (Or documentation in the code)
