Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)
The ProfileGroupSettings class provides a way to programmatically create, access, and modify groups of properties added to the group subsection of the profile section of a configuration file.
The profile section of the configuration file specifies a schema for user profiles. At run time, the ASP.NET compilation system uses the information specified in the profile section to generate a class called ProfileCommon, which is derived from ProfileBase. The ProfileCommon class definition is based on the properties defined in the properties subsection of the profile section of the configuration file. An instance of this class is created for each user profile, and you can access the individual profile values in your code through the HttpContext.Profile property. For more information about the profile features added to ASP.NET 2.0, see ASP.NET Profile Properties.
The following code example shows how to use the ProfileGroupSettings type. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ProfileSection class.
// Add a new group. ProfileGroupSettings newPropGroup = new ProfileGroupSettings("Forum"); profileSection.PropertySettings.GroupSettings.Add(newPropGroup); // Add a new PropertySettings to the group. ProfilePropertySettings newProp = new ProfilePropertySettings("AvatarImage"); newProp.Type = "System.String, System.dll"; newPropGroup.PropertySettings.Add(newProp); // Remove a PropertySettings from the group. newPropGroup.PropertySettings.Remove("AvatarImage"); newPropGroup.PropertySettings.RemoveAt(0); // Clear all PropertySettings from the group. newPropGroup.PropertySettings.Clear();
