ProfileGroupBase Constructor

Creates an instance of the ProfileGroupBase class.

Namespace:  System.Web.Profile
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public ProfileGroupBase()

ASP.NET uses the ProfileGroupBase class to create grouped properties in the Profile property for the current HttpContext. When properties are specified as a group of properties using the group Element for properties for profile (ASP.NET Settings Schema) element, ASP.NET creates a new class with strongly typed accessors for each property in the group. The new class inherits the ProfileGroupBase base class.

This class is not intended to be created from your code.

The following Web.config file specifies a user profile that contains a group of properties with a group name of Address. The grouped properties generated for the Profile property of the current HttpContext will be preceded by the group name, for example, Profile.Address.Street.

          <add name="CountryOrRegion" />
        </group>
      </properties>
    </profile>
  </system.web>
</configuration>

The following ASP.NET page reads and sets the grouped properties specified for the user profile.
