Parameters

providerName

The name of the profile provider for the property.

The ProfileProviderAttribute class is used to identify the profile provider for a property of a custom profile implementation. A custom profile implementation is a class that inherits from the ProfileBase abstract class and defines properties for the user profile that are not specified in the profile configuration element.

The following code example defines a class that inherits from the ProfileBase class to create a custom profile. The type of the custom profile is specified in the inherits attribute of the profile configuration element in the Web.config file for an application. For an example of a configuration file that specifies a custom profile implementation, see the ProfileProviderAttribute class overview.

using System;
using System.Web.Profile;

namespace Samples.AspNet.Profile
{
  public class EmployeeProfile : ProfileBase
  {
    [SettingsAllowAnonymous(false)]
    [ProfileProvider("EmployeeInfoProvider")]
    public string Department
    {
      get { return base["EmployeeDepartment"].ToString(); }
      set { base["EmployeeDepartment"] = value; }
    }

    [SettingsAllowAnonymous(false)]
    [ProfileProvider("EmployeeInfoProvider")]
    public EmployeeInfo Details
    {
      get { return (EmployeeInfo)base["EmployeeInfo"]; }
      set { base["EmployeeInfo"] = value; }
    }
