WebPartsPersonalization provides configuration support for personalization options for Web Parts, such as the personalization provider and personalization authorizations.

This example demonstrates how to specify values declaratively for several attributes of the webParts section, which can also be accessed as members of the WebPartsPersonalization class.

The following configuration file example shows how to specify values declaratively for the webParts section.

        <!—- Providers may only be defined at the 
            application level -->
         <add name="AspNetSqlPersonalizationProvider"
            applicationName="/" />      
        <deny users="*" verbs="enterSharedScope" />
        <allow users="*" verbs="modifyState" />

The following code example demonstrates how to use the WebPartsPersonalization class.

This code example is part of a larger example provided for the WebPartsSection class.

// Get the current DefaultProvider property value.
	"Current DefaultProvider value: '{0}'",

// Set the DefaultProvider property.
webPartsSection.Personalization.DefaultProvider = 
// Add a provider.
	new ProviderSettings("CustomProvider", 

// List current providers.
for (int pi = 0; 
	pi < webPartsSection.Personalization.Providers.Count; pi++)
	Console.WriteLine("  #{0} Name={1} Type={2}", pi,

// Add an authorization.
AuthorizationRule ar = 
	new AuthorizationRule(AuthorizationRuleAction.Allow);

// List current authorizations.
for (int ai = 0;
	ai < webPartsSection.Personalization.Authorization.Rules.Count; 
	Console.WriteLine("  #{0}:", ai);
	AuthorizationRule aRule = 
	Console.WriteLine("  Verbs=");
	foreach (string verb in aRule.Verbs)
		Console.WriteLine("    * {0}", verb);
	Console.WriteLine("  Roles=");
	foreach (string role in aRule.Roles)
		Console.WriteLine("    * {0}", role);
	Console.WriteLine("  Users=");
	foreach (string user in aRule.Users)
		Console.WriteLine("    * {0}", user);
