At run time, the ASP.NET compilation system uses the information specified in the profile section of the configuration file to generate a class called ProfileCommon, which is derived from ProfileBase. The class allows you to access and modify the values for individual user profiles.

The ProfileCommon class definition is based on the properties defined in the properties subsection of the profile section of the configuration file. The parameter values that you specify when you create an instance of the ProfilePropertySettings class will be used to define an associated property in the ProfileCommon class.
