The following code example adds a collection of users to a group. The example assumes the existence of a local XML file that contains information about the users, which is loaded into a System.Xml.XmlDocument object. This example requires that a using (Visual C#) or Imports (Visual Basic) directive be included for the System.Xml namespace.

Web_Reference_Folder_Name.UserGroup usrgrpService = new Web_Reference_Folder_Name.UserGroup();
usrgrpService.Credentials= System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;

XmlDocument myDocument = new XmlDocument();
myDocument.Load("URL");

XmlNode ndUsers = myDocument.DocumentElement;

usrgrpService.AddUserCollectionToGroup("Group_Name", ndUsers);
