[DataContractAttribute] [AspNetHostingPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)] [AspNetHostingPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)] public class ProfilePropertyMetadata
You use the class to retrieve information about a profile property when you access profiles through the ProfileService class. You can retrieve the name and type of the property, whether it is read-only, whether it can be accessed by users who have not been authenticated, and the default value. An application can take the appropriate actions based on these values, such as not trying to set a read-only property.
To access the object from an application that is compatible with the Windows Communication Framework (WCF), use the GetPropertiesMetadata method of the ProfileService class. The user does not have to be logged on to retrieve the object because the metadata for profile properties is not specific to a user's profile property values.
