Gets or sets a value indicating whether the associated property in the dynamically generated ProfileCommon class can be set by anonymous users.

Namespace:   System.Web.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

[ConfigurationPropertyAttribute("allowAnonymous", DefaultValue = false)]
public bool AllowAnonymous { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the associated property in the ProfileCommon class can be set by anonymous users; otherwise, false, indicating that anonymous users cannot change the property value. The default is false.

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 property values that you specify for an instance of the ProfilePropertySettings class will be used to define an associated property in the ProfileCommon class.

An exception is thrown if a property in the ProfileCommon class is changed by an anonymous user when the AllowAnonymous property value is false.

The following code example shows how to use the AllowAnonymous property. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ProfileSection class.

// Get the current AllowAnonymous property value.
Console.WriteLine(
    "Current AllowAnonymous value: '{0}'", profilePropertySettings.AllowAnonymous);

// Set the AllowAnonymous property to true.
profilePropertySettings.AllowAnonymous = true;
