ProfilePropertySettings.Type Property

Gets or sets the name of the type of the associated property in the dynamically generated ProfileCommon class.

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

public string Type { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_Type ()

/** @property */
public void set_Type (String value)

public function get Type () : String

public function set Type (value : String)

Not applicable.

Property Value

A valid, fully qualified type reference, or an empty string (""). The default is an empty string.

When set to a valid type reference, this type is used for the named property in the generated ProfileCommon class.

The type reference is formed as follows (items in brackets are not required): Namespace.Typename, Assemblyname[,] [Version=x,] [Culture=y,] [PublicKeyToken=z]

For example:

"ExampleNameSpace.ExampleType, Example.Assembly, Version=%ASSEMBLY_VERSION%, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=%MICROSOFT_PUBLICKEY%"

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

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

// Set the Type property to "System.DateTime".
profilePropertySettings.Type = "System.DateTime";
