public sealed class ScriptingProfileServiceSection : ConfigurationSection

The ScriptingProfileServiceSection class enables you to programmatically access and modify the profileService element of the configuration section for ASP.NET applications that use AJAX functionality.

The profile service is used to get and set profile properties for the user identity that is associated with the current request. This means that the profile service works for authenticated users. It also works for anonymous users when the anonymous identification feature is enabled (or available) in the configuration file.

The following example shows how to declaratively specify values for properties of the ScriptingProfileServiceSection class in a configuration file.

      <profileService enabled="true" 
        writeAccessProperties="FirstName,LastName" />

The following example shows how to access the ScriptingProfileServiceSection section programmatically.

// Get the Web application configuration.
System.Configuration.Configuration configuration =

// Get the external Web services section.
ScriptingWebServicesSectionGroup webServicesSection =

// Get the profile service section.
ScriptingProfileServiceSection profileSection =
