NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodProfileProviderAttribute(String)

Creates a new instance of the ProfileProviderAttribute class with the specified profile provider name.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyProviderName

Gets the name of the profile provider for the user-profile property.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTypeId

When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsDefaultAttribute()

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodMatch(Object)

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount(UInt32)

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

The ProfileProviderAttribute class is used to identify the profile provider for a property of a custom profile implementation. A custom profile implementation is a class that inherits from the ProfileBase abstract class and defines properties for the user profile that are not specified in the configuration element. You can specify a custom type for the user profile using the inherits attribute of the configuration element in the Web.config file for an application, as shown in the following example.

<configuration>
  <connectionStrings>
    <add name="SqlServices" connectionString=
      "Data Source=localhost;Integrated Security=SSPI;Initial Catalog=aspnetdb;" />
  </connectionStrings>

  <system.web>
    <authentication mode="Forms" >
      <forms loginUrl="login.aspx"
        name=".ASPXFORMSAUTH" />
    </authentication>

    <authorization>
      <deny users="?" />
    </authorization>

    <profile inherits="Samples.AspNet.Profile.EmployeeProfile"
      defaultProvider="SqlProvider">
      <providers>
        <clear />
        <add
          name="SqlProvider"
          type="System.Web.Profile.SqlProfileProvider" 
          connectionStringName="SqlServices" 
          description="SQL Profile Provider for Sample"/> 
        <add
          name="EmployeeInfoProvider"
          type="System.Web.Profile.SqlProfileProvider" 
          connectionStringName="SqlServices" 
          description="SQL Profile Provider for Employee Info"/> 
      </providers>

      <properties>
        <add name="GarmentSize" />
      </properties>
    </profile>
  </system.web>
</configuration>

The following code example defines a class that inherits from the ProfileBase class to create a custom profile. The type of the custom profile is specified in the inherits attribute of the configuration element in the Web.config file for an application.

Imports System
Imports System.Web.Profile

Namespace Samples.AspNet.Profile

  Public Class EmployeeProfile
    Inherits ProfileBase

    <SettingsAllowAnonymous(False)> _
    <ProfileProvider("EmployeeInfoProvider")> _
    Public Property Department As String
      Get
        Return MyBase.Item("EmployeeDepartment").ToString()
      End Get
      Set
        MyBase.Item("EmployeeDepartment") = value
      End Set
    End Property

    <SettingsAllowAnonymous(False)> _
    <ProfileProvider("EmployeeInfoProvider")> _
    Public Property Details As EmployeeInfo
      Get
        Return CType(MyBase.Item("EmployeeInfo"), EmployeeInfo)
      End Get
      Set
        MyBase.Item("EmployeeInfo") = value
      End Set
    End Property
  End Class

  Public Class EmployeeInfo
    Public Name As String
    Public Address As String
    Public Phone As String
    Public EmergencyContactName As String
    Public EmergencyContactAddress As String
    Public EmergencyContactPhone As String
  End Class
