RoleProvider.CreateRole Method

Adds a new role to the data source for the configured applicationName.

Namespace:  System.Web.Security
Assembly:  System.Web.ApplicationServices (in System.Web.ApplicationServices.dll)

Public MustOverride Sub CreateRole ( _
	roleName As String _


Type: System.String

The name of the role to create.

CreateRole is called by the CreateRole method of the Roles class to add the specified role to the data source for the configured ApplicationName.

If the specified role name already exists for the configured applicationName, is Nothing, or is an empty string, we recommend that your provider throw an exception.

If the specified role name contains a comma, we recommend that your provider throw an exception.

If your data source restricts the length of the role name, for example, through a fixed-length column of a table in a database, we recommend that you throw an exception if the role name exceeds the maximum length allowed by the data source.

The following code example shows a sample implementation of the CreateRole method.

Public Overrides Sub CreateRole(rolename As String) 
  If rolename Is Nothing OrElse rolename = "" Then _
    Throw New ProviderException("Role name cannot be empty or null.")
  If rolename.Contains(",") Then _
    Throw New ArgumentException("Role names cannot contain commas.")
  If RoleExists(rolename) Then _
    Throw New ProviderException("Role name already exists.")
  If rolename.Length > 255 Then _
    Throw New ProviderException("Role name cannot exceed 255 characters.")

  Dim conn As OdbcConnection = New OdbcConnection(connectionString)
            Dim cmd As OdbcCommand = New OdbcCommand("INSERT INTO Roles " & _
                                                     " (Rolename, ApplicationName) " & _
                                                     " Values(?, ?)", conn)

            cmd.Parameters.Add("@Rolename", OdbcType.VarChar, 255).Value = rolename
            cmd.Parameters.Add("@ApplicationName", OdbcType.VarChar, 255).Value = ApplicationName


            Catch e As OdbcException
                ' Handle exception. 
            End Try 
        End Sub
