GetRolesForUser Method

RoleProvider.GetRolesForUser Method

Gets a list of the roles that a specified user is in for the configured applicationName.

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

abstract GetRolesForUser : 
        username:string -> string[] 

Parameters

username
Type: System.String
The user to return a list of roles for.

Return Value

Type: System.String[]
A string array containing the names of all the roles that the specified user is in for the configured applicationName.

GetRolesForUser is called by the GetRolesForUser method of the Roles class to retrieve the role names that the specified user is associated with from the data source. Only the roles for the configured ApplicationName are retrieved.

If no roles exist for the specified user for the configured applicationName, we recommend that your provider return a string array with no elements.

If the specified user name is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or is an empty string, we recommend that your provider throw an exception.

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