RoleGroupCollection Class

Note: This class is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Contains a sequential list of role groups that the LoginView control uses to determine which control template to display to users based on their role. This class cannot be inherited.

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

The RoleGroupCollection class manages the list of role groups associated with a particular LoginView template. Each role group defines the content and controls to display to a particular group of users on your Web site. It is possible to assign several role groups to the same template.

To find the role group in the collection that a particular user belongs to, you can use the GetMatchingRoleGroup method to search the collection by user name.

Caution noteCaution

The order of the roles in the RoleGroupCollection collection is important because matching is done sequentially based on the first role found.

You must configure role management to use the RoleGroupCollection class to manage a list of role groups. For more information, see Understanding Role Management.
