PersonalizationState Class

Defines the basic functionality that represents the personalization data for a page.

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

[AspNetHostingPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
[AspNetHostingPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
public abstract class PersonalizationState

Classes that derive from this base class contain the actual implementation for managing, applying, and extracting personalization data. The WebPartPersonalization class makes use of personalization state with a reference to PersonalizationState.

If a developer writes a custom PersonalizationState implementation, a custom PersonalizationProvider must also be written. PersonalizationProvider instances are responsible for creating and consuming PersonalizationState instances.

Notes to Inheritors:

Derived classes should always call the base class constructor from the derived constructor.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
