SqlPersonalizationProvider.LoadPersonalizationBlobs Method

Loads personalization data from the underlying data store, based on the specified parameters.

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

protected override void LoadPersonalizationBlobs(
	WebPartManager webPartManager,
	string path,
	string userName,
	ref byte[] sharedDataBlob,
	ref byte[] userDataBlob


Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.WebPartManager
The WebPartManager managing the personalization data.
Type: System.String
The path for personalization information in the Shared scope to be used as the retrieval key.
Type: System.String
The user name for personalization information in the User scope to be used as the retrieval key.
Type: System.Byte[]%
The returned data for the Shared scope.
Type: System.Byte[]%
The returned data for the User scope.

This method uses the webPartManager, path, and username parameters as retrieval keys. The returned data contains:

  • The Shared data returned in the sharedDataBlob parameter.

  • Depending on the key values, User data is returned in the userDataBlob parameter. A non-null value for the userName parameter indicates that User data is also retrieved.

The SqlPersonalizationProvider object automatically updates the LastActivityDate column in the aspnet_Users table each time user-specific personalization data is loaded from the database in the context of a page request. This behavior allows other ASP.NET features to use the LastActivityDate property when managing stale data records as well as determining recent user activity on a site.
