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

Protected Overrides Sub LoadPersonalizationBlobs (
	webPartManager As WebPartManager,
	path As String,
	userName As String,
	ByRef sharedDataBlob As Byte(),
	ByRef userDataBlob As Byte()


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.
