SqlPersonalizationProvider.SavePersonalizationBlob Method

Saves raw personalization data to the underlying Microsoft SQL Server database.

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

protected override void SavePersonalizationBlob(
	WebPartManager webPartManager,
	string path,
	string userName,
	byte[] dataBlob


Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.WebPartManager
The WebPartManager managing the personalization data.
Type: System.String
A PersonalizationScope indicating the personalization information to be saved. This value cannot be null.
Type: System.String
The user name for personalization information in the User scope to be used as the key.
Type: System.Byte[]
The byte array of data to be saved.

If a non-null user name is provided, then the dataBlob parameter contains personalization data for User scope; otherwise, dataBlob is assumed to contain data for Shared scope.

The SqlPersonalizationProvider object automatically updates the LastActivityDate column in the aspnet_Users table each time user-specific personalization data is saved to 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.
