WebPartPersonalization.Enabled Property

Returns a value indicating whether personalization is requested to be enabled for the associated WebPartManager control.

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

public virtual bool Enabled { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if personalization is enabled; otherwise, false.


An attempt was made to set this property value after the associated WebPartManager control's OnInit method had completed.

This property indicates whether personalization is requested to be enabled for the parent WebPartManager control. Note that this is a subtle but important distinction from the intent of IsEnabled and IsInitialized.

This property can only be set prior to the completion of the WebPartManager control's OnInit method. In practice, this means that the Enabled property must be set in the page markup on the WebPartManager element if personalization should be disabled. Alternatively, this property can be set during the PreInit phase of the WebPartManager control.
