MembershipUserCollection Class

A collection of MembershipUser objects.

Namespace:  System.Web.Security
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

[SerializableAttribute]
[AspNetHostingPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
public sealed class MembershipUserCollection : ICollection, 
	IEnumerable

A System.Web.Security.MembershipUserCollection is returned from the GetAllUsers, FindUsersByName, and FindUsersByEmail methods of the System.Web.Security.Membership class. The MembershipUserCollection objects returned by the GetAllUsers, FindUsersByName, and FindUsersByEmail methods contain a snapshot of user information in the membership data store. That is, changes to the membership user information in a MembershipUserCollection are not reflected in the membership data store. To modify membership user information in the membership data store, use the UpdateUser, CreateUser and DeleteUser methods of the System.Web.Security.Membership class.

NoteNote:

If you are not familiar with the membership features of ASP.NET, see Introduction to Membership before continuing. For a list of other topics related to membership, see Managing Users by Using Membership.

The following code example returns a list of membership users with a count of the number of users currently online. For an example of an ASP.NET application configured to use membership, see the Membership class.
