Membership Provider

P: n/a
Sorry for cross post, forgot to include aspnet in orinal...

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

I'm in the process of implementing custom RoleProvider & Membership Provider
objects and have run into a snag with the Membership Provider.

It seems many of the MembershipUser properties are read-only. This seems,
well stupid, IMO.

I can override these in a class that inherits from MembershipUser and set
them via parameters in the constructor, but that's a lot of work for what
seems should be read-write properties, especially when implementing a custom
provider for another data store. For example, IsLockedOut is read
only?Shouldn't I be able to write to this property when returning a
MembershipUser for the GetUser method?

My question is, is there any other way to access these read only properties?
Have I missed something obvious?

Thanks again,

Morgan

Hi Morgan,

Welcome to ASPNET newsgroup.
As for the MembershipUser class, yes, it has many properteis defined as
readonly. Based on my understanding, those properties are mainly configured
through administration interfaces(most of such methods are defined in
MembershipProvider class), e.g lock a user when the user created and then
active through updating later(through the
SqlMembershipProvider.UnlockUser()).... And all these information stored in
database should not changed outside by normal client application which use
the membership info.... Client application just need to query these
information through GetUser method(retrieved from backend database
storage).... I think that's the reason the buildin MembershipUser class
marked them as readonly .... Of course, we can override or replace them
to all read/writeable in our custom membership framework....

Thanks,
