Examples

This section provides two code examples. The first demonstrates how to declaratively specify values for several properties of the RoleManagerSection class. The second demonstrates how to use the RoleManagerSection type.

The following configuration file example shows how to declaratively specify values for several properties of the RoleManagerSection class.

<system.web>  
  <roleManager   
    enabled="false"   
    cacheRolesInCookie="false"   
    cookieName=".ASPXROLES" cookieTimeout="30"  
    cookiePath="/" cookieRequireSSL="false"  
    cookieSlidingExpiration="true" createPersistentCookie="false"  
    cookieProtection="All"   
    defaultProvider="AspNetSqlRoleProvider"  
    maxCachedResults="25"  >  
    <providers>  
      <add   
        name="AspNetSqlRoleProvider"  
        connectionStringName="LocalSqlServer"   
        applicationName="/"  
        type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider, System.Web,  
          Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral,  
          PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />  
      <add   
        name="AspNetWindowsTokenRoleProvider"   
        applicationName="/"  
        type="System.Web.Security.WindowsTokenRoleProvider, System.Web,   
          Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral,   
          PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />  
    </providers>  
  </roleManager>  
</system.web>  

The following code example demonstrates how to use the RoleManagerSection type.
