Examples

This example demonstrates how to specify values declaratively for several attributes of the webParts section, which can also be accessed as members of the WebPartsSection class.

The following configuration file example shows how to specify values declaratively for the webParts section.

<system.web>  
  <webParts>  
    <personalization  
      defaultProvider=" AspNetSqlPersonalizationProvider ">  
        <!-- Providers may only be defined at the   
            application level -->  
      <providers>  
        <add name="AspNetSqlPersonalizationProvider"  
type="System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.SqlPersonalizationProvider"  
        connectionStringName="LocalSqlServer"  
        applicationName="/" />        
      </providers>  
      <authorization>  
        <deny users="*" verbs="enterSharedScope" />  
        <allow users="Admin" verbs="modifyState" />  
      </authorization>  
    </personalization>  
    <transformers>  
      <add name="RowToFieldTransformer"  
        type="System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.RowToFieldTransformer" />  
      <add name="RowToFilterTransformer"  
        type="System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.RowToFilterTransformer" />  
      <add name="RowToParametersTransformer"  
type="System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.RowToParametersTransformer" />  
    </transformers>  
  </webParts>  
</system.web>
