For an example of a configuration file that specifies a custom profile implementation, see the ProfileProviderAttribute class overview.

using System;
using System.Web.Profile;

namespace Samples.AspNet.Profile
{
  public class EmployeeProfile : ProfileBase
  {
    [SettingsAllowAnonymous(false)]
    [ProfileProvider("EmployeeInfoProvider")]
    public string Department
    {
      get { return base["EmployeeDepartment"].ToString(); }
      set { base["EmployeeDepartment"] = value; }
    }

    [SettingsAllowAnonymous(false)]
    [ProfileProvider("EmployeeInfoProvider")]
    public EmployeeInfo Details
    {
      get { return (EmployeeInfo)base["EmployeeInfo"]; }
      set { base["EmployeeInfo"] = value; }
    }

    public string Name;
    public string Address;
    public string Phone;
    public string EmergencyContactName;
    public string EmergencyContactAddress;

      End Get
      Set
        MyBase.Item("EmployeeDepartment") = value
      End Set
    End Property

    <SettingsAllowAnonymous(False)> _

      End Get
      Set
        MyBase.Item("EmployeeInfo") = value
      End Set
    End Property
  End Class

  Public Class EmployeeInfo
    Public Name As String
    Public Address As String
    Public Phone As String
    Public EmergencyContactName As String
    Public EmergencyContactAddress As String
    Public EmergencyContactPhone As String
  End Class

End Namespace

Remarks

The ProfileProviderAttribute class is used to identify the profile provider for a property of a custom profile implementation. A custom profile implementation is a class that inherits from the ProfileBase abstract class and defines properties for the user profile that are not specified in the profile configuration element.
