Remarks

The LastActivityDate for a user is updated to the current date and time by the CreateUser and ValidateUser methods, and can be updated by some overloads of the GetUser method. You can use the UpdateUser method to set the LastActivityDate property to a specific date and time.

The LastActivityDate is used to determine whether a user is online. A user is considered online if the current date and time minus the UserIsOnlineTimeWindow property value is earlier than the LastActivityDate for the user.

The SqlMembershipProvider sets the CreationDate, LastLoginDate, LastActivityDate, and LastPasswordChangedDate date to the same date and time when a membership user is created by the CreateUser method.

Note

The LastActivityDate for a user is updated by the classes in the System.Web.Profile and the System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts namespaces whenever user data is retrieved from or set at the data source. If your application uses the same data source to store user information, and your ProfileProvider and PersonalizationProvider are configured with the same applicationName as your MembershipProvider, then the LastActivityDate and IsOnline properties of the user will reflect this behavior.
