public abstract string[] GetAllRoles ();
abstract member GetAllRoles : unit -> string[]
Public MustOverride Function GetAllRoles () As String()

Returns

Examples

The following code example shows a sample implementation of the GetAllRoles method.

public override string[] GetAllRoles()
{
  string tmpRoleNames = "";

  OdbcConnection conn = new OdbcConnection(connectionString);
  OdbcCommand cmd = new OdbcCommand("SELECT Rolename FROM Roles "  +
                                    " WHERE ApplicationName = ?", conn);

  cmd.Parameters.Add("@ApplicationName", OdbcType.VarChar, 255).Value = ApplicationName;

  OdbcDataReader reader = null;

  try
  {
    conn.Open();

    reader = cmd.ExecuteReader();

    while (reader.Read())
    {
      tmpRoleNames += reader.GetString(0) + ",";
    }
  }
  catch (OdbcException)
  {
    // Handle exception.
  }
  finally
  {
    if (reader != null) { reader.Close(); }
    conn.Close();      
  }

  if (tmpRoleNames.Length > 0)
  {
    // Remove trailing comma.
    tmpRoleNames = tmpRoleNames.Substring(0, tmpRoleNames.Length - 1);
    return tmpRoleNames.Split(',');
  }

  return new string[0];
}
Public Overrides Function GetAllRoles() As String()
    Dim tmpRoleNames As String = ""

    Dim conn As OdbcConnection = New OdbcConnection(connectionString)
    Dim cmd As OdbcCommand = New OdbcCommand("SELECT Rolename FROM Roles " & _
                                             " WHERE ApplicationName = ?", conn)

    cmd.Parameters.Add("@ApplicationName", OdbcType.VarChar, 255).Value = ApplicationName

    Dim reader As OdbcDataReader = Nothing

    Try
        conn.Open()

        reader = cmd.ExecuteReader()

        Do While reader.Read()
            tmpRoleNames &= reader.GetString(0) & ","
        Loop
    Catch e As OdbcException
        ' Handle exception.
    Finally
        If Not reader Is Nothing Then reader.Close()
        conn.Close()
    End Try

    If tmpRoleNames.Length > 0 Then
        ' Remove trailing comma.
        tmpRoleNames = tmpRoleNames.Substring(0, tmpRoleNames.Length - 1)
        Return tmpRoleNames.Split(CChar(","))
    End If

    Return New String() {}
End Function

Remarks

GetAllRoles is called by the GetAllRoles method of the Roles class to retrieve a list of role names from the data source. Only the roles for the specified ApplicationName are retrieved.

If no roles exist for the configured applicationName, we recommend that your provider return a string array with no elements.
