Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint
Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)


Public ReadOnly Property Users As SPUserCollection
Dim instance As SPWeb
Dim value As SPUserCollection

public SPUserCollection Users { get; }

Property value

Type: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPUserCollection
An SPUserCollection object that represents the users.


The following code example uses the Users property to return the collection of users in a specified website of the current site collection.

This example requires using directives (Imports in Microsoft Visual Basic) for the Microsoft.SharePoint and Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities namespaces.

Using webSite As SPWeb = SPContext.Current.Site.OpenWeb("Website_URL")
    Dim users As SPUserCollection = webSite.Users
    Dim user As SPUser
    For Each user In users
        Response.Write((SPEncode.HtmlEncode(user.Name) + "<BR>"))
End Using
using (SPWeb oWebsite = SPContext.Current.Site.OpenWeb("Website_URL"))
    SPUserCollection collUsers = oWebsite.Users;
    foreach (SPUser oUser in collUsers)
        Response.Write(SPEncode.HtmlEncode(oUser.Name) + "<BR>");


Certain objects implement the IDisposable interface, and you must avoid retaining these objects in memory after they are no longer needed. For information about good coding practices, see Disposing Objects.
