When overridden in a derived class, returns the number of profiles in which the last activity date occurred on or before the specified date.

 abstract int GetNumberOfInactiveProfiles(System::Web::Profile::ProfileAuthenticationOption authenticationOption, DateTime userInactiveSinceDate);
public abstract int GetNumberOfInactiveProfiles (System.Web.Profile.ProfileAuthenticationOption authenticationOption, DateTime userInactiveSinceDate);
abstract member GetNumberOfInactiveProfiles : System.Web.Profile.ProfileAuthenticationOption * DateTime -> int
Public MustOverride Function GetNumberOfInactiveProfiles (authenticationOption As ProfileAuthenticationOption, userInactiveSinceDate As DateTime) As Integer



One of the ProfileAuthenticationOption values, specifying whether anonymous, authenticated, or both types of profiles are returned.


A DateTime that identifies which user profiles are considered inactive. If the LastActivityDate of a user profile occurs on or before this date and time, the profile is considered inactive.



The number of profiles in which the last activity date occurred on or before the specified date.


The following code example shows the method signature for an implementation of the GetNumberOfInactiveProfiles method. For an example of a full ProfileProvider implementation, see How to: Build and Run the Profile Provider Example.

public override int GetNumberOfInactiveProfiles(
    ProfileAuthenticationOption authenticationOption,
    DateTime userInactiveSinceDate)
    return 0;
Public Overrides Function GetNumberOfInactiveProfiles( _
ByVal authenticationOption As ProfileAuthenticationOption, _
ByVal userInactiveSinceDate As DateTime) As Integer

  Return 0
End Function


The GetNumberOfInactiveProfiles method is used to retrieve a count of all unused user profiles. Only data for the applicationName specified in the configuration file is returned. The authenticationOption parameter specifies whether only anonymous profiles, only authenticated profiles, or all profiles are searched. Of the searched profiles, any profile with a LastActivityDate that occurs on or before the specified userInactiveSinceDate parameter value is counted.
