Manage ASP.NET 2.0 Profiles with ease - Introducing FlimFlan ProfileView Control

Written on January 10, 2006

A few days ago I stumbled across Scott Guthrie's blog posting "Cool ProfileView Control" where he promoted Joshua Flanagan's ProfileView ASP.NET 2.0 web control which allows logged in users to view and edit their (ASP.NET 2.0 Membership) Profiles.

Since I didn't find a demo page or a screenshot of this pretty cool ASP.NET 2.0 control, I've compiled a small sample Application (click here for download) that shows ProfileView in action:


Register your user with Profile Information using standard ASP.NET 2.0 controls


Watch and modify your Profile with ProfileView after Login


Watch your updated Profile in readonly mode of ProfileView

To get the sample Project working, you have to setup a ASP.NET Membership and Profile enabled database and you have to modify the connectionstring in the web.config to point to this database.
