Create user profiles

The following example describes the creating of a user profile separately from the creating of the user. For more information, see the For developers: Create users example.

In this example, you get the instance of the user that the profile belongs to. To create the profile, you call the CreateProfile method of the manager. Then, you set the desired properties of the profile instance and save the changes.

If you've extended the user profile with additional custom fields, you can also set values for these fields. For more information on adding custom fields, see Overview: Custom fields.

In the following example the user profile has two additional custom fields added:

  • JobTitle
    Short text
  • Age


You can use the DoesFieldExist extension method from the Telerik.Sitefinity.Model namespace to check if the user contains a particular field.
