You don't have to do anything to web.config to get your custom MembershipUser class to work.  You do, however, have to modify the MembershipProvider.  If you don't already have a custom MembershipProvider, you have to start there.  If you do, take a look at this article from MS regarding implementing custom MembershipUsers: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms366730.aspx

If you need to do a custom MembershipProvider, there are a ton of tutorials out there, but here's one that I used when I started implementing my custom MP: http://www.devx.com/asp/Article/29256/0/page/

actually you have to set your Custom provider as the default provider for the application
   
<membership defaultProvider="CustomMembershipUser" >
      <providers>
     <clear />
        <add name="CustomMembershipUser"
          type="CustomMembershipUser" />
      </providers>
    </membership>

Right, but he hasn't created a membership provider, he's only created a membership user.  I probably should have been more specific - you don't have to do anything to web.config assuming you've already got your provider configured properly.  I don't believe you can set a MembershipUser class as a membership provider...

Yes, I have the custom provider in the web.config, I just want to clarify some things after looking at that example.

In the link you gave me, the GetUser references the MembershipUser...

Public Overrides Function GetUser(ByVal username As String, _
                                  ByVal userIsOnline As Boolean) As MembershipUser

Then it knows my custom user exists, because I name it here, but I don't inherit, import or implement it in anyway?

Dim u As OdbcMembershipUser = Nothing

which I'm assuming that means it now says, there is my class, set this "u" as my custom class.

Then in the example, the GetUser method it calls:

u = GetUserFromReader(reader)

And in the GetUserFromReader it does this....

            Dim u As MembershipUser = New MembershipUser(Me.Name, _
                                                  username, _
                                                  providerUserKey, _
                                                  email, _
                                                  passwordQuestion, _
                                                  comment, _
                                                  isApproved, _
                                                  isLockedOut, _
                                                  creationDate, _
                                                  lastLoginDate, _
                                                  lastActivityDate, _
                                                  lastPasswordChangedDate, _
                                                  lastLockedOutDate)


If I refer back to the custom user code... there is a:

Public Sub New(ByVal providername As String,

but I have also seen it written in other examples as....

Public Sub New(ByVal membershipProvider As MembershipProvider,...

which should it be... String or MembershipProvider?

Okay, those things should probably clarify it for me.

thanks!

I'm not sure I entirely understand your questions, but...The only place you have to do inheriting is in the actual class for the custom user, like you showed in your initial post.  Get user, when it returns u, is just returning your custom user as an object.  ProviderName as String should be fine.  If I haven't answered your questions could you please clarify?
