When I to add a user to my system using CreateUserWizard, I want the user to be added to the role Administrators I created.

I have it set that the AddUser aspx page can only be accessed by an Administrator so only an administrator can add another administrator.

Any ideas?

This is what you need to do:
In the wzdRegister_CreatedUser method, you add the following code:

(Considering that your CreateWizard control is called wzdRegister)

string[] usernames = new string[1];
usernames[0] = wzdRegister.UserName;
Roles.AddUsersToRole(usernames, "Administrator");

Open in new window

Thanks.That worked. Do you know is it possible to set a user as active or inactive from an aspx page? Try get something similar like in the configuration page under security?
