How can i call Membership.GetAllUsers but only get users within a specified role.

I'm aware of Roles.GetUsersInRole("Comgem") however this doesnt return the membersip columns i'm looking for.

Is this possible, while maintaining the same results set returned by GetAllusers?

Thanks

No single step way to do it:
The MembershipUser itself has no knowledge of what roles a user belongs to, that has to be queried from the RoleProvider as you've shown.

But, if you can use linq, a pretty easy to query the objects to get what you're after:
var members = from m in Membership.GetAllUsers().OfType<MembershipUser>()
                join u in Roles.GetUsersInRole("Comgem") on m.UserName equals u
                select m;

Note though, that depending on what provider you're using, and how many users you have vs how many are in the target role, there's a really good chance you'd get better performance by calling GetUsersInRole by itself, and then for each one returning the Membership.GetUser("").

var members = Roles.GetUsersInRole("Comgem").Select(u => Membership.GetUser(u));
