Given the database schema below which is my linq dbml model

I need to assign a role to the user partial class.   So I want to say something like

user.rolename  = "temp Role"

I need to implement it like this.....



   public static User TempUser
        {
            get
            {
                return new User() { userName = "Temp",  RoleName = "temp role"  };
            }
        }

How can I do this?
USER
UserID           Int
RoleID           Int
Username         varchar(100)



ROLES
RoleID           int
RoleName         varchar(100)

Hi ToString1;

Don't understand the question, in the below statement User does not have a property name.

user.rolename  = "temp Role"

Do you want an object that contains all User properties as well as rolename returned from a query?

public class UserRole
{
    public int UserID            { get; set; }
    public int RoleID             { get; set; }
    public string Username   { get; set; }
    public string Rolename   { get; set; }
}

Hi

I am implementing custom principle object and want to assign a user a role of "temp role".  

The USER object is related to the ROLES object via roleID

if you look at the code snippet below, in other code I am calling the static property TempUser and assigning it a roleID but I want to check against the role name like this

 bool isAuthenticated = !(userRole.roleName == TempUser.RoleName);
public static User TempUser
        {
            get
            {
                return new User() { userName = "Temp", roleID = (int)UserRoles.TempRole};
            }
        }

 
        #region IPrincipal Members

        public IIdentity Identity
        {
            get
            {
                bool isAuthenticated = !(userRole.roleName == TempUser.userName);
                return new Identity(isAuthenticated, this.userName);
            }
        }

May be this is what you are looking for.

bool isAuthenticated = !(userRole.roleName == TempUser.ROLES.RoleName);
