Hi,
I am trying to access "SPS-hireDate" property from code.

But I can't able to open my webpart because it is showing error.



                         if (userinfo["SPS-HireDate"] != null)
                         {
                             lblOutput.Text += "<tr height='20px'><td style='padding-left:10px;color:#000000;font-weight:bold;font-style:italic;font-size:11px;font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;'>" + userinfo["SPS-HireDate"].ToString() + "</td></tr>";

                         }

The 'SPS-HireDate' field does not exist in UserInfo list.

Use user profiles instead:

ctx = SPServiceContext.GetContext(SPContext.Current.Site);
manager = new UserProfileManager(ctx);
profile = manager.GetUserProfile(web.CurrentUser.LoginName);
Console.WriteLine(profile["SPS-HireDate"].ToString());  // Check for NULL first !
// or, better:
Console.WriteLine(profile[PropertyConstants.HireDate].ToString());  // Check for NULL first !
