Hi

I've searched Google for this but cant get a definative answer.

Is there a way to check if a logged in user has a profile? or is it OK to try and read a profile and will it just return empty and not error if one is not found.

Hi,

You can do some simple checking like this:
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
            If User.Identity.IsAuthenticated Then
                Dim up As ProfileCommon = Profile.GetProfile(User.Identity.Name)
                If Not up Is Nothing Then
                    lblResult.Text = "User has profile, last updated: " & up.LastUpdatedDate.ToLongDateString()
                Else
                    lblResult.Text = "User profile not created"
                End If
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

Open in new window


If Profile.GetProfile() returns nothing then up should be nothing as well. So simply just do the check and add the needed logic to manage this.
