How would I add a user to a role in asp.net? (c#)

I'm trying to add a user to a row with the role manager but can't get it to work.  I would like the admin to be able to add role to users as needed.  I can't figure the code out.

this is what I have.  I have a gridview with the name of the user in it, when they click the button it put the user name in a label that i would like to use to assign the row to with my dorpdownlist of Roles.


Membership.ApplicationName = AppName.Text.ToString();
Roles.AddUsersToRole(selUser.Text, atRole.Text);

Great question! The most simple answer is to use the Web Site Administration Tool ASP.Net provides: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/yy40ytx0(v=vs.100).aspx

After getting intitial testing out of the way, you undoubtedly will want to do this programmically. You can do this by calling Membership.CreateUser() as follows:

   
Membership.CreateUser( 
       model.UserName,  
       model.Password,  
       model.Email,  
       null,  
       null,  
       model.IsApproved, 
       out createStatus);
