Get EMail from AspNetUser

I have a asp.net Web application (web forms), for which I am tryig to retreieve the currently logged in users email address from the database.

I've added the field to my IdentityModel as such:

  public class ApplicationUser : IdentityUser
    {
        public string Email { get; set; }

        public ApplicationUser()
        {
            
        }
    }

Open in new window


But, whenever I try and obtain this informaiton, using the ApplicationUser, I'm not seeing it

User not showing Email field.
What am I missing, in order to see this value?

Hi,

try this

if (user != null)
{
    email = user.Email;
}

Open in new window


Or if you are using memberShip

var user = Membership.GetUser(User.Identity.Name);
var email = null;

if (user != null)
{
    email = user.Email;
}

Open in new window
