    Guys, do you know how to get the user information for the logged in user?
    I am writing some controls where i need this information, and cannot find a way to get it easily.

    Thanks so much

    Others search this stuff...can you either provide a link to what you're referring to or delete it? It's a waste to get this result.

    Hi Tamish,

    You can get Membership data for the currently logged in user as shown below

    MembershipUser user = Membership.GetUser(UserManager.GetCurrentUserName());

    UserManager.GetCurrentUserName() returns the name of the current user, so you could pass it to ProfileBase in case you need to get profile data.

    All the best,
    Ivan Dimitrov
