A collection of objects that inherit the System.Web.Profile.ProfileProvider abstract class.
See Also: ProfileProviderCollection Members
The profile providers for an application are exposed as a read-only System.Web.Profile.ProfileProviderCollection through the ProfileManager.Providers property of the System.Web.Profile.ProfileManager class. You can access a specific profile provider in the collection by name and cast it as the specific provider type, such as System.Web.Profile.SqlProfileProvider. This enables you to manage user profile properties from multiple data stores in a single application. It also allows you to access members of a specific profile provider that are not members of the System.Web.Profile.ProfileProvider abstract class.
