Edit Custom User Properties Programmatically

  Asked By: Srikant    Date: Jun 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2213

For one of the sites we are setting up, we have created custom
properties for the user accounts (e.g., Job Title, Home Phone, etc.).
How does one go about accessing these properties programmatically?
I've tried using the SPUser class but that only seems to give me
access to some basic fields like the email address.

You can get this information using DirectoryServices or the profile database.

Have you tried the Profiles Web Service? Makes it very simple to
programatically grab user  info.

yep, forgot about that. Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal.UserProfiles namespace and UserProfileManager class  should work.
