    Create Member Groups/Types & Properties Programatically

    I have the need to create a specific Member Group/Type programatically and then add specific properties to it, this is for a package I'm creating and will be done via a usercontrol.

    Anyone know of a package that does this?  So I can check out how they went about it, or if you have done it a snippet example of code would be really helpful :)

    For anyone interested, heres how I did - This basically creates a membertype and group with an alias of 'ForumUser', adds a tab called 'Content' to the member type and adds three properties to the Member type (1 x Textstring, 2 x Numeric)

                const string memberTypeAlias = "ForumUser";
                const string memberTypeName = "Forum User";
                const string memberTabName = "Content";
                const int textStringId = -88;
                const int numericId = -51;
                const string forumUserTwitterUrl = "forumUserTwitterUrl";
                const string forumUserPosts = "forumUserPosts";
                const string forumUserKarma = "forumUserKarma";
    
                // First Create the MemberType
                var mt = CreateMemberType(memberTypeAlias, memberTypeName);
    
                // Now create the tab
                mt.AddVirtualTab(memberTabName);
    
                // Add the properties            
                // 1) forumUserTwitterUrl > textString
                var dt = DataTypeDefinition.GetDataTypeDefinition(textStringId);
                mt.AddPropertyType(dt, forumUserTwitterUrl, "Twitter Username");
                var prop = mt.getPropertyType(forumUserTwitterUrl);
                prop.Mandatory = false;
                prop.TabId = GetTabByCaption(mt, memberTabName).Id;
                prop.Save();
    
                // 2) forumUserPosts > Numeric
                dt = DataTypeDefinition.GetDataTypeDefinition(numericId);
                mt.AddPropertyType(dt, forumUserPosts, "Users Post Amount");
                prop = mt.getPropertyType(forumUserPosts);
                prop.Mandatory = false;
                prop.TabId = GetTabByCaption(mt, memberTabName).Id;
                prop.Save();
    
                // 3) forumUserKarma > Numeric
                dt = DataTypeDefinition.GetDataTypeDefinition(numericId);
                mt.AddPropertyType(dt, forumUserKarma, "Users Karma Amount");
                prop = mt.getPropertyType(forumUserKarma);
                prop.Mandatory = false;
                prop.TabId = GetTabByCaption(mt, memberTabName).Id;
                prop.Save();
    
                // Lastly create the group
                MemberGroup.MakeNew(memberTypeAlias, User.GetUser(0));

    Hope it helps someone :)

    Hi,

    This is just what I was looking for.


    Unfortunatly, I got stuck on the first line of code : CreateMemberType is not recognised ! I'm using Umbraco v6.
    I found out I could replace that line with :

      MemberType mt = MemberType.MakeNew(User.GetUser(0), memberTypeAlias);

    I then got stuck on another unrecognised method GetTabByCaption :
    But it could be replaced with :

      prop.TabId= iTabID;

    Where iTabID is instantiated when creating the new tab like so:

      // Now create the tab
      int iTabID = mt
    .AddVirtualTab(memberTabName);

    Thanks Lee, it did help some1
    Hope it helps some others 2 ...

    Guys,

    I had trouble too. (umbraco 6.2.1) But I finally got it like this:

    Creating the membertype

    public static MemberType CreateSimpleMemberType(string alias = null, string name = null)
            {
               
                var memberType = new MemberType(-1)
                {
                    Alias = alias ?? "simple",
                    Name = name ?? "Simple member",
                    Description = "Some member type",
                    Icon = ".sprTreeDoc3",
                    Thumbnail = "user.png",
                    SortOrder = 1,
                    CreatorId = 0,
                    Trashed = false
                };

                return memberType;
               
            }

     

    Creating Properties in tabs + saving it

    memberType.AddPropertyGroup("customtab");

    var TextBoxDefinition = new DataTypeDefinition(-1, new Guid(Constants.PropertyEditors.Textbox));

    memberType.AddPropertyType(new PropertyType(TextBoxDefinition) { Alias = "alias", Name = "Name", Description = "", Mandatory = false, SortOrder = 1 }, "customtab");

    mts.Save(memberType);

     

    The following functions couldnt be found (dont know whats going on here)

    dt =DataTypeDefinition.GetDataTypeDefinition(numericId);
    var mt =CreateMemberType(memberTypeAlias, memberTypeName);
    mt.AddVirtualTab(memberTabName);

    Anyone know the equivalent of the MemberType in Umbraco 7? Currently using Umbraco.Core.Models, but receive an error getting to the method MakeNew

    MemberType.MakeNew
