In this article we have shown you how to access the Profile
service configured on the ASP.NET host application from inside the Windows
client application. The Profile objects are loaded as Web user settings into
the Windows client application.
In addition, the article explained in details how to put the
Windows client application to run in the Offline mode and how to move the
application back to the live mode by authenticating the user silently, saving
any offline changes to the Web user settings, and refreshing the Web user
settings from the Profile service.
Finally, a Logout feature was implemented to show you how
easily it is to add a logout button and use the ClientFormsAuthenticationMembershipProvider
to logout the user and save any pending changes on the Web user settings.
This was the last article in the series of articles on the
