The user name to search for.


The index of the page of results to return. pageIndex is zero-based.


The size of the page of results to return.


The total number of matched users.


A MembershipUserCollection collection that contains a page of pageSizeMembershipUser objects beginning at the page specified by pageIndex.


For an example of a MembershipProvider implementation, see Implementing a Profile Provider.


FindUsersByName returns a list of membership users where the user name matches the supplied usernameToMatch for the configured ApplicationName property. If your data source supports additional search capabilities, such as wildcard characters, you can provide more extensive search capabilities for user names.

The results returned by FindUsersByName are constrained by the pageIndex and pageSize parameters. The pageSize parameter identifies the number of MembershipUser objects to return in the MembershipUserCollection collection. The pageIndex parameter identifies which page of results to return, where 0 identifies the first page. The totalRecords parameter is an out parameter that is set to the total number of membership users that matched the usernameToMatch value. For example, if 13 users were found where usernameToMatch matched part of or the entire user name, and the pageIndex value was 1 with a pageSize of 5, then the MembershipUserCollection would contain the sixth through the tenth users returned. totalRecords would be set to 13.
