New User Profile

Oct 1, 2008 at 2:59 PM
When I open up the portal with a new Active Directory user, it automatically creates a new user entry in the membership database.  But the Profile.UserName property is formatted and stored as DOMAINNAME/short_user_name, and it is this name that is displayed at the top of the portal header. 

Can I modify the Profile property values prior to the call to Profile.Save()?  I'm most interested in setting the UserName and FullName properties.  I've looked at the UserProfile.cs in the AppCode folder, but I only see methods for IsFirstVisit and FullName, but modifying FullName in this code does not seem to work.
