  • Hi,

    Below code help you to accomplish your task

    string groupName = "Site Visitors";

    SPUser userName = SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser;

    string strconcat=string.Empty;

    using (SPSite spSite = new SPSite("http://sp/"))


     using (SPWeb spWeb = spSite.OpenWeb())


        SPUser user = spWeb.EnsureUser(userName.LoginName);

        strconcat = "<html><a href="+""+">First</a>";

        if (user.Groups.Cast<SPGroup>().Any(g => g.Name.Equals(groupName)))


          strconcat+="</br></br><a href="+""+">Second</a>";


        strconcat += "</html>";

        links.InnerHtml = strconcat;

  • Hi,

    According to your description, you want to hide specific content in a web part for a specific user.

    We can do it in two steps as below:

    1. Get the information of the current logged in user;

    2. Hide controls or content accordingly.

    Here is a link with code demo about how to get information of current login user:

    More information about SPUser object:

  • You have custom web part, so I believe you achieve this requirement with lot of option.
    Already 2 peoples provide you different approaches.
    One more option is you can manage permission in
    list (List Item level permission). Based on access to list item you can fetch
    data and display in your web part.

  • If the links are in your custom webpart, you cannot use out of box audience targeting to hide or show a link based on the user. Obviously you need to write your own custom code for that.

    You can get the current user details inside SharePoint web part using SPContext class


    Based on this object you can hide or show a link in your web part
