    Within a web part, I need to hide a particular control from certain users. We
    have set up groups within sharepoint to determine if a user should see this

    I was using the following code to do that:

    SPSite site = SPControl.GetContextSite(Context);
    SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb();
    SPUser user = web.CurrentUser;
    //we did not make cross site groups. we do not have multiple sites.
    SPRoleCollection groupRole = user.Roles;
    Hashtable rolesForUser = new Hashtable();

    foreach(SPRole role in groupRole)
       rolesForUser.Add(role.Name, user.Name);

    This works but only if the user is part of the Admin group along with their
    other group memberships. How can I do the same thing and not make everyone
    admin? I prefer not to use impersonation.

    Thanks for your help
