status
Type: System.Web.Security.MembershipCreateStatus%

Return Value

Type: System.Web.Security.MembershipUser
A MembershipUser object populated with the information for the newly created user.

Takes, as input, the name of a new user, a password, and an e-mail address and inserts a new user for the application into the data source. The CreateUser method returns a MembershipUser object populated with the information for the newly created user. The CreateUser method also defines an out parameter (in Visual Basic, you can use ByRef) that returns a MembershipCreateStatus value that indicates that the user was successfully created, or a reason that user creation failed.

The CreateUser method raises the ValidatingPassword event, if a MembershipValidatePasswordEventHandler event handler has been specified, and continues or cancels the create-user action based on the results of the event. You can use the OnValidatingPassword virtual method to execute the specified MembershipValidatePasswordEventHandler event handler.
