Login.Password Property

Gets the password entered by the user.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public virtual string Password { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The password entered by the user. The default is null.

The Password property contains the password entered by the user. The password is in clear text. For more information, see Basic Security Practices for Web Applications.

NoteNote

If you manipulate the UserName or Password properties programmatically, it is important to do so at the correct time during the page life cycle. The values of UserName and Password are not available during the Page_Load phase, but are during the Pre_Render phase.

Login control properties represented by text boxes, such as UserName and Password, are accessible during all phases of the page life cycle. The control will pick up any changes made by the end user by means of the TextChanged event triggered by the textboxes.

The following code example passes the Password property to a custom authentication method.

private bool SiteSpecificAuthenticationMethod(string UserName, string Password)
{
    // Insert code that implements a site-specific custom 
    // authentication method here.
    //
    // This example implementation always returns false.
    return false;
}

private void OnAuthenticate(object sender, AuthenticateEventArgs e)
{
    bool Authenticated = false;
    Authenticated = SiteSpecificAuthenticationMethod(Login1.UserName, Login1.Password);

    e.Authenticated = Authenticated;
}

</script>
