Membership::CreateUser Method (String, String, String)

Adds a new user with a specified e-mail address to the data store.

Namespace:  System.Web.Security
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
public:
static MembershipUser^ CreateUser(
	String^ username, 
	String^ password, 
	String^ email
)

Parameters

username
Type: System::String
The user name for the new user.
password
Type: System::String
The password for the new user.
email
Type: System::String
The e-mail address for the new user.

Return Value

Type: System.Web.Security::MembershipUser
A MembershipUser object for the newly created user.
ExceptionCondition
MembershipCreateUserException

The user was not created. Check the StatusCode property for a MembershipCreateStatus value.

CreateUser adds a new user to the data store and returns a MembershipUser object for the newly created user. If the user creation fails, a MembershipCreateUserException is thrown. You can retrieve a MembershipCreateStatus value from the StatusCode property of the MembershipCreateUserException that indicates why user creation failed.

Once a membership user has been created and you have a reference to a MembershipUser object for that user, you can modify the settings for that user with the MembershipUser public methods, such as ChangePasswordQuestionAndAnswer for applications where RequiresQuestionAndAnswer is true, or by setting the property values of the MembershipUser object and passing them to the UpdateUser method.

If a user already exists in the data source for the application, you can obtain a MembershipUser object for the existing user with the GetUser method.

Leading and trailing spaces are trimmed from all parameter values.

The following code example creates a new user for an ASP.NET application configured to use forms authentication and ASP.NET membership. If the user is not created successfully, a message is displayed to the user. Otherwise, the user is redirected to the login page for the application.

This example contains a text box that accepts user input, which is a potential security threat. By default, ASP.NET Web pages validate that user input does not include script or HTML elements. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview.
