public MembershipCreateUserException(
	MembershipCreateStatus statusCode


Type: System.Web.Security.MembershipCreateStatus

A MembershipCreateStatus enumeration value that describes the reason for the exception.

The MembershipCreateUserException class is thrown by the Membership.CreateUser method when the user is not created.

The statusCode parameter enables you to indicate why the MembershipCreateUserException was thrown. The statusCode parameter value is exposed by the StatusCode property.

The following code example calls the CreateUser method to create a new membership user. If the user creation fails, a MembershipCreateUserException is thrown with the StatusCode returned by the CreateUser method.

public MembershipUser MyCreateUser(string username, string password, string email,
                                   string question, string answer)
  MembershipCreateStatus status;

  MembershipUser u = Membership.CreateUser(username, password, email, question, 
                                           answer, true, out status);

  if (u == null)
    throw new MembershipCreateUserException(status);

  return u;
