AuthenticationManager.Register Method

Registers an authentication module with the authentication manager.

[Visual Basic]
Public Shared Sub Register( _
   ByVal authenticationModule As IAuthenticationModule _
)
[C#]
public static void Register(
 IAuthenticationModule authenticationModule
);
[C++]
public: static void Register(
 IAuthenticationModule* authenticationModule
);
[JScript]
public static function Register(
   authenticationModule : IAuthenticationModule
);

Parameters

authenticationModule
The IAuthenticationModule to register with the authentication manager.

Exceptions

Exception Type Condition
ArgumentNullException authenticationModule is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Remarks

The Register method adds authentication modules to the end of the list of modules called by the Authenticate method. Authentication modules are called in the order in which they were added to the list. If a module with the same AuthenticationType is already registered, this method removes the registered module and adds authenticationModule to the end of the list.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example registers an authentication module with the authentication manager. For a complete example, refer to the AuthenticationManager class.

[Visual Basic] 
' This is the program entry point. It allows the user to enter 
' her credentials and the Internet resource (Web page) to access.
' It also unregisters the standard and registers the customized basic 
' authentication.
  Private Overloads Shared Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)

 If args.Length < 4 Then
   showusage()
 Else

   ' Read the user's credentials.
   uri = args(1)
   username = args(2)
   password = args(3)

   If args.Length = 4 Then
     domain = String.Empty
     ' If the domain exists, store it. Usually the domain name
     ' is by default the name of the server hosting the Internet
     ' resource.
   Else
     domain = args(5)
   End If
   ' Unregister the standard Basic authentication module.
   AuthenticationManager.Unregister("Basic")

   ' Instantiate the custom Basic authentication module.
   Dim customBasicModule As New CustomBasic()

   ' Register the custom Basic authentication module.
   AuthenticationManager.Register(customBasicModule)

   ' Display registered Authorization modules.
   displayRegisteredModules()

   ' Read the specified page and display it on the console.
   getPage(uri)
 End If
 Return
  End Sub 'Main
