IAuthenticationModule.AuthenticationType Property

Gets the authentication type provided by this authentication module.

[Visual Basic]
ReadOnly Property AuthenticationType As String
[C#]
string AuthenticationType {get;}
[C++]
__property String* get_AuthenticationType();
[JScript]
function get AuthenticationType() : String;

Property Value

A string indicating the authentication type provided by this authentication module.

Remarks

The AuthenticationType property identifies the authentication type implemented by this authentication module. The AuthenticationType property is used by the AuthenticationManager.Register method to determine if the authentication module has been registered, and by the AuthenticationManager.Unregister method to remove a registered authentication module.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example shows how to use the AuthenticationType property. For a complete example refer to the AuthenticationManager class.

[Visual Basic] 
Private m_authenticationType As String
Private m_canPreAuthenticate As Boolean


' The CustomBasic constructor initializes the properties of the customized 
' authentication.
Public Sub New()
  m_authenticationType = "Basic"
  m_canPreAuthenticate = False
End Sub 'New

' Define the authentication type. This type is then used to identify this
' custom authentication module. The default is set to Basic.

Public ReadOnly Property AuthenticationType() As String _
 Implements IAuthenticationModule.AuthenticationType

  Get
    Return m_authenticationType
  End Get
End Property

' Define the pre-authentication capabilities for the module. The default is set
' to false.

Public ReadOnly Property CanPreAuthenticate() As Boolean _
 Implements IAuthenticationModule.CanPreAuthenticate


  Get
    Return m_canPreAuthenticate
  End Get
End Property


[C#] 
private string m_authenticationType ;
private bool m_canPreAuthenticate ;

// The CustomBasic constructor initializes the properties of the customized 
// authentication.
public CustomBasic()
{
  m_authenticationType = "Basic";
  m_canPreAuthenticate = false;
}

// Define the authentication type. This type is then used to identify this
// custom authentication module. The default is set to Basic.
public string AuthenticationType
{
  get
  {
    return m_authenticationType;
  }
}

// Define the pre-authentication capabilities for the module. The default is set
// to false.
public bool CanPreAuthenticate
{
  get
  {
    return m_canPreAuthenticate;
  }
}

[C++] 
private:
   String* m_authenticationType;
   bool m_canPreAuthenticate;

   // The CustomBasic constructor initializes the properties of the customized
   // authentication.
public:
   CustomBasic() {
      m_authenticationType = S"Basic";
      m_canPreAuthenticate = false;
   }

   // Define the authentication type. This type is then used to identify this
   // custom authentication module. The default is set to Basic.
   __property String* get_AuthenticationType() {
      return m_authenticationType;
   }

   // Define the pre-authentication capabilities for the module. The default is set
   // to false.
   __property bool get_CanPreAuthenticate() {
      return m_canPreAuthenticate;
   }
