Property Value

The anonymous identifier for the user.

You can use the AnonymousID property to set the anonymous identifier to a custom value during the AnonymousIdentification_Creating event. If you do not specify a value for the AnonymousID property during the AnonymousIdentification_Creating event, a Guid is used.

The AnonymousIdentification_Creating event is only raised when the anonymous identification is Enabled.

The following code example uses the AnonymousIdentification_Creating event to set the anonymous identifier to a custom value.

public void AnonymousIdentification_Creating(object sender, 
                                             AnonymousIdentificationEventArgs args)
  args.AnonymousID = Samples.AspNet.Security.MyIdClass.GetAnonymousId();
