AnonymousIdentificationModule.Creating Event

Occurs when a new anonymous identifier is created.

Namespace: System.Web.Security
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public event AnonymousIdentificationEventHandler Creating
/** @event */
public void add_Creating (AnonymousIdentificationEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_Creating (AnonymousIdentificationEventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

The Creating event is raised during the PostAuthenticateRequest event.

You can access the Creating event of the AnonymousIdentificationModule class by specifying a subroutine named AnonymousIdentification_Creating in the Global.asax file for your ASP.NET application.

You can use the AnonymousId property of the AnonymousIdentificationEventArgs object supplied to the AnonymousIdentification_Creating event to set the anonymous identifier to a custom value. 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();
  Samples.AspNet.Security.MyIdClass.LogAnonymousId(args.AnonymousID);
}
