Public Event Creating As AnonymousIdentificationEventHandler

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 Sub AnonymousIdentification_Creating(sender As Object,  _
                                            args As AnonymousIdentificationEventArgs)
  args.AnonymousID = Samples.AspNet.Security.MyIdClass.GetAnonymousId()
  Samples.AspNet.Security.MyIdClass.LogAnonymousId(args.AnonymousId)
End Sub
