)

Parameters

The e-mail address to search for.

Return Value

Type: System.String

The user name associated with the specified e-mail address. If no match is found, return null.

Takes, as input, an e-mail address and returns the first user name from the data source where the e-mail address matches the supplied email parameter value.

If no user name is found with a matching e-mail address, null is returned.

If multiple user names are found that match a particular e-mail address, only the first user name found should be returned. You can implement a custom mechanism for ensuring a unique e-mail address for each user name such as the RequiresUniqueEmail property supported by the SqlMembershipProvider provider.

For an example of a MembershipProvider implementation, see Implementing a Profile Provider.
