type MembershipValidatePasswordEventHandler = delegate of sender:Object * e:ValidatePasswordEventArgs -> unit
The delegate is defined for the ValidatingPassword event for a membership provider. The ValidatingPassword event is raised when the CreateUser method, the ChangePassword method, or the ResetPassword method of a membership provider is called.
You can use the ValidatingPassword event to validate password formats and values for membership users.
If you cancel the current action by setting the Cancel property to true, you can set the FailureInformation property of the supplied ValidatePasswordEventArgs to an exception that describes the reason for the password-validation failure. The calling method will throw the exception that the FailureInformation property is set to. If the FailureInformation property is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the caller will throw a generic password-validation failure exception.
