The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Gets or sets the message that is displayed when the new password and the duplicate password entered by the user are not identical.

Namespace:   System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public virtual string ConfirmPasswordCompareErrorMessage { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

The error message displayed when the new password and confirmed password are not identical. The default is "The confirm New Password entry must match the New Password entry."

The ChangePassword control requires the user to enter the new password twice because the password characters are masked on the screen as the user types them. If the user does not enter the same password in both the New Password text box and the Confirm New Password text box, the message in the ConfirmPasswordCompareErrorMessage property is displayed.

The value of this property, when set, can be saved automatically to a resource file by using a designer tool. For more information, see LocalizableAttribute and ASP.NET Globalization and Localization.
