ChangePassword.PasswordHintText Property

Gets or sets informational text about the requirements for creating a password for the Web site.

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

public virtual string PasswordHintText { get; set; }
<asp:ChangePassword PasswordHintText="String" />

Property Value

Type: System.String
The informational text to display about the criteria for the new password. The default is Empty.

The PasswordHintText property gets or sets informational text about the requirements for creating a password for the Web site. Use this property to describe the requirements for the new password that are specified in the NewPasswordRegularExpression property.

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.

The following code example shows how to set the NewPasswordRegularExpression property to define a regular expression that checks passwords to ensure that they meet the following criteria:

  • Are greater than six characters.

  • Contain at least one digit.

  • Contain at least one special (non-alphanumeric) character.

The password requirements contained in the PasswordHintText property are displayed to the user.

If the password entered by the user does not meet the criteria, the text contained in the NewPasswordRegularExpressionErrorMessage property is displayed to the user. If a new password is not entered, the text contained in the NewPasswordRequiredErrorMessage property is displayed to the user.

NoteNote

The new password must also meet the minimum requirements set by the membership provider in the MinRequiredPasswordLength, MinRequiredNonAlphanumericCharacters, and PasswordStrengthRegularExpression properties. If the password does not meet these requirements, the ChangePasswordError event is raised.
