public TableItemStyle ErrorMessageStyle { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.TableItemStyle

A TableItemStyle containing the style properties that define the appearance of error messages on the control. The default is null.

Use the ErrorMessageStyle property to change the appearance of error messages that are displayed when the membership provider fails to create a new user account. By default, the ErrorMessageStyle is set to display the following messages in red:

The ErrorMessageStyle property is read-only; however, you can set the properties of the TableItemStyle object it returns. You can set these properties declaratively in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty represents a property of the TableItemStyle class (for example, ErrorMessageStyle-ForeColor). You can set the property programmatically in the form Property.Subproperty (for example, ErrorMessageStyle.ForeColor).

Common settings include custom background color, text color, and font properties. The style settings for the ErrorMessageStyle property are merged with the style settings for the CreateUserWizard control. Any settings that are applied in the ErrorMessageStyle property override the corresponding settings in the properties of the CreateUserWizard control.

The following CreateUserWizard style properties are overridden by ErrorMessageStyle settings:

However, when you use templates to define the appearance of the CreateUserWizard control, the ErrorMessageStyle property has no effect.
