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

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

Property Value

Type: System.String
The message displayed when the password retrieval question is not valid. The default is "Please enter a valid answer." The default text for the control is localized based on the server's current locale.

The Membership class membership provider specified in the MembershipProvider property can restrict the password retrieval questions that it will accept. The InvalidQuestionErrorMessage property is displayed when the question entered by the user does not meet the requirements for the question set by the membership provider. The actual requirements for the question are determined by the membership provider, and might be different for different providers.

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 changes the InvalidQuestionErrorMessage property for a membership provider that restricts questions to the alphanumeric characters a-z, A-Z, and 0-9. The actual membership provider is not shown.
