CreateUserWizard.RequireEmail Property


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

Gets or sets a value indicating whether an e-mail address is required for the Web site user.

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

public virtual bool RequireEmail { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if an e-mail address is required; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

When the RequireEmail property is true, the CreateUserWizard will display a text box and an associated label for the user to enter an e-mail address. If the user does not enter an e-mail address, the EmailRequiredErrorMessage property will display an error message.

If the RequireEmail property is set to true and you are using templated content, the Email control is required and the CreateUserWizard throws an exception if the Email control is not found or is of the wrong type. If RequireEmail is set to false, no exception is thrown if the Email is not found. If it is of the wrong type, it is ignored.


If the membership provider specified in the MembershipProvider property requires a unique e-mail address for new users, you must set the RequireEmail property to true so that the UI for entering an e-mail address is displayed. Otherwise, the user will see the EmailRequiredErrorMessage but have no way to enter an e-mail address.

This property cannot be set by themes or style sheet themes. For more information, see ThemeableAttribute and ASP.NET Themes and Skins.
