CreateUserWizard.SendingMail Event

Note: This event is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Occurs before the user is sent an e-mail confirmation that an account has been created.

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

public event MailMessageEventHandler SendingMail
/** @event */
public void add_SendingMail (MailMessageEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_SendingMail (MailMessageEventHandler value)

JScript supports the use of events, but not the declaration of new ones.

The CreateUserWizard class will send an e-mail message confirming that a new Web site account has been created when the MailDefinition property defines an e-mail message to send.

Because the e-mail message only has automatic replacement fields for the user name and password fields, you can use the SendingMail event to modify the e-mail message before it is sent to the new user.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example uses the SendingMail event to modify the e-mail message that is sent to new users. This example requires a text file named MailFile.txt that contains the following text.

Your account was set up on our Web site with the following:

    Username:   <%UserName%>

To reset your password, you must answer the following question:

    Password Question: <%PasswordQuestion%>  
    Password Answer:   <%PasswordAnswer%>  
Thank you for creating an account with our Web site.
