Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.LoginFailureAction
One of the LoginFailureAction enumeration values. The default is Refresh.


The selected value is not one of the LoginFailureAction enumeration values.

The FailureAction property defines the behavior of the Login control when the user does not successfully log in to the Web site.

The default behavior reloads the page and displays the contents of the FailureText property to alert the user that the login attempt failed.

When FailureAction is set to RedirectToLoginPage, the user is redirected to the login page defined in the Web.config file.

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

The following code example shows how to set the FailureAction property both declaratively and in code.
