Login.LoginError Event

 

Occurs when a login error is detected.

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

public event EventHandler LoginError

The LoginError event is raised when the credentials entered by the user are invalid. You can use the LoginError event to redirect the user to a custom error page, to offer additional help, or to log failed login attempts.

For more information about handling events, see NIB: Consuming Events.

The following code example uses the LoginError event to display Help links to the user when a login attempt fails.
