PasswordRecovery.MembershipProvider Property

Gets or sets the membership provider used to look up user information.

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

[ThemeableAttribute(false)]
public virtual string MembershipProvider { get; set; }
<asp:PasswordRecovery MembershipProvider="String" />

Property Value

Type: System.String
The membership provider used to look up user information. The default value is Empty.

The MembershipProvider property identifies the membership provider used to verify user information entered in the PasswordRecovery control.

Membership providers are defined in the Web.config file in the <membership> section.

Setting the MembershipProvider property will change the provider used. If you do not set the MembershipProvider property, it will always return Empty.

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

The following code example uses the VerifyingUser event to change the MembershipProvider property.

Security noteSecurity Note:

This example contains a text box that accepts user input, which is a potential security threat. By default, ASP.NET Web pages validate that user input does not include script or HTML elements. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview.
