PasswordRecovery.OnSendingMail Method

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

Raises the SendingMail event.

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

protected virtual void OnSendingMail (
	MailMessageEventArgs e
)
protected void OnSendingMail (
	MailMessageEventArgs e
)
protected function OnSendingMail (
	e : MailMessageEventArgs
)

Parameters

e

A MailMessageEventArgs that contains the event data.

The OnSendingMail method is called after the membership provider has verified that the user is a valid member of the Web site and before the recovered or new password is e-mailed to the user. The default implementation raises the SendingMail event.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Events and Delegates.

The OnSendingMail method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors When overriding OnSendingMail in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnSendingMail method so that registered delegates receive the event.

The following code example creates a custom PasswordRecovery control that implements the OnSendingMail method to set properties of the MailDefinition property before sending a new password to a Web site user.

<%@ page language="C#" %>
<%@ Import namespace="Samples.AspNet.CS.Controls" %>

<script runat="server">

  void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e)
  {
    PasswordRecoveryOnBeforeSendingEmail passwordRecoveryControl = 
      new PasswordRecoveryOnBeforeSendingEmail();

    passwordRecoveryControl.ID = "passwordRecoveryControl";
    passwordRecoveryControl.MailDefinition.From = "userAdmin@your.site.name.here";
    PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(passwordRecoveryControl);

  }
</script>
