PasswordRecovery.UserNameTemplate Property

Gets or sets the template used to display the UserName view of the PasswordRecovery control.

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

abstract UserNameTemplate : ITemplate with get, set
override UserNameTemplate : ITemplate with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.ITemplate
An ITemplate that contains the template for displaying the PasswordRecovery control in UserName view. The default is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The UserNameTemplate property contains the template that defines the appearance of the PasswordRecovery control in UserName view.

The following table lists the required and optional controls used in the UserName view template.

ID or Command name

Control type



Any control that implements IEditableTextControl.



Any control that causes event bubbling.


The Submit control can be any control that causes event bubbling, such as Button, LinkButton, or ImageButton. The control's CommandName property must be set to "Submit".

The PasswordRecovery control throws an HttpException exception if the UserName view does not contain the required controls. No exception is thrown if you give an optional control ID to a control of the wrong type; however, the control is subsequently ignored by the PasswordRecovery control.

When you use a template to define the appearance of the UserName view, only the following properties affect the behavior of the control:

All other properties are inactive when you use a template for the UserName view of the PasswordRecovery control.

The following code example uses the UserNameTemplate property to define a template for the UserName view of the PasswordRecovery control that enables the user to choose the domain that contains his or her login information.
