Examples

The following example shows an event handler that passes UserName and Password values to a custom membership provider to validate the user credentials. The event handler sets Authenticated to the return value of the ValidateUser method and sets AuthenticationIsComplete to true so that the AuthenticationService class does not validate the credentials.

void AuthenticationService_Authenticating(object sender, System.Web.ApplicationServices.AuthenticatingEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.UserName.IndexOf("@contoso.com") >= 0)
    {
        e.Authenticated = Membership.Providers["ContosoSqlProvider"].ValidateUser(e.UserName, e.Password);
    }
    else if (e.UserName.IndexOf("@fabrikam.com") >= 0)
    {
        e.Authenticated = Membership.Providers["FabrikamSqlProvider"].ValidateUser(e.UserName, e.Password);
    }
    else
    {
        e.Authenticated = Membership.Provider.ValidateUser(e.UserName, e.Password);
    }
    e.AuthenticationIsComplete = true;
}
Sub AuthenticationService_Authenticating _
   (ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As System.Web.ApplicationServices.AuthenticatingEventArgs)
    
    If (e.Username.IndexOf("@contoso.com") >= 0) Then
        e.Authenticated = Membership.Providers("ContosoSqlProvider").ValidateUser(e.Username, e.Password)
    ElseIf (e.Username.IndexOf("@fabrikam.com") >= 0) Then
        e.Authenticated = Membership.Providers("FabrikamSqlProvider").ValidateUser(e.Username, e.Password)
    Else
        e.Authenticated = Membership.Provider.ValidateUser(e.Username, e.Password)
    End If
    e.AuthenticationIsComplete = True
End Sub

Remarks

You use the Password property to retrieve the password during the Authenticating event.
