Examples

This example demonstrates how to specify values declaratively for several attributes of the membership section, which can also be accessed as members of the MembershipSection class.

The following configuration file example shows how to specify values declaratively for the membership section.

<system.web>  
  <membership   
    defaultProvider="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider"  
    userIsOnlineTimeWindow="15">  
    <providers>  
      <add   
        name=" AspNetSqlMembershipProvider"  
        type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider, System.Web,   
          Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral,   
          PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"  
        connectionStringName="LocalSqlServer"  
        passwordAttemptThreshold="5"  
        passwordAttemptWindow="10"  
        enablePasswordRetrieval="false"  
        enablePasswordReset="true"  
        requiresQuestionAndAnswer="true"  
        applicationName="/"  
        requiresUniqueEmail="false"  
        passwordFormat="Hashed"  
        description="Stores and retrieves membership data from   
          the local Microsoft SQL Server database."  
      />  
    </providers>  
  </membership>  
</system.web>  

The following code example demonstrates how to use the MembershipSection class.
