Public MustOverride Function GetPassword (username As String, answer As String) As String
The user to retrieve the password for.
The password answer for the user.
The password for the specified user name.
Takes, as input, a user name and a password answer and retrieves the password for that user from the data source and returns the password as a string.
GetPassword also checks the value of the RequiresQuestionAndAnswer property. If RequiresQuestionAndAnswer is
true, GetPassword checks the value of the supplied answer parameter against the stored password answer in the data source. If they do not match, a MembershipPasswordException exception is thrown.
If your custom membership provider supports hashed passwords, the GetPassword method should throw an exception if the EnablePasswordRetrieval property is set to
true and the password format is set to
Hashed. Hashed passwords cannot be retrieved.
