The OnValidatingPassword virtual method is used during the CreateUser, ChangePassword, and ResetPassword methods to raise the ValidatingPassword event if a MembershipValidatePasswordEventHandler has been specified. The e parameter is used to pass a ValidatePasswordEventArgs object to the MembershipValidatePasswordEventHandler event handler. When the ValidatingPassword event has completed, the properties of the ValidatePasswordEventArgs object supplied as the e parameter can be examined to determine whether the current action should be canceled and if a particular Exception, stored in the FailureInformation property, should be thrown.
