    I am setting up a custom Membership Provider inheriting from
    SQLMembershipProvider. I overrode the ChangePassword method in my provider
    and first checks for password re-use. If I simply return False from my
    ChangePassword method, the ChangePassword control displays the standard
    ChangePasswordFailureText error message. I'm trying display a custom error
    message when a password was already used.

    Hi Brett,

    You will have to change the ChangePasswordFailureText error message.

    Something like this? (Note the PassAlreadyInUse is a boolean you set on the
    inherited SQLMembershipProvider)

    protected void ChangePassword1_ChangePasswordError(object sender, EventArgs
    if (mySQLMembershipProvider.PassAlreadyInUse)
    ChangePassword1.ChangePasswordFailureText = "Password already in use";
