Getting attributs for membership provider from web.config

N

news.microsoft.com

How can get the values of for example RequiresUniqueEmail from my own
membershipprovider? Using is
System.Web.Security.Membership.RequiresQuestionAndAnswer; is not an option
because it will call the property from the membership provider.

<membership userIsOnlineTimeWindow="15"
defaultProvider="MembershipProviderSample">
<providers>
<add name="MembershipProviderSample"
type="SecurityProviders.MembershipProviderSample" EnablePasswordReset="true"
EnablePasswordRetrieval="true" MaxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5"
MinRequiredNonAlphanumericCharacters="0"
MinRequiredPasswordLength="6"
MembershipPasswordFormat="Clear"
RequiresQuestionAndAnswer="true"
RequiresUniqueEmail="true"
PasswordStrengthRegularExpression="[0-9a-zA-Z]{6,12}$"/>
</providers>
</membership>

Hello news.microsoft.com,

the source looks like this (in the Membership class)

public static bool RequiresQuestionAndAnswer
{
get
{
Membership.Initialize();
return Membership.Provider.RequiresQuestionAndAnswer;
}
}

Initialize loads the configured default provider and assigns the instance
to the Provider property. So - they read the value from the currently loaded
provider implementation - which is your custom provider. You are responsible
in your provider to implement a Initialize method and read the values from
the NameValueCollection (to populate the properties).

so - your scenario should work.

you have to closely follow all the design pattern by microsoft - read more

There is no Membership.Initialize(); atleast not in asp.net 2 but i found a
function Initialize in System.Web.Security.Membership.Provider. The
parameter string name is clear thats te provider name but the other
parameter is what i don't understand.

Hello Roel,

the Initialize method is private in the Membership class

You have to implement the Initialize method in your MembershipProvider derived
class.

The NameValueCollection holds the configuration values from the <membership>
element in web.config, e.g. "RequiresQuestionAndAnwer=true" - you have to
parse the collection to set the internal state in your class and the properties.

as i said - take the time to read the whitepapers i gave you the link to
- without completely understanding the architecture, you won't have much
fun with your provider.
there you will also find the source code of the depracated Access provider
as a template.

When rewritting Initialze you stil need to get that namevaluecollection. If
i have the namevaluecollection i can fix it. But how do i get the
namevaluecollection from the web.config?
I tried to us the ConfigurationManager but that didn't work.
