Create User Wizard and Profiles

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Good Morning.

I am developing a site that uses the CreateUserWizard to allow a User to create a new account.  This account is not authorized until I approve it and therefore does not automatically log the user in at that point, but there are two steps to the Wizard.  The first step requests the standard account information: Username, Password, Confirm Password, EMail, Security Question and Security Answer.  The second step asks for personal information common to a GuestBook or Forum: First Name, Last Name, Home Town, Home State, Website Address, and Signature.  Upon completion, it sends an EMail to the new User with their information.

On ActiveStepChanged, we determine if we are on the Completed step and then perform some additional functions, such as adding the User to the Members Role.  It then gets the personal information from the TextBoxes in Step Two and saves them to variables.  A Profile is created using the ProfileCommon.Create Function and the appropriate values are stored in the Profile.  The Profile is then saved.

The final step, and I haven't been able to determine where exactly this occurs in the process, is that an EMail is sent to the new User with their information using the SendingMail Event.  In this event, I get the Username from the CreateUserWizard and load the MembershipUser.&nb

	for (var i=0; i<inputs.length; i++){
		// test to see if the hint span exists first
		if (inputs[i].parentNode.getElementsByTagName("span")[0]) {
			// the span exists!  on focus, show the hint
			inputs[i].onfocus = function () {
				this.parentNode.getElementsByTagName("span")[0].style.display = "inline";
			// when the cursor moves away from the field, hide the hint
			inputs[i].onblur = function () {
				this.parentNode.getElementsByTagName("span")[0].style.display = "none";

Collecting extra information using Create User Wizard

 I am trying to collect extra information about a user when the user account is created using the Create User Wizard. This info will be stored in a new table in the standard ASP membership SQL database. I have read several books and loads of online tutorials on the subject and they all take different approaches and seem to make the process hard work. Is there any reason why I can't add an SQL datasource and a number of textboxes  to the wizard step, 'connect' the values from the textboxes to the Insert Parameters and then put an Insert Statement in a suitable event handler to cause the insert? If this is possible what would be the best (ie simplest) way to 'connect' the textboxes to the insert parameters?   Regards Andy

Trying to Create New user with Create User Wizard and getting name already exists! ??

hi, I am using a create User Wizard for registering a user and have converted it to a  a template to capture additional information.  In the CreatedUserEvent handler in Code Behind I  am getting the UserName of the new user and their unique GUID key. This is then added to a seperate data table with addditional info captured from the user. The textboxes within the create user Wizard have validation controls. If the user has missed an entry these fire and it shops the process of creating the user. BUT  If I then complete the textboxes and then click submit it says the USER NAME already Exists! This is not what I want as the User just needs to correct the errors in the form and they should be able to keep their iniital User Name choice. Do I need to change the Event handler and if so am I still able to capture the USerName and Key so that I can add the data to the other non membership table. any examples / advice most helpful thanks   P

error message customization in create user wizard, change password wizard


Hi All,

Create User Wiard and Change Password Wizard contain error message literals. They display error messages when a user is trying to sign up with an username that already exists and so on.

These error messages are pre-set. How can they be customized. In particular, how can they be adjusted depending on the language.

How is this usually best achieved?

Thanks a lot.


inserting data to Users Table in ASPNETDB from Create User Wizard


When a user starts a membership using the Create User wizard supplied by the aspnetdb profile service, I need to add a field to a table in aspnetdb and upon clicking the ContinueButtonClick insert some data.  The field I'll add is "SubscId".  My first question is what table is best for this - Users or Membership?

Secondly, what is the best way to insert new data for this scenario?  code behind?  markup?  Can someone provide basic syntax of insert code in code behind for this scenario?

Create User Wizard with Captcha


Hi ,

I am using create user wizard, I want before creating user it should be verified with Captcha. I downloaded plugin from captcha's website & it works all fine without Create User Wizard. What I want is when user enter standard values like user name, password, email, security question & answer, then it should also verify captcha image on same page. I added captcha control on createuser wizard by Customizing create user step. Now my Create user wizard is having 7 fields viz 1. user name, 2. password 3.confirm password, 4. Email 5. Security Question 6. Answer & 7. Captcha control. First 6 fields are validated by ASP.NET & for validating Captcha image. Page.IsValid method is required. I written this method in my code behind (C#) but I dont know how to call this method for verification. I tried  OnCreatedUser but it wont work neither OnCreatingUser. Please suggest how can I call method for to check Page.IsValid or not using Create User Wizard.

Below is the method I want to call before creating user  :  

 protected void Submit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

if (Page.IsValid) {

Label1.Text = "Success";

How do we create new User Profile Synchronization connection so that we can import profiles from AD

We have a requirement to authenticate users against Active Directory LDS in our SP 2010 farm and also import their profiles in user profile store. We are able to setup FBA using AD membership provider to authenticate against AD LDS.

I am interested in importing the users in AD LDS to SharePoint user profile store. 

When I try to create a new connection the options that I am provided are 
1. Active Directory
2. Active Directory Logon Data
3. Active Directory Resource.
4.SunOne (LDAP) 5.2
5.Novell eDirectory (LDAP) 8.7.3
6.IBM Tivoli (LDAP) 6.2

If I select any of the options 1/2/3 I am asked to provide Forest Name and Domain Controller name. Since this is AD LDS there is no Forest or Domain Controller. It’s just a generic LDAP server.  

So the question I am struggling with  is: what are the steps required to create a User Profile Synchronization connection to import users from AD LDS and not from AD DS? 

We are not able to find any information how to do that in SP2010… From other blog entries I am assuming it was supported and documented for MOSS2007.

There is NO “LDAP Directory” connection type in SP2010.

I am wondering if this is supported in SP2010.
