R – ASP.NET PasswordRecovery Control with Localized content


I am working on a simple portal application using the ASP.NET membership and login controls. I would like to use the PasswordRecovery control to send emails containing forgotten passwords, however my portal requires localization. I have an existing Content Management System that I am pulling the localized strings out of and I would like to link the PasswordRecovery control to that system.

But, it appears that the PasswordRecovery control will ONLY accept a .txt file for the email body…the property is PasswordRecovery1.MailDefinition.BodyFileName

I do not want to use a file on disk, I would like to use the localized content in my CMS.

Is there any way to do this? It occurred to me that I might be able to use the SendingMail event to send my OWN email through the normal System.Net namespace, but that seems sorta cludgy…

Any thoughts?


Best Solution

Try handling the SendingMail event of the PasswordRecovery control. In that event, set the e.Message.Body and e.Message.Subject properties to your localized text.
