WebSecurity - CreateUserAndAccount()
The CreateUserAndAccount() method creates a new account in the user database, using user name and password, and optionally lets you specify if the user must explicitly confirm the account.
C# and VB Syntax
|userName||String||The user name|
|password||String||The user password|
|propertyValues||Object||A dictionary that contains additional user attributes|
|requireConfirmation||Boolean||true if the account must be confirmed using the token return value, default is false.|
|String||A token that can be sent to the user to confirm the account.|
The CreateUserAndAccount() method creates a new entry in the user profile table and then a corresponding entry in the membership table in the WebSecurity database.
You can pass true for requireConfirmationToken parameter to require that the user account must be confirmed by the user. To confirm the account, you get the token as the return value from the CreateUserAndAccount() method.
If you are manually maintaining the user profile table and only want to create a membership table entry for the user, call the CreateAccount() method instead.
