EnablePasswordRetrieval Custom MembershipProvider

I have created a custom membership provider. I have EnablePasswordRetrieval set to true in my config. In my custom provider, I have code to retrieve the password.

But now I am using the PasswordRecovery control and I'm not sure what I need to do with it to get it to mail the password to the user.

Is my code supposed to handle the mailing of the password? What happens when they click the button to submit the form?

Also, can that form be altered to enter the email address instead of the user name and look it up by that?

thanks!

The following MSDN pages should give you what you need: -

I'm not sure if you can use the email instead using the stock component, however if you've already the functions to retreive the password, it's not that hard to impliment this from scratch.

Getting a user from the Membership provider, is as follows:-

 MembershipUser UserToRemind = Membership.FindUsersByEmail("email@toMatch.com");

Yes  your code should handle sending the email with the password to the user, after all its your custom provider.
thats being said, the password can not be hashed. simply hashed password will be useless to send to the user since it's not readable
if you inherited from native membership providers, you can use GetPassword to retrieve the password
