Hi
I've got a create user wizard control and clicked the option so it writes out the HTML

I've changed the QUESTION text box to a dropdownlist and specified a few questions
However, now it's stopped working (it errors and says: Please enter a different security question")

The i dont have anything in the code behind that relates to the creating the user (that i know of)
so i think its all automated

i did make sure i called the DDL the same name as the Text box
what else do i need to do to get it working?

Do not change that components, If you want to add more than one question, then just add extra page, and pu controls there, and do whatever you want.

Thanks, but it all needs to be on one page (client spec)

just re-read your reply
>If you want to add more than one question.....

I dont want to ask more than one question
I've simply converted the existing question text box to a drop down

i just need to know what code to write and where for it to override the default text box and take the selected text value of the dropdown

thanks

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

DropDownList ddl =
(DropDownList)CreateUserWizard1.CreateUserStep.Con tentTemplateContainer.FindControl("Question");

CreateUserWizard1.Question = ddl.SelectedValue;
