Help (Password)

Hi,

I am new to MVC  and I am not sure how to do this.

I have a textbox for New password.  the new password should include at least one number,
one Upper case letter, one lower case letter and one special character.

Thank you for helping me.

here's the code

[Required]
[StringLength(100, ErrorMessage = "The {0} must be at least {2} characters long.", MinimumLength = 6)]
[DataType(DataType.Password)]
[Display(Name = "New password")]
public string NewPassword { get; set; }

I believe can be done using a RegularExpression

[RegularExpression(@"(?=\d)(?=[a-z])(?=[A-Z])(?=[\!\@\^\$])^([a-zA-Z0-9\!\@\^\$]{4})$")]
public string NewPassword { get; set; }

BTW, this is the basic idea and it may take some tweaking before getting it right.

Here is what the expression does

(?=\d)         # Lookahead for string that has at least one digit
(?=[a-z])     # Lookahead for string that has at least lowercase letter
(?=[A-Z])
(?=[\!\@\^\$])  # Lookahead for string that has some special char (Add others you want to allow)
^([a-zA-Z0-9\!\@\^\$]+)$ # Finally the pattern to match

The first four lookaheads are used to ensure presence of specified patterns without consuming input. The last part is a simple regular expression.

Hope that helps ..
