ChangePasswordForm design mode exception

  • ChangePasswordForm design mode exception
  • Hi,
    After creating a new project, adding a page with a Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Web.UI.ChangePasswordForm control I get a System.IndexOutOfRangeException when trying to edit the page again. When I first added the control, it had the DisplayUserName property in False, but it shows the field anyway.
    I need to provide my Front end users the ability to change their passwords. Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance
  • Hello Pablo,

    Thanks a lot for reporting this issue. To workaround the exception, you could create your own control overriding Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Web.UI.ChangePasswordForm like this:

    using Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Web.UI;
    using System.Web.UI;
    namespace SitefinityWebApp
        public class CustomChangePasswordForm : ChangePasswordForm
            protected override void CreateChildControls()
                var changePasswordContainer = this.FindControl("ChangePasswordContainerID") as ChangePasswordContainer;
                if (changePasswordContainer != null)
                    changePasswordContainer.UserNameTextBox.Visible = this.DisplayUserName;
                    var userNameLabel = changePasswordContainer.FindControl("UserNameLabel");
                    if(userNameLabel != null)
                        userNameLabel.Visible = this.DisplayUserName;
            protected override object SaveViewState()
                object[] objArray = new object[] null, (this.MailDefinition != null) ? ((IStateManager)this.MailDefinition).SaveViewState() : null ;
                for (int i = 0; i < objArray.Length - 1; i++)
                    if (objArray[i] != null)
                        return objArray;
                return null;

    The problem will be fixed in the next release.

    Kind regards,
