• Question

  • Hi all, i have been working on a default theme which i wanted to add the capability of changing password in forms authentication. I wanted to reuse the default change password dialog which i have managed to show using the code below:

                <DefaultShell:CurrentUserComboBox x:Name="CurrUser" ShellHelpers:ComponentViewModelService.ViewModelName="Default.CurrentUserViewModel" Grid.Column="2">
                    <ComboBoxItem Name="sdr" Content="{Binding CurrentUserDisplayName, Converter={StaticResource CurrentUserConverter}}" IsSelected="True"/>
                    <Button Content="Change password" Click="ChangePwd_Click" BorderThickness="0" Opacity="100"/>

    I am looking for a way to access loged in user, and change the password when the user presses  'ok' on the change password dialog.

    Any help will be much appreciated

  • Hi Kilonzo,

    According to your description, you want to implement change password for current loged in user, is it right?

    Please refer to below thread which is similiar with your requirement. Hope it can help you.

  • Yea, it is changing password for the current user. In this case, i have developed a custom shell. There is the CurrentUserComboBox that you use on the standard shell to change password for currently logged in user. I want to use the same combobox in my application. As you see from the code above, i have managed to show it up in the application. The problem is that when i input new password and press ok, nothing happens. I need to know how to implement that code on the shell level.

  • Hi Kilonzo,

    Could you please share a sample project about how do you implement the function of change password in your project? I think there may be something wrong with your code-behind of button.

    First, we need to get current user with below code.

    IUser user = this.Application.User;

    Then you can get the user login information from database and modify it based on your requirement.

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Weiwei,

    Sorry I was away yesterday. Below is the code for calling the changepasswordBox:

            private void ChangePwd_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
                ChangePasswordDialog ChangePWD = new ChangePasswordDialog();

    Inthe shell, i have added the place for change password button which is inside the combobox. The button's code is the one listed above.

    Then, below is the default dialog which opens when you click on the Change password button above:

    Change password dialog

    As you can see, the dialog is the Standard shell dialog for changing the password. 

    I only managed to show the dialog, but not changing the user's password. Remember that this is done on the shell level

  • I think you should share a sample project which can help us debug your code and find out the problem quickly.
