Event Data

The EncryptedFilePasswordCheckFailed event's data class is EncryptedFilePasswordCheckFailedEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
DocumentName Gets the encrypted document’s name.
Error Obtains the error type caused the event to raise.
Handled Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the event handler has completely handled the event or whether the system should continue its own processing. Inherited from HandledEventArgs.
TryAgain Gets or sets whether to prompt with a password again.

Remarks

Hanlde the EncryptedFilePasswordCheckFailed event to determine the password error (PasswordRequired or RichEditDecryptionError.WrongPassword), and specify whether to enable a new password request (TryAgain).

If the TryAgain property is set to true, the RichEditControl.EncryptedFilePasswordRequested event occurs. The RichEditControl.InvalidFormatException event fires when the TryAgain property is not specifies or set to false.

    {
        tryCount--;
