Using LoginError with C# & .NET

All,

I am successfully trapping log-in errors in my application BUT, I want
to know what KIND of login error it is. I specifically want to trap
Incorrect Password errors to watch for possible intrusion attempts.

I am using the System.Web.UI.WebControls.Login component and have the
LoginError event going to method linMain_LoginError. Execution
successfully goes there but how do I determine whether it is there due
to an Incorrect Password?

Anyone???

TIA

After a cup of coffee and a short conversation with our resident
c++/Microsoft expert I continued searching & discovered the following
page:

The solution is a little more obscure & a little less obvious that I
was hoping, but it will do. If anyone has a more elegant solution,
PLEASE post it. Here's what I want to do in sort-of pseudo-code...

// in the linMain_LoginError method - bound to the LoginError event

if (isUserLocked)
{
if (OKToUnlockNow)
{ UnlockAndContinue() }
}
else
{
if (incorrectPassword)
{
incorrectPasswordCount ++
if (incorrectPasswordCount >= badPasswordLimit)
{
LockUserAccount()
}
}
}
