Hi Rick,

In the authenticate method there is this little code block:

TRY  
   *** New feature so bracket  
   THIS.oUser.Validate = ""  
CATCH  
ENDTRY  

What is the intended use of this?

It's already in use and used for email validation. Until the email is validated that field will have an id in it and until the user matches that ID on the form link that is sent to them, the account is inactive.

It's a flag in the UserSecurity configuration whether that's enabled or not.

Ah. I get it now. My little brain was confused why setting a property to a null string could cause an exception and thought there was some other hidden magic.
