Generate Random Password

12 Aug

Enhancing the same password generation logic so that it would be useful for generating random password using C# code.

Client Side (RandPwd.aspx)

<form id=”form1″ runat=”server”>
<asp:TextBox ID=”TextBox1″ runat=”server”></asp:TextBox>
<asp:Button ID=”rndpwd” runat=”server” Text=”Generate Pwd” onclick=”rndpwd_Click” />
<br />
<asp:Label ID=”Label1″ runat=”server” Text=”Label”></asp:Label>

Server Side

public static string GetRandomPassword(int length)
        char[] chars = "$%#@!*abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz1234567890?;:ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ^&".ToCharArray();
        string password = string.Empty;
        Random random = new Random();

        for (int i = 0; i < length; i++)
            int x = random.Next(1,chars.Length);
            //Don't Allow Repetation of Characters
            if (!password.Contains(chars.GetValue(x).ToString()))
                password += chars.GetValue(x);
        return password;

Display Result of Pwd

protected void rndpwd_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

Its a simple logic instead by generating a random number between 1 and Length of characters. It also checks that same character is not repeated in generated password and finally return the randomly generated password string of desired length.
