      • authenticate

        void authenticate​(AuthenticationEvent event)
        This method is called when a page is navigated to that requires authentication.

        Setting both the event's user and password fields causes these values to be used as credentials for authentication. Leaving one or both of these fields as null indicates that credentials are not known, so an authentication prompter should be shown to the user. Otherwise, setting the event's doit field to false cancels the authentication challenge, and the page will not be loaded.

        The following fields in the AuthenticationEvent apply:

        • (in) widget the Browser that is attempting to show the page that requires authentication
        • (in) location the location issuing the authentication challenge
        • (in/out) doit can be set to false to cancel the authentication challenge
        • (out) user the user name to authenticate with
        • (out) password the password to authenticate with
        Parameters:
        event - the AuthenticationEvent that can be used to either supply authentication credentials, defer credential input to an authentication prompter, or cancel an authentication challenge.
