Control Display Names - Web.Config

I am developing an application which displays the Name of the user. The name information is coming either from windows logon account or from MS outlook. My job is to display the name of the user as First Name, Last Name format or Last Name, First Name format. The application should pick one of the formats based on the WEB.Config settings.

If you got any suggestions please share with me...

In your web.config add something like: 
from your page read the setting with say: 
string nameFormat = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["NameFormat"];
now depending on the value of nameFormat display the name as needed.

string displayName = "";
if (nameFormat == "Last") 
  displayName = lastName + firstName;

 displayName = firstName + lastName ;

[PATCH lib/Net/, MANIFEST, t/lib/Mock/, lib/Net/Config.t] Add Tests for Net::Config
Here's a test suite for Net::Config. In the process of writing this, I've fixed an apparent bug that prevented single values from becoming array references when necessary. I think it's right, but perhaps Graham should weigh in on this. In the process, with some advice from perl-qa, I've added a mock object so the test could control the output of Socket::inet_ntoa() and Socket::inet_aton(). t/lib/Mock/ seemed like as good a place as any. I'm happy to rework this patch if it personally offends anyone whose opinion matters. :) -- c --- lib/Net/ S...

UserName Control does not display user name
Hi, What settings in IIS will enable authenticated user info? I was installing membership authentication on my site and everything seemed to be working correctly. I could use the LoginStatus, UserName and ChangePassword controls. Then I must have changed some setting because now they don't work. So, I stripped the site down to 2 pages  a login page with the login control and a secure page with a LoginStatus and UserName control. I am able to log in with a user name and password and get directed to the secure page but it still displays "login" and does not display username. ...

The LoginName control doesnt display the logged in name!

Name (control name) is not declared.
I get an error with every control I put in an ASP.NET page and try to reference in the code-behind file, that says "Name (name of control) is not declared.", even though the control is properly referenced with the correct name which I named it in the .aspx file. What is the deal? Does VS2005 Express not explicitly declare web controls in the code-behind file? If you add a control to your page and it has the runat attribute set to server, you can reference to it with the name you have specified for its ID attribute./Fredrik Normén - fredrikn @ twitterMicrosoft MVP, MCSD, MCAD,...
