I have tried to use HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name to get window user account. However, from debugger, for a long time ago I saw my window user name. But now, I did not see my window user name (from debugger) with the same code and same function call.
Please help. Was I doing something wrong? Or any special settings on web.config/machine.config or project to make it work??? I'm stuck
Thanks a lot

I am using Membership Services in my new ASP.NET 3.5 app. I want to redirect the user to a page where he can enter various personal details if he has not yet done this.

Hi friends, I am creating an application that takes current logged in user and displays on the page itself. for this I am getting the user name in PageLoad function by using this.User.Identity.Name and then storing the value in a hidden variable for aspx page.

As part of my rollout of DNN 3.0, I'd like to change the default naming for the super user accounts. Specifically the admin & host user names. In addition, once these are renamed, is it possible to add in a "banned list" of user names? I.e. I don't want someone to come along and create an account called host or admin/administrator.
sadly, you can't change usernames (this is a limitation of the microsoft memberrole functionality - see http://www.asp.net/Forums/ShowPost.aspx?tabindex=1&PostID=815100 for some more details). You can however uncheck the Aut...removing domain name in Context.User.Identity.Name

I want to compare a user's name and email that he/she has entered. If it is correct I want to send an email to the Admin to let them know that they need their password reset. I have the following but for some reason it keeps hitting the else statement:

I am trying to convert my aspx page that has all my graphics into a header user control, in the page I reference the username that is logged into the site. I am using the User.Identity.Name function but it tells me that User is not identifited. This worked just fine before I moved it to the ascx page.
Anyone have any ideas?
