A user control to authenticate users

Hi all

I have a simple user control..with two textboxes(Email and Password) and a button and two links (Forgot your password & To  register click here) ... i'm using windows forms ... when the sign in button is clicked ...i'm trying to validate user credentials against a database..if valid..i instantiate a new principal object ...and place it in the Context.User


string encPassword = new User().Encrypt(txtPassword.Text);

MySitePrincipal newUser = MySitePrincipal.ValidateLogin( txtEmailAddress.Text, encPassword);

if (newUser != null)


Context.User = newUser;




then..i'm calling Response.Redirect(Request.Path) to fire the page_load event of the control again to perform some customization


private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)




MySitePrincipal currentUser = null;

if(Context.User is MySitePrincipal)

currentUser = (MySitePrincipal) Context.User;

if(currentUser != null)



///Not signed in controls/////


lblToRegister.Visible = false;

imgSignIn.Visible = false;

lnkPassword.Visible = false;

lnkRegister.Visible = false;

txtEmailAddress.Visible = false;

txtPassword.Visible = false;

REVEmail.Enabled = false;

REVPassword.Enabled = false;

lblEmail.Visible = false;

lblPassword.Visible = false;

btnSignIn.Visible = false;



///Signed in controls////////


imgWelcome.Visible = true;

btnSignOut.Visible = true;

btnProfile.Visible = true;

lblWelcomeMsg.Visible = true;





///Not signed in controls/////


lblToRegister.Visible = true;

imgSignIn.Visible = true;

lnkPassword.Visible = true;

lnkRegister.Visible = true;

txtEmailAddress.Visible = true;

txtPassword.Visible = true;

REVEmail.Enabled = true;

REVPassword.Enabled = true;

lblEmail.Visible = true;

lblPassword.Visible = true;

btnSignIn.Visible = true;



///Signed in controls////////


imgWelcome.Visible = false;

btnSignOut.Visible = false;

btnProfile.Visible = false;

lblWelcomeMsg.Visible = false;






The problem is that the Context.User is always a GenericPrincipal...although i  replaced it with my own MySitePrincipal after authenticating user...how could i solve this problem??

Thanks in advance

Persisting data in a web user control, which contains a list of other web user controls.
 Hi All, I have a control I've created, which can have a number of child controls - also user controls - stored as an ArrayList, which can be added wither a design time or programmatically.My problem is when I add to the list programmatically, it doesn't persist them. So if I add 3 child controls in step 1 of a wizard, with the aim that those three will be visible inside the parent in step 3, what happens is that the parent has no child controls and the item count is 0.Can anyone help?

Single page with multiple user web controls VS Multiple page with specific user web controls
I have a question regarding single page with multiple user web controls vs multiple page with specific user web controls   Option 1: I am of the opinion to have multiple pages with specific user web controls and use an object to store all the information as the user navigates through the application. And finally at the end, read this object and save all the information to the backend database.   Option 2: My respected team member suggests that we have only one page, with all the specific user web controls and not use an object, instead show/hide the user web controls based ...

Web Form and Web User Control
Hello, I have a Web User Control (ascx) that includes a button. This button has an onclick event method. This Web User control is included into a Web Form. (thru LoadControl). However, when I click on the button, the event method is not executed. What should I include in order it works fine? Thanks in advance. GAA. Using Loadcontrol is using dynamic controls and when using dynamic controls you must recreate the same dynamic controls ono postback to econstruct the page control tree.

UpdatePanel within a web user control resets data of controls outside the user control
Hello, I have a usercontrol on my page which displays a running marquee text. It makes use of an UpdatePanel (within the user control) to refresh the marquee text (within the updatepanel) at periodic intervals. For this I added a timer control and its tick event as an async postback trigger for the UpdatePanel. I have a lot of textboxes and dropdown list boxes (all with runat=server) on the page outside the above user control. These are also contained in different UpdatePanels. Problem is, when the user control does a postback to refresh the marquee text, it causes some of...

I have a web user control being used by another web user control, but the one being used will not display the labels in the resx file.
I am using DotNetNuke version 3.13 (might be 3.013) on a Window's XP machine, SP2. I have what I find to be an extremely odd situation. I have a project called TDS.Controls. This project is a web control library. Each control has its own resx file, which is located in the App_LocalResources directory. Each control inherits from Framework.UserControlBase, just like DotNetNuke's User control in DNN\Controls\User.ascx.vb. As a matter of fact, this control is doing the exact same thing I am trying to do. It is a web user control with its own resx file being used by another web user control (See ...

User Control Within UserControl
If I have a user control A and then inside it a user control B embedded/referenced within it.  User Control A has a panel defined (cpeNewUser) that I want to manipulate from the code behind of User Control B based on some event that happens.So putting this in my code behind of User Control B won't work as it has no idea of cpeNewUser:cpeNewUser.Collapsed = true;So is it because only at runtime they are married up and because of this you cannot access each other's objects at compile time?  How would I get this to work becuase I'm using all user controls inside a AJAX Too...

User Control in a User Control
I have a first user control that contain a second user control. If I cahe the first user control can I still dynamically control the second one or it is cached with the first one therefore can not control it anymore? Thanks When your first control is cached, its rendered out and its output is stored in the cache. On every request to the page containing your control that can satisfy it from cache, the output will just simply be inserted - your first control will never be instantiated or run in that case, so the second one wont be either. Hope this helps,Mike VolodarskyProgram Manager...
