Issue with Remember Me on User Login control


Hi everyone,

     I hope you can help me, I tried Google, but none of the solutions worked. Using VB.net and Membership, I have a login control in my master page with a remember me check box. When I check this box and login, some pages indicate that I am not logged in. If I go to another page, it will then indicate that I am still logged in. I have isolated one page that always indicates I am not logged in the first time I visit it, but if log in a second time and then go to it, it will finally recognize me as a user that is properly logged in. 

Some pages that this occurs on is in the top level, some pages are in a sub folder.

My MasterPage has the following Form Code:

<body bgcolor="#E0ECF9" topmargin="0" leftmargin="0">

    <form id="form1" runat="server">

My Aspx file has a troubleshooting label, several Gridviews and several DetailViews:

    <asp:Label ID="lblErRep" runat="server" Text=""></asp:Label>

My aspx.vb file has 1 line of code (Protec

"Remember Me Next Time" under Login Control is not working

I am using VS 2005 and created a Login control. Login control provides "Remember Me Next Time" check box, I check this box but it does not remember next time. I have following entry in the web.config file <authentication mode="Forms"> <forms name=".MyCookies" loginUrl="login.aspx" protection="All" timeout="5000000" cookieless="UseCookies" slidingExpiration="true" path="\"></forms> </authentication> What am I missing?

"Remember me" cookie not saved properly


Hello, everybody.
I have several sites that are diffierentiated like below:

Another site ( site B ) is like this: www.ab.siteName.cd.domainName.com/br

windows 7/vista unable to remember

I don't know if this is the right place for the question. It's related to sharepoint.. but the problem (i think) lies in the client side.
We've got a problem with remembering credentials on a network drive to a sharepoint portal. A client vista or W7 computer maps z: to a sharepoint portal for easy access to a document library. Everything works, but after every reboot the client has to reenter the password. The client os displays the password in the vault. But is doesn't remember the password for the mapping. adding ip, dns name etc to trusted or intranet zones didn't work. setting the security in the GPO Network security: LAN Manager authentication level to "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated" didn't work either.

Is there something I'm missing here?

Remember me next time doesn't work


In the login control, the "Remember me next time" checkbox does not appear to work.

If I check it when logging in, when I log in the next time, even a minute later, I go to the login page again.

It seems the cookie is not being written to the client.  Can't find it anywhere.

My web.config contains:

    <authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms slidingExpiration="true" timeout="525600"/>

Your help would be much appreciated (any code snippets preferably in VB, please).

Thanking you in anticipation.




Need to identify if Remember Me was set or not



I am using Form Based Authentication in my application. I am using standard method to create FormsAuthentication cookie using

FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie('username', boolRememberMe)

FormsAuthenticationTicket ticket = new FormsAuthenticationTicket(1,

                   username, DateTime.Now, DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(60),
                   remember, UserObject.Entity.UserName);

When clicked on particular URL, i need to pass whether user has checked REMEMBER ME CHECKBOX while logging in. How can I determine this using FOrmsAuthentication mechanism?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Designer does not remember my settings, for ex., I want to always load xaml into xaml (code) view, n


I am using VS 2010 Ultimate.  It is not remembering my setup when opening .xaml files.  It is very annonying.  I  am pretty sure VS remembers things like that.

I prefer to load my .xaml file to see the code only.  So I usually minimize the design tab.  However, I have to do this every time I open a .xaml file.

I am getting the feeling this setting is stored at the .sln level, which is even more annonying, it should be global setting for all VS sessions.

Any advice?

Accordion Control in MasterPage does not remember its SelectedIndex


Hey guys, I hope anybody out there could help me!

I've been Googling for so long now and I cannot find a straight answer or correct solution to my problem (especially when I'm a novice at JavaScript/C#!).

I have got an Accordion Control on my MasterPage which acts as a menu. My problem is that when I click on a button within the content pane it displays a new page within the ContentPlaceHolder, but the Accordion resets itself back to SelectedIndex = 0. How can I keep the SelectedIndex = 1 open when I'm response.redirected to another page?

I have heard about sessions but I can't make any sense of them. Any suggestions or solutions would be great!

Many thanks.

How to remember the selection checked/unchecked ToolStripMenuItem next time when user opens the appl


I have a menu item "Run at Windows Startup" on a form. It is checked by default. When its state is checked I create a shortcut file so it can start automatically when windows starts. And if its unchecked I delete the shortcut file so that it wont start. This function is written on the application's exit button.

But then, if user start the application manually from the start menu, as the "Run at Windows Startup" item is checked by default user has to uncheck it everytime s/he exits from the application.

So my questions, is there any easy way to remember this selection so user don't have to uncheck it each time s/he exits.

Remember me and timeout help


I'm using forms security and have it set up like this"

		<authentication mode="Forms">
			<forms name="footballmn" cookieless="UseCookies" timeout="500000" protection="Encryption"/>

When I don't check remember me the cookie is set to expire when the browser closes, when I do check remember me the cookie is set to expire in a couple years.

I can then close my browser and go to the site without having to log in, but will be required to log in after 30 minutes.  What am I doing wrong?

<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms name="footballmn" cookieless="UseCookies" timeout="500000" protection="Encryption"/>

How to Encrypt and Decrypt a Password using SQLSERVER 2005?(Video)

Encypt and Decrypt a Password using SQLSERVER 2005(Video)

symmetric key protected by a password

An alternative could be using a symmetric key protected by a password, as long as your application generates the CREATE SYMMETRIC KEY and OPEN SYMMETRIC KEY statements directly instead of calling them inside a SP (otherwise the password will still be passed as a parameter, and will be in clear in the profiler).

Use Membership but bypass / disable password usage for users


I have an application that does LDAP authentication. The authentication is done on the code behind page of my Login.aspx page. Once the user passes LDAP authentication, a cookie is set and I redirect:

FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(UserName.Text, False)

I would like to setup membership in my application and keep track of some user information. But due to company security requirements, I cannot store user passwords on my application. That must stay on the LDAP server only.

Is there a way to store users but disable password storage on the aspnet_membership table?
