TextMode="Password" makes my textboxes go crazy...

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hi!I'm making a simple form to insert new users to my app, and this form has several textboxes for name, email, username, password, etc.No problem here, everything looks and works fine, until i set the password textbox property TextMode="Password". When i do this, every time i run the page the username and password textboxes get yellow and they have the logged on user's username and password :-/Even if i remove the username textbox from the form it will fill another textbox with the same thing :(Can anyone tell me whats wrong?

Adding Dynamic Rows in ASP.NET GridView Control with TextBoxes and with Delete functionality

In my previous examples, I have demonstrated on how to add dynamic rows in GridView control with TextBoxes and how to save the values into the database.

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?

Windows UI: Our WinMgr Sample Makes Custom Window Sizing Simple


Programmers using Visual Basic have always had an advantage over C++ programmers when it comes to component and window sizing. There are many third-party Visual Basic-based solutions to this age-old problem, but unfortunately, there are few elegant alternatives for the C++ crowd, short of using a full-fledged windowing toolkit. This article explains how to circumvent the tedious task of hardcoded pixel arithmetic. It starts by introducing a window sizing rules system, and then moves on to show how CWinMgr, a data-driven class, can intelligently manage an MFC application's window sizing.

I close the IE clear the cache , even restart the machine. When I login always taking me to the password change page.

So, I need your help with this. Please let me know your inputs.


Problem with decrypt password


hello everyone:



I encryped password to the binary variable in sql server with this code:

 DataClasses1DataContext db = new DataClasses1DataContext();
            var info = new passdefine();
            info.username = TextBox1.Text;
            string strcry = TextBox2.Text;
            byte[] bt = new byte[strcry.Length];
            bt = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(strcry);
            RSACryptoServiceProvider RSA1 =new RSACryptoServiceProvider();

            bt = RSA1.Encrypt(bt,false);

            info.password = bt;


And it worked properly but when Want to decrypt it , I get this error:BAD DATA.  

And I use this code:

DataClasses1DataContext db=new DataClasses1DataContext();
            var info = from m in db.passdefines where m.username == TextBox1.Text select m;
            foreach (var item in info)

                byte[] bt = new byte[item.password.length];
                RSACryptoServiceProvider RSA1 = new RSACryptoServiceProvider();
                bt = RSA1.Decrypt(item.password.ToArray(), false);
                string pass = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetString(bt);
