Setting DestinationPageURL in runtime for login control

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I have a master page which has login view control for login. I display the same login control for two different internal pages login. I want to set destination page url in the run time immediately after user is authenticated something like below.

 if (MyUrl.AbsolutePath.ToUpper() == "url1")

                login.DestinationPageUrl = "destinationurl1";
                login.DestinationPageUrl = "destinationurl2";

but i am getting error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." for the login control when i tried using the above code in loginbutton click event.

Please let me know where i can implement this code or is there any other easy way to implement this. I am using sql membership roles and users to login. Same user can have both the roles so that i am verifying the url instead of checking the user in role to navigate.

Thanks in advance.

How to modify the login control



I'd like to record more information than the default control allows as well as perform actions with the input when the form is submitted but I'm having trouble figuring out how.

So firstly, if I want to record the middlename for example, how would I do that, and by default, where would it go if anywhere?
When the form is submitted, I'd like to take specific input, such as just the middlename for example, and write some linq to sql code to specify when and how it's stored.
In what event would I put this code?


Customize failure text for login control


Hi all,

I would like to show the failure text in a client-side alert box for login control in c#. Please help me if there is an easy way to convert it from vb.net to c#.net. Thanks a lot!

Protected Sub Login1_LoginError(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Login1.LoginError
'Display the failure message in a client-side alert box
ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType(), "LoginError", _
String.Format("alert('{0}');", Login1.FailureText.Replace("'", "\'")), True)

 End Sub

 Converted, but it doesn't work.

protected void Login1_LoginError(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    //Display the failure message in a client-side alert box
    ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "LoginError", string.Format("alert('{0}');", Login1.FailureText.Replace("'", "\\'")), true);

Login control is suddenly broken in IE7 but works perfectly on Firefox (It works on both browsers lo


Hey Guys,

 I'm new around and I thought this is probably the best place to help me solve my dilemma, I am developing a website for almost a year now and the login control was implemented a logn time ago, however all of a sudden it will not authenticate on Internet Explorer 7 when the application is published, it doesn't even provide a message that authentication was unseccssful or throws any error, it just refreshes the same page. however this problem doesn't occure when I try the same website on FireFox 2.0...Also when I run the page locally on Cassini it work great on both browsers...This is one of the weirdest errors I have ever faced. what could have gone wrong on the server side to cause this? knowing nothing changed on the server-side...I'll provide a snapshot of the login control below

<asp:Login ID="LoginControl" runat="server" BackColor="Trans

I spent the last few weeks getting a client site up and running, but all the while I was doing all my testing with Firefox.

Any ideas?

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

Login Control

Hello everybody. I am new in ASP.NET and currently working on my first web application. It is my college project. This is basically an online leave application. Which consists various label, text field etc. Now I am thinking to do this job by the following procedure. Suppose in the time of the recruitment, an organization will give a username (it may be the name of the employee) and a defined password. Now that user should logged-in to fill up his/her leave application from designed web site. When the user logged in the leave application form will be filled up by his/her name, designation etc. And there will be other things also. My team and I will submit the project along with arbitrary examples of employee. So basically what I have to do is to implement a login control with database. I want to know how I can do this job. I don't need any code. Only information/idea/any useful link will be very helpful to me. Thank you.

Creating a volume control slider/setting one template property based on another

So, what I want to do, is to make a volume control that looks like a right angle triangle with the 90 degree angle on the bottom right, and then when you click on it, the area to the left of the selected point is shown in a different color.  In other words, I've created a slider with the right background, what I can't do, is work out how to show the selected area by filling in the triangle.  I have worked out how to bind the height of my triangle on the left to the value of the control, but right now, the rate of rise is exactly half of what I need it to be.  I need to know how to change the template for the area to the left of the selection ( which is the repeat button ) so that the background is twice the height that it is right now.  No matter what size I make the slider, the area is always 1/2 the size it needs to be, so I am sure if I could get it to double inside my template, it would work fine. <ResourceDictionary xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"     xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml">       <Style x:Key="SliderButtonStyle" TargetType="{x:Type RepeatButton}">         <Setter Property="SnapsToDevicePixels" Value="true"/>         <

Problems with a .NET4 Control GAC Reference failing at runtime but fine during debugging

I believe this question is specific to the CLR how ever I will test this in a Forms Application later. I have multiple .Net 4 Targeted WPF Applications that Reference Non Microsoft .NET 4 WPF Controls that I can confirm are in the GAC. Everything Debugs Great (Noting that none of the references are copied to the output directory) and Install's well using a Setup Package and manually installing has the same effect even after a reboot. The problem is the application will not start even as an administrator as it does not find the Control References in the GAC. This also happens if I try to start the application manually in the visual studio output Directory. I can also confirm that opening the application in reflector that reflector is able to correctly find the references. Finally if I copy the controls (.dll's) to the location of the application everything runs as expected for all the above issues.   My question here is why is my application not able to load the .NET 4 controls from the GAC? Also note that everything uses a Strong Name.
