User Registration Scenario (VB)

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net




Hi, This is my first post.  

I'm a newbie to ASP.NET and I've got a number of fairly complicated situations that I need to deal with.  The first situation is how to deal with Custom User Registration using Membership Roles.  


Currently, My site uses membership roles, and when the user logs into the site, they are redirected to a secure subfolder that provides them with links of programs they can register for.  


So, with my limited knowledge of coding - I understand there is a session or viewstate variable that is or could be used when the user is logged into the site.  I would like to be able to use their username or userID variable when they register for a new program in their user control panel.  I don't know how to call that variable or how to insert it.  I'm pretty smart, so if someone could give me some direction, I'd be able to figure the rest out.  

Is it possible to customize the createUserWizard control to populate a new user registration into the membership fields and then using additional steps following user creation, populate another table?  Or can I use the wizrd to cr

User Registration, Model Validation


Hello everyone -

I'm working on my first real MVC application using ADO.NET Entity Data Model and am looking for some advice. I'm starting off with creating a registration page that will accept the following data:

  • Username
  • Email
  • Password
  • Password Confirmation
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Job Title
  • Organization

Per my database design, I have two separate models to use here: User and Profile. I'm using MetaData partial classes to add Data Annotations, for obvious reasons. My ViewModel looks like so:

    Public Class RegistrationViewModel
        Public Property User() As User
                Return _user
            End Get
            Set(ByVal value As User)
                _user = value
            End Set
        End Property
        Private _user As User

        Public Property ConfirmPassword() As String
                Return _confirmPassword
            End Get
            Set(ByVal value As String)
                _confirmPassword = value
            End Set
        End Property

        Private _confirmPassword As String

        Public Property Profile() As Profile
                Return _profile
            End Get
            Set(ByVal value As Profile)
                _profile = valu

User registration error


I have a web application that allows users to register with the website. I have used the default membership provider and I have enabled roles. I also used the default login page but I have added an extra step into it. I want the user to select whether they are a player or a coach.

Can anyone tell me why this code isn't working?

DropDownList role = (DropDownList)MemberType.ContentTemplateContainer.FindControl("DropDownList1"); string Role; Role = role.SelectedValue; if (Role=="Coach") { Roles.AddUserToRole(RegisterUser.UserName, "Coach"); Roles.AddUserToRole(RegisterUser.UserName, "Player"); } else { Roles.AddUserToRole(RegisterUser.UserName, Role); }

My dropdownlist's ID is 'DropDownList1' 

This is my html stuff:

<%@ Page Title="Register" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Site.master" AutoEventWireup="true"
    CodeFile="Register.aspx.cs" Inherits="Account_Register" %>

<asp:Content ID="HeaderContent" runat="server" ContentPlaceHolderID="HeadContent">
<asp:Content ID="BodyContent" runat="server" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent">
    <asp:CreateUserWizard ID="RegisterUser" runa

MS SQL Server: Disconnect Users From Database - Kill User Session

Choosing Between a User Control or Web Part for SharePoint

SharePoint will only display Web Parts on a page. However, there are publicly available shims that allow you to write user controls and have them be displayed as a Web Part. From SharePoint's point of view, the shim is a Web Part. From the point of view of the user control, the shim is simply a control in .NET that is including the user control

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

How to track the changes of user contacts(colleagues) by using SharePoint API

We might have seen colleague tracker web part which keep tracks the changes made in our contacts/colleagues details like profile/lists/sites. The same tracking mechanism can be implemented by using MOSS API in any custom web part/ web control/ feature/web service...

UserProfile.GetColleagueChanges is the method which returns all changes happened with the contacts, this method also accepts a Query (UserProfileChangeQuery) where we can specify different parameters to filter the changes

User Defined Functions in Microsoft SQL Server

User Defined Functions are compact pieces of Transact SQL code, which can accept parameters, and return either a value, or a table. They are saved as individual work units, and are created using standard SQL commands. Data transformation and reference value retrieval are common uses for functions. LEFT, the built in function for getting the left part of a string, and GETDATE, used for obtaining the current date and time, are two examples of function use. User Defined Functions enable the developer or DBA to create functions of their own, and save them inside SQL Server.

Building Re-Usable ASP.NET User Control and Page Libraries with VS 2008


I am having problems with a user control. I want my solution to have a separate project for holding my user controls.

The main project can get a reference to this user control project and can import this user control dll into my main project.

Multiple Instances of User Control

How to let user edit selected gridview columns, not entire row

how to get an array of all the asp.net textbox control inside create user wizard control?



How can I get all the textboxes inside a create user wizard control using getElementsByTagName().

Below is my JQuery code:

<script type="text/javascript">
        function addLoadEvent(func) {
            var oldonload = window.onload;
            if (typeof window.onload != 'function') {
                window.onload = func;
            } else {
                window.onload = function() {

        function prepareInputsForHints() {
            var inputs = document.getElementsByTagName("asp:TextBox");
            for (var i = 0; i < inputs.length; i++) {
                inputs[i].onfocus = function() {
                    this.parentNode.getElementsByTagName("span")[0].style.display = "inline";
                inputs[i].onblur = function() {
                    this.parentNode.getElementsByTagName("span")[0].style.display = "none";

UI Datepicker and web user controls



I have developed an application using the Master-Detail pattern described in this Matt Berseth article.

The only difference between Matt's article and me is that I am using a FormView object in place of a DetailsView.

Everything works fine except that the formview object, in my case it's inside a user control and I can't figure out how to use the jquery datepicker UI plugin.

I have tried to put the script block for the datepicker either in the aspx page as well as inside the user control but in both cases the calendar does not come up when the related textbox get the focus.

Any suggestion on how to work with the datepicker inside an ascx?

thanks in advance!
