Password recovery by entering email not username



I am using the ASP.Net password recovery control.  By default the user needs to enter their username before an email gets sent out to them.

If it possible instead of entering the username, email is used instead?  Alot of my users forgets their username but not email.


Get current username


Hi, I have the following code which I want to get the current username of the user logged in and use it as the @username parameter:

aspx file:

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataRegionalUserAreas" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:DevCPSdocshare %>"
        SelectCommand="SELECT d.doc_area_name
                        FROM document_area d,document_area_user_access a
                        WHERE a.doc_area = d.doc_area_id
                        AND and a.username=@username">
        <asp:Parameter Name="username" Type="String" />


aspx.cs file:

string username = Request.QueryString["username"];

Accessing Username, password, roles in xml file


Currently I am storing my username and password (passwordFormat="SHA1") credientails in my web.config.  I would like to figure out how to access them in an xml file that I have stored in my App_Data directory rather than the web.config file because I do not want my application restarting everytime I manually add a user (small list of 5 authorized users for the CMS section).

Here is what my web.config section looks like:


<authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms name=".Administration"

How to send Viewers email alerts on approved items



I use the OOB Workflow approval to approve items in a document library. Once the items are approved I want to send out an email alert to a group of people with "read" access. The problem is that the email alerts don't fire. I even changed the alerts to fire on "All Changes", but still nothing coming through. I assume this is because of the workflow approval and perhaps that the event doesn't fire when an item gets published after approval?

But how can I get my readers to be notified of newly published (and approved) items? There must be a way of doing it?

How to setup db diagram to automatically insert username into table?

 I have a table setup in the database for users who are basically going to create a classified listing.  How can I setup a diagram that would easily create a table relationship with the Users table, so that it automatically inserts the users username when they submit a new ad?  If so, how?  I've tried adding a UserName row to my table and creating a relationship with the Users table "UserName" row, but it wasn't accepting the relationship when I tried to save the diagram...apparently because the UserName row in the Users table isn't a primary key?Also, one this is setup, what's the best way to provide the user a way to see a list of their ads and have the ability to edit them?

Approach using Regex in TSQL text manipulation

Hi there I have this following data: 0297144600-4799               0297485500-5599 The 0297485500-5599 based on observation always on position 31 char from the left which this is an easy approach. But I would like to do is to anticipate just in case the data is like this below which means the position is no longer valid: 0297144600-4799      0297485500-5599      0297485600-5699 As you can see, I guess the first approach will the split by 1 blank space (" ") but due to number of space is unknown (varies) how do I take this approach then? Is there any method to find the space in between and shrink into 1 blank space (" "). I am exploring Regex not sure how to do this and what I can think of is that if the blank is space can somehow reduce from xxx to 1 and I can handle this the rest. Thanks dewacorp.alliances

Best approach to handle concurrent requests in winforms

I have a windows client application which would be used many users. This application submit requests to run a workflow (note that this is not a WWF or WCF service, its a class library thats gonna do some processing). What would be the best approach to code this? Would processing each request on a separate thread be a correct way? I am a newbie at this. PLease help. Thanks!

how do i create a windows form application login for to validate username and password from sql serv

 I would like to know how I can create a login form for my windows form application. The login form must be linked to a SQL server 2005 express edition database (in which the username and passwords are stored). The login form must validate the user using the database and allow them to access the program. 

how do I support a "list of approved applications" that can connect?

Suppose I have two instances of an API -- one for production and one for staging. Both use integrated security. Anybody (on the LAN) can write an application that connects to the staging API. However, I want to restrict the applications that connect to the production API (until they've been well tested, etc.). What is the right way to perform this restriction in WCF? I don't even know what unique terminology to use for a web search on this topic.
