Help with LoginView control

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Now that some of the Security matrix has been approved and site is somewhat more functional. We are going back thru adding the loginview to the pages that need it so we can control who can adn cant see the pages and data.


Can anyone offer some assistance or links to good tutorials?

 To keep it simple, here is what i have setup.. Because if this setup, i cant access my controls and the page wont display either template. Now even though the aspx code below is a very stripped down version of what i have, the code behind has references to controls that dont show in my example, but they are there in my actual page. I Just removed alot of information to make the post more clear.


    <asp:LoginView ID="LoginView1" runat="server">
            <asp:RoleGroup Roles="Admin">
                You are an Admin!
            <asp:RoleGroup Roles="User">
                You are a user!
        <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runa

LoginView.FindControl not finding control

I'm trying to bind data to a repeater. The repeater is inside a loginView control. Like so:            <asp:loginview id="loginView" runat="server">                <anonymoustemplate>                    <asp:repeater id="rpLessons" runat="server">                                            <itemtemplate>                            <div>                                <a  href="Default.aspx?lid=<%# Eval("PodID") %>"><%# Eval("Name") %></a><%#Eval("Duration")%>                            </div>                        </itemtemplate>    &n

LoginView Control Issue

I'm using VWD 2010 Express, and I'm working on a school lesson that I actually did approximately 2 years ago In VWD 2005 with no problems.  I am just learning to program, so my knowledge is very limited.The lesson walks me through creating a master page and then I created a page called "Login.aspx".  On the login page, I am dropping a LoginView control into the ContentPlaceHolder section, and then I'm supposed to type "Welcome !" into the LoginView box for the LoggedIn template, but the LoginView box is very small and when I start typing, the first couple of letters go into the LoginView box, and then they start showing up on the far left outside of the LoginView control.  When I try to click back in the LoginView window, it will only select the entire control, and I can no longer modify what's in the box (unless I go to Source view).  I can't even begin to explain how frustrating this is!!!  It's tough enough trying to learn this stuff and now my development tool is giving me grief!  I don't understand why it worked fine in VWD 2005, but not now (and I'm using the same exact lesson material).

Displaying Role-Specific Markup With the LoginView Control



I want to know how can I display role-specific markup using loginview?

I have these three roles, Admin, Editor, Moderator

Each and every user will belog to only one of the following role groups

1. Admin, Editor,  Moderator (Some user/s will have all these three roles)

2. Admin, Editor   (Some user/s will have all these two roles)

3. Admin, Moderator (Some user/s will have all these two roles)

4. Editor, Moderator (Some user/s will have all these two roles)

5. Admin (Some user/s will have all only this role)

6. Editor (Some user/s will have all only this role)

7. Moderator (Some user/s will have all only this role)

Now I want to display some links that will be specific for each role group to which one or more users will belong. So the links I want to display for these role groups are following

1. Admin, Editor,  Moderator    => Only Links of all the pages of Admin, Editor and Moderator

2. Admin, Editor                       => Only Links of all the pages of Admin and Editor

3. Admin, Moderator                => Only Links of all the pages of Admin and Mode

Login Control , LoginView, Page Redirection


Hi and thanx for giving your time.

I have Default.aspx page with Login control.


protected void Login2_Authenticate(object sender, System.Web.UI.WebControls.AuthenticateEventArgs e)
            //verify that the username/password is valid
            if (Membership.ValidateUser(Login2.UserName, Login2.Password))

                if (Roles.IsUserInRole(Login2.UserName, "Administrator"))

Removed text boxes from within loginview control and now nothing is returned via ValidateUser.


I removed two textboxes (textbox_LoginName and textbox_Password) and a button (button_Login) from a LoginView control by cutting and pasting. I placed them within a panel. In the code behind for the login file I removed the FindResource method that I had to use while the controls were buried within the LoginView control. This allowed my to simply use the Text properties of the textboxes as the parameters for the ValidateUser method.

The ValidateUser method was working prior to making the changes. Now, however, when called if the user is a legitimate username and password it returns no user at all - just empty strings/nulls. If the login credentials are incorrect it behaves as normal.

Here is my code:

 protected void button_Login_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        // Validate user against the Membership framework user store.
        if (Membership.ValidateUser(textbox_LoginName.Text, textbox_Password.Text))
            string myUser = User.Identity.Name;

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. Now, seems that most of the developers are asking if how to add a delete functionality with it. So in this example, I'm going to show on how to delete a certain row in the dynamic GridView with TextBoxes.

Accessing the different controls inside a GridView control

how we can access a particular control which resides inside a GridView control. In this article I will show you how you can access different controls inside a GridView control. We will see how we can access a TextBox control, a DropDownList control and a ListBox control. If you are working with ASP.NET 1.X then you might want to check out my article Accessing Different Controls Inside a DataGrid.

In-Depth look at the GridView Control

In the last article we looked at few of the new controls available in Asp.net 2.0. We also talked about Grid View Control which has replaced the Asp.net 1.1 DataGrid control for good. In this article we will examine more features of the Grid View control. In this article we will see some of the common operations that can be performed using the GridView control. Apart from these operations there are many more functions that can be performed on the control and which we will see in the later articles

ASP.NET repeater control - databind with style

even used the inline editing features, which I at the time thought was the coolest way possible to write ASP.NET code ( I managed to write code to hide all other rows and only show the current one - the row being edited). With a nice looking EditTemplate it looked indeed very slick but it really turned into giant and hard to manage code behind files.

Creating Paging for a Repeater Control

A common question is "How do I implement paging within a Repeater?" Although the beauty of the Repeater control is its flexibility, you're on your own for building most functions. ASP.NET 2.0 has included some new controls that provide paging, as does the DataGrid in ASP.NET 1.1. However, this tip shows you how to roll your own paging for a simple data viewer.

Using TemplateFields in the GridView Control

The GridView is composed of a set of fields that indicate what properties from the DataSource are to be included in the rendered output along with how the data will be displayed. The simplest field type is the BoundField, which displays a data value as text. Other field types display the data using alternate HTML elements. The CheckBoxField, for example, renders as a checkbox whose checked state depends on the value of a specified data field; the ImageField renders an image whose image source is based upon a specified data field. Hyperlinks and buttons whose state depends on an underlying data field value can be rendered using the HyperLinkField and ButtonField field types.

Easily manipulate data with the GridView control in ASP.NET 2.0

Last week, I introduced ASP.NET 2.0's GridView data control and covered the basics of using it. This week, I go a step further by going into the details of working with the data contained in the control. This includes viewing, editing, and deleting data. Thankfully, the GridView control makes it easy to utilize these features. Before diving into these topics, I begin with an examination of the different field types supported by the GridView control.

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
