Simple check login details?

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

Hi, OK, never done anything with LDAP before so I am very new to this.  I could really do with some guidence on how to do something which I am hoping is pretty simple.  I have a web page on my intranet which runs a report, now lets say I have a particular filter that I only want certain people to be able to use, there are already items in place to check permissions based on the windows login credentials (and this is all code I have inherited I am not the author) but this simply checks the current logged in user.  I want to be able to get them to provide their user name and password so any user can do it from any machine where they may not be logged in to.

So simply provide their usrname and password and I check the active directory to see if those credentials are correct.  Only I have no real idea on how to go about this.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I thought this would be simple... Trying to create a login does an ajax check before submit


I have the standard .net login control that is working.  (Still learning .net after 15yrs of classic)

What I want to do is OnButtonClick run a javascript function (to do an ajax call to the db to check if login is valid or not) and if it returns true, then submit the form normally, else don't submit. The piece that I can't figure out, is how to correctly override the default click even to hit my JS routine and then submit the form properly afterwards.

Thanks ahead of time

need a simple login page cus my hosting provider system wont allow me to have more than one database

I dont really write html code too well  but I manged to get my web site developed and deployed using the built in features such as drag n drop, master page and user account authentication that make web developing almost a codeless experience. However; my hosting provider system wont allow me to have more than one database, this causes problems becasue when I developed my web app using vb2010 web developer (asp.net v2) I used the built in web config tool to manage users for my site, now after I deployed to my domain it all worked ok with the exeption of the login page, when I tried to log in the system threw a error message saying "database not found." or a page of "gobble-dee-gook" that says the same thing When I contacted support (my hosting provider) they said i have to create a table of users in my database file via 2008 sql server, thats ok I can do that, but my real problem is I dont know how to write appropriate code to reference the table. So heres my problem:  I just want to have some kind of login page with a couple of txtboxes and a click button that maybe using the VB code behind or html checks the input variables "username" "password" against something that is hard coded into vb a string variable or a constant and then branches to Mainmenu.aspx if successfull. I just need it real simple, no fancy stuff just a login s

Check user and pass at login

Hello!I use a class method that looks something like this to check for user and pass at login:public static bool checkUser(string conn, string user, string pass) { SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(conn); string sql = "SELECT User, Pass FROM TableUser WHERE User = @user AND Pass = @pass"; SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(sql, conn); SqlParameter daUser = da.SelectCommand.Parameters.Add("@user", SqlDbType.NVarChar); SqlParameter daPass = da.SelectCommand.Parameters.Add("@pass", SqlDbType.NVarChar); daUser.Value = user; daPass.Value = pass; conn.Open(); DataSet ds1 = new DataSet(); da.Fill(ds1, "tbl"); int i = ds1.Tables["tbl"].Rows.Count; conn.Close(); if (i == 1) return true; else return false; }...and I just wanted to ask, if there is a shorter/faster way (the user table is on an SQL Server? Also is this way secure?Note: I set the collation for the password field on the SQL Server to be case sensitive so I don't have to account for it in the code.Thx!M

Using a CompareValidator to check input is a valid date

The CompareValidator can do more than just compare two controls. You can also compare it against several of the main .net data types such as Date, Integer, Double and Currency.

To do this you would set Operator="DataTypeCheck" and instead of setting the ControlToCompare or ValueToCompare attributes as you normally would you use the Type="Date" (or any of the data types I have listed above).

Displaying Row Details Tooltip on GridView using JQuery

Continuing exploring JQuery! I decided to implement a feature to display some kind of details related to a row displayed on GridView. For example when displaying employees details on GridView some information might not fit in the GridView because it will make it huge and wide. These infomration can be diplayed as Tooltip. Or when you want to display a picture and some kind of formated text to be diplayed as tooltip when mouse hover on the image.

Check All with JQuery and a Asp.Net GridView

Display a Grid on the screen with a checkbox in each row. At the bottom of the page have "Check All" button.

Typically if I need to do anything interesting I use a template column. So my GridView will look like the one below (most other columns removed for readability). The only interesting point to note is the CssClass="ApprovalCheckBox" in the CheckBox ItemTemplate.

A Simple and Extensible Radio Button Style GridView

The GridView is one of the significant controls in ASP.NET 2.0 and later versions. No doubt it reduces a lot of work time. However, customizing the GridView control is not an easy task. For example, it's hard to add a radio button column to the GridView. This article demonstrates the reason why a radio button column cannot act as normal and how to create a simple and extensible radio button GridView.

Silverlight Simple Animation

Silverlight has several built in techniques for animating controls. Many of these technologies are particularly useful for creating simple animations meant to decorate a web page with eye catching movement that draws the reader's attention. In this post I will skip over these decorative technologies, and instead show how to create a simple animation using a technique similar to those used in many games.

How to check for null/empty strings on dynamic objects?


What is the proper way to check for null or empty strings on dynamic objects? This is the only solution I've found so far:

if (admin.PasswordHash.GetType() == typeof(DBNull) || admin.PasswordHash == string.Empty)

If the field is null, the object returned is DBNull.Value, but if the field is empty string, it's return as a System.String object. This makes it impossible to do regular "admin.PasswordHash == DBNull.Value" check, as that will fail whenever the field has been set to empty string. Is my example the right (and only) way to go?

Linq - add data to database then email user the details


Hi all

I'm not sure how to structure the code for this but what I want to do is be able to add data to a database, and once this has completed successfully, then email the user to say the details have been added successfully to the database.

I need to:

1. Check that the relevant data has been added into the database then

2. Email the details of the relevant data when completed. 


Thanks in advance for your help,
