Web Forms :: Display User Specific Information From Database - Based On Login ID
Jan 7, 2011
I have a online game (written in ASP) which i have finally decided to convert to ASP.NET. However i cannot seem to link the login ID's of users to their specific details in the database. I.E when Joe Bloggs logs in, he will be shown the team information for just his club, not every club. in ASP I use code similar to this below
im not convinced that is the right syntax to be using, but when i execute the code in Query Builder it is showing me the correct data (that i expect to see). So im wondering if there is something else im missing? Is there something extra that i need to be adding in Web.Config file or elsewhere?
I have a need to display user-specific information in my master page. As a result, I have set up all of my controllers to be inherited from a "master" controller. This has worked well for other aspects of the master page, such as displaying random quotes. However, while using this technique to incorporate the user-specific information, I ran into a problem where, when I check the Request.IsAuthenticated value, the Request object is null.
Here is my "master" controller:
Curiously - at least to me - is that the Request object becomes populated by the time program flow hits the Home Controller: [Code]....
how can I retrieve information when the user clicked on a specific link without opening a new web page? The information is stored in the database which is through web service. For example, when the user click on a specific link, e.g the date 28 February 2010, the datagrid will display the information on 28 February 2010.
I am attempting to convert an online game i have written in ASP into ASP.NET,, but I am failing at a very early and probably a very amateurish stage.
I am using a Sample ASPX project. There is an ASPNETDB database included, when i register my username is added to the DB along with a userID and various other fields. This is stored in a table called aspnet_Users.
I have created a new table called tblClubs, which stores information such as ClubName, StadiumCapacity etc I added a field called 'Owner' and this is directly related to the UserName field in the aspnet_Users table
What I am trying to solve is to show user specific information from the database, based on their LoginID.
My username is Laclerque and my club is called Racing Mongoose, the stadium capacity is 9500.. the information for each User needs to be different and just show the information that is relevant to them.
obviously in the longer term, there is going to be 100's of these associations required for the full game, but not until i can get my head around the basics of how to set this information. I tend to work better when i can see a working sample, and then adapt things to suit my needs.
We have created a windows application which is distributed amongst our clients. The application uses SQL Server 2008 as the back end and each client uses their own database on their own server. The databases are all exactly the same but each clients data is specific only to them.
We would like to offer our clients the ability to log-in to our website which would then login to their own database so that when they are out in the field they can perform similar tasks to what they can do with the windows app.Each of the clients databases has a user table containing their login details, permissions etc.
Our server is running on IIS and has SQL Server 2008 installed but it only contains our data and nothing of the clients.How should we go about this?
What I mean is do we need to make each client have an additional login to our main server which would then hold each clients individual connection strings etc which would then be used to connect to there specific database and then they would need to login again?? Seems like a nightmare for the user.
I'm making a small portal in ASP.net (with C#.net4) where users can login and add, edit their personal information (PI). But I don't get how to load information (stored in a SQL server DB) in the page when a specific user is logged in.
For example: If Sam is logged in, he can view his PI. When Vicky is logged in, she can view her PI.
which i added one sitemap in whcih i added all the pages n i want to retrive that sitemap in masterpage based on login in whcih suppose admin hs login then display only admin pages with sitemap n if normal user hs login then it ll display only normal user pages with sitemap. here i didn't use login control but i create login page manually.
I am trying to query a DB and get a list of users based on a specific boolean property stored in the aspnet_profile for that user. I am aware that it wasn't possible a few years ago [URL] but was wondering whether that had changed in recent releases, or it was still not possible without trawling through the entire list of users and testing them one by one. (My DB may become way to big for that.)
I have the following implementation and I'm sure there is an easy way to do what I want to do but I can't figure it out.
1. I use forms based authentication to authenticate to my site
2. I use active directory to authenticate the users
3. I use the Allow Users="xxx" tag to authorize the users limited to the list that can access my site. (e.g.. even though Mary is an AD user she can't access my site unless I put her credentials in the allow users tag in the web.config file)
All is working well but I want to move the users access list (e.g.. <allow users="john" />" from the web.config to a database table so that I can create a user maintenance page for my admins to add and delete user access. For the life of me I can't figure out how to do this and I can't seem to find an article on it either.
I have created a login form through VS 2008 using C#. There are 5 different aspx pages in my application.
1)Default.aspx: It contains only a hyperlink to direct the user to login.aspx page.
2)Login.aspx: This page has texbox for Username and Password, sign in button, textbox for displaying error and hyperlink (Create an Account) if the user does not created an account yet.
Here is Login.aspx code:
Now, I want to do following with my application.
If the user already has an account, he can put his username and password and click on the sign in button. If the username is existed in databse, application should compare the user input with database and if both are matched then the application should redirect the user to "welcome.aspx". If username does not exist it should show that Username does not exist.
I want to display a menu (which will be strongly typed with it's own unique model) across all pages only if a user is logged in.What menu items are available depend on the user's role and also I'll need to hit the repository to get numbers like "x Messages", etc
Been scratching my head for a simple solution here. Don't want to create something that need changes all over the place.All my controllers derive from a BaseController, all my Models from BaseViewModel....probably where I'll be implementing functionality for this.
I have a drop down list bound to a column in a database. If a user logs into the website using the standard login controls, I want the drop down list to automatically select there name from the list. here is the code that doesn't work
The error orrcurs here:
Which intellisense says "Property Access must Assign to it's property or use it's values". Do I have the code all wrong? Also, as a side question, I don't understand why I have to use the TryCast find control option to find every control to use them. Even in the Page_Load if I type in DropDownList1 it says it's not declared.
