I was looking at the project webshop given in the chapter 9. In this project they have used the Login , Password and Creat user controls And have also used the Profiles. I am not cleared on few things and will be appreciated if someone explain this to me:
In the database they have created the tables for Users and profiles which actually store their related information onit. Although in the aspx file they have described the Profiles tag with its fields and datatype, but couldn't figureout how it's associated with the respective aspnet_Profile and aspnet_Users tables in the database ???
Secondly the same with the password recovery control, where this control is associated with the respective table from the databse to actually retrieve the data?
As i am at the biggenner level so detail explanation will be appreciated.
This is all taken care off by the ASP.NET run-time. Both Profile (to store user data) and Membership (for user management, including password retrieval) are so called Application Services that are part of the ASP.NET framework.
Get yourself a copy of Beginning ASP.NET 2.0 or Professional ASP.NET 2.0. for more info about these services.
If you're really at the beginner's level, then ASP.NET 2.0 Instant Results may not be suitable for you at this stage. It may be better to start with Beginning ASP.NET 2.0 and then proceed wit Instant Results.
So basically in order to achieve these functionality of .net framework Do we need to create the tables (aspnet_Profile and aspnet_Users) manually or the asp.net framework do this for us automatucally....
Thanks alot Imar. The article you mention was break.
So basically when someone enter there user id and password the ASP.net framework take care of retrieving the values from the control and use the repectivie table in the database to store them....Am i correct???
