Hi again,

The answer is of course: it depends.... ;)

Personally, I would use the new Login controls and provider model. These features add a lot of functionality without requiring any custom code.

However, you seemed to have made up your mind already:

Is there a reason you don't want to use these controls? They are highly customizable (for example, you can control the entire HTML they render) and can save you a lot of work.

If you don't want to use these controls and don't want to use the provider model, indeed the way to go is how you did it earlier: create your own form, gather user details, submit them to a database and validate the user.

Personally, I would investigate the out-of-the-box features of ASP.NET 2 once more and see if they are useful to you. Might save you from a lot of work.

Cheers,

Imar
