I have reached the chapter 16 in the "Beginning ASP.NET in C# and VB
" of Imar. All the info you get from that book is really interesting.. want me to know more lol
Through, while i am reading.. tons of questions come to my head about the login controls. The login controls seem very powerful.. however in many custom scenario you still need to add or extend some features.. such :
1- The LoginName control show the username in the Format String.. but what if you wanna show the first and last name of the person instead ? Like Welcome Firstname Lastname..
2- The same goes with the confirmation mail.. is there a way to customize it more ? the mail seem to use some placeholders such <% Username %> what about i wanna show name and lastname instead ?
3- What if you want the user to add additional information in the sign up form ? however look like some infos can be found at http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archi...18/427754.aspx
.. is there way to control, show or even use these data when the user is logged in ?
4- What if i wanna add something else in the login form along with the username and password.. lets say a company field where each company can log-on ? is there a way to detect which company the user selected ?
5- Ive heard about providers... are they used to controls the data ? is there ways to extend a provider or even create a new one so the data can be accessed on our own database instead ?
I am really interrested in the security domain of users and roles management.. however i just don't know where to look at after. If anyone have hints or whatever i would love to heard them about how to extend or customize the login controls or the features.
Thanks. This would be greatly appreciated.
