Examples

The following code example shows a login.aspx page. The authentication is validated using the ValidateUser function. The Membership class relies on membership providers to communicate with a data source.

<%@ Register TagPrefix="mobile" 
    Namespace="System.Web.UI.MobileControls"

<%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.Security" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.Mobile" %>

<script runat="server">
private void Login_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)
{
// Perform Authentication check here by using 
// UserEmail.Value and UserPswd.Value.
    if (Membership.ValidateUser(UserEmail.Text, UserPswd.Text))
    {
        // Set the authorization cookie
        FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(UserEmail.Text, false);
        // Redirect from login page
        MobileFormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(UserEmail.Text, true);
    }
    else
    {
        // Notify the user
        lblError.Text = "Login invalid. Please check your credentials";
