Remarks

The RedirectToLoginPage method redirects the browser to the LoginUrl.

The RedirectToLoginPage method does not clear the forms-authentication cookie. You can use the RedirectToLoginPage method in conjunction with the SignOut method to log one user out and allow a different user to log in.

Unlike the HttpResponse.Redirect method, this method does not end the request by calling HttpResponse.End. This means that code that follows the RedirectToLoginPage method call will run.

RedirectToLoginPage() RedirectToLoginPage() RedirectToLoginPage() RedirectToLoginPage()

Redirects the browser to the login URL.
