Remarks

The Login control is a composite control that provides all the common user interface elements that are needed to authenticate a user on a Web site. For more information about using the Login control and other login controls, see ASP.NET Login Controls Overview.

Example

The following code example demonstrates how to use a Login control to provide a user interface to log on to a Web site.
