    Hi,

    I am starting to develop an ASP.Net application.

    I will have a logon page which will take a UserName and
    Password. A Stored Procedure will verify that the logon
    is correct.

    I was going to use a Session Variable to indicate whether
    the user is logged on or not. Based on this variable I
    would show certain links, allow access to certain pages.

    Is this a good idea or is there a better way?

    Thanks.
    Carl.

  2. ASP.NET has this functionality built in. It's called Forms Authentication.
    It is easily configured in your web.config file.
    Here's more information:

    You may want to combine this with your session technique you mentioned to
    determine which links to make visible on your page.

    Have a look at
    http://www.zdnet.com.au/builder/program/windows/story/0,2000035027,20274191,
    00.htm

    It explains how to use Forms authentication with a database, allowing you to
    have an automated signup to enter user's details into a database.
