password help

I want to allow the user to enter his username/password into a text boxes and have it then recorded into the windows registry. to make it his own but so it wont be in a file. then I need the code to be able to go to the registry and check if the name and password are true or not. Is this possible?

Yes, this is possible. Althought it's pretty straight forward, it does require a bit of code to do it.

All you're basically doing is writing to the registry, then reading from the registry. However, to do this (like I said before) requires a bit of code - mostly just setting up the function declarations, and constants. Setting those up is a one time deal though.

I started cutting and pasting some code I have that does exactly what you want when I realized that it was being wrapped by this text box and looked pretty chopped up.

Outlined, whenever you want to read and write to the registry, the function declarations and constants are always the same. So, if you've done it once, save that module and just include it in your next project any time you want to read, write or query the registry.

There are some controls I've heard of to do all of the registry stuff for you, but I'm not sure how well they work and from my experience it's sometimes better to just get your hands dirty. Typically you'll have to eventually anyway.

I would still be happy to cut and paste my code if you like.

Just let me know.

Chris is it possible to e-mail it to me?  I think It would be easier if I can see it and then go from there, being that Im new to programming it takes forever to look things up if you dont know what there called.  Thanks

Thanks Zands,
Most of the code in the .bas module stays constant for any registry stuff. You should virutally never need to change any of that. The only thing you really need to worry about changing is in the code of the two command button clicks (i.e. what you send to the .bas module).

Good luck and let me know if you need any more help with it.
It should be pretty easy to add additional peoples password, usernames, etc.
