Hello,

This is sort of an extension to my question here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Dot_Net/ASP_DOT_NET/Q_21887299.html

Basically, i am using windows authentication.  When a user accesses the site i want to grab their information, go to the database, and see if their windows account is in the idsid or not.


so where should i do this?  in init()?  or where?

please keep in mind that i also have this code:

void WindowsAuthentication_Authenticate( object s, WindowsAuthenticationEventArgs e ) {
      e.User = new GenericPrincipal( e.Identity, (string[])(colRoles[e.Identity.Name.ToLower()]));
}

Hi,
  I am not very much clear about your query.But as per my understanding i think that you want  to enable windows authentication for your application and need to track the windows userid with your existing userid values in the database.

 In that case you can validate that in the pageload event itself
Including the following code
      system.web.ui.page.User.Identity.Name  
will return you the value as <domainname>\<userid> format provided that windows authentication is enabled in your application.Using the <userid> you can do your validations

Thanks,
Nanda
