forms authentication, log out button

Hello,
I am using ASP.NET 1.1 and just tried my hand at forms authentication.  I want the 'logo' image, the 'Log out' button, and the Label having text as ("Hello " + User.Identity.Name")  to appear on every page once the user is logged in.  I don't know what's the best way to achieve this.

I created one page with just these three controls and showed this page as a frame at the top once the user has logged in. But I don't want this top frame to appear when the user is not logged in and the 'login.aspx' page should appear in the whole window then.

If a page other than the login.aspx page is requested after the logout, the control goes to the login page as desired. But the problem is since any other window (except the one having login.aspx page) contains two frames, two login.aspx pages are opened, one in each frame. How do I redirect a request to any window(which is containing two frames = two aspx pages) after logout to just one whole frame containing the login.aspx page?

or is there a better solution than using frames?
Please help. Thank you.

You have "usercontrol" as a best option.... Just add youe logo , button and label in a usercontrol. and just include it in your webpages.

Thanks Sandip.
I thought frames would be an easier option than creating a panel on every page and adding the user control to the panel. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Could this problem be solved if I continue to use frames? or is there any other way?
Thanks.

I am not talking about Panel. I am refering to use user-control. Please visit the links, so that you will get better idea.  For your requirement User control is a very good option.

Ok. Thanks Sandip. If I want to position the user control on a web form, I will need to add a placeholder (like a panel) to every web form and then add a user control to the placeholder, right?

Not required.... you can just drag n drop and use like any other web control.
