Store UserID on Authentication

Hi

I am trying to implement membership authentication in .NET using the login control. I must say the simplest thing is defeating me. I want to be able to authenticate then store the userID for later reference. If I do not set my onauthenticate then the button event defaults to a ValidateUser function and I can authenticate fine but I can't capture the ID. So I have wrapped the ValidateUser function in a sub that is called by the onauthentication setting. That enables me to grab my ID but then my validation fails. My code is below, can some kind soul please point my in the right direction???

cheers

Replace your script at the beginning of the page with :

<script runat="server">
    Dim userUID As Guid
   
    Private Sub Authenticated(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
        userUID = Membership.Providers(Login1.MembershipProvider).GetUser(Login1.UserName, True).ProviderUserKey
        Session("UserUID") = userUID.ToString()
    End Sub
</script>

Modify the Login1 control like that :

<asp:Login ID="Login1"
            DisplayRememberMe="false"  
            BorderColor="gray" BorderStyle="Ridge" BorderWidth="1px"  
            ForeColor="white"
            BackColor="blue"
            OnLoggedIn="Authenticated"
            RememberMeSet="false"
            runat="server">
        </asp:Login>    

You willl now handle the OnLoggedIn event and not anymore the Onauthenticate event. Hope this helps
