I am trying to make my own login with as i do not have MS SQL

i have made it, and am wanting to use external classes. i am however finding it difficult to return values back to the original page..

this is the external class for instance.

public class Login
      public static string CartInfo(string username, string password)
           //here i wanto recieve the username and password then send out a bool to say if it is true or false

and this is my web page code.

public void hello(string tom, string iscorrect)
              // here i wanto send the username and password information from the session
               // to the external class by code below...

//then recieve the bool and make a decision based on that.

i am familair with classes just not the returning of values.

just create a function in your custom namespace and class that returns the boolean. then, on your page, you can just call it like

Dim LoginTrue As Boolean = myNamespace.MyClass.LoginTest(usernameSent, passwordSent)

try this:

public class Login
      public static bool CartInfo(string username, string password)
           //here i wanto recieve the username and password then send out a bool to say if it is true or false
           //just assuming
            if(username=="someusername" && password.toString()=="somepwd")
                           return true;
                         return false;

//in your code behind page i.e. login.aspx.cs in page load event handler

if(Login.CartInfo(username.Text, password.Text)==true)
 //login success
  //login failed
