After as user logs into a web page how do you get the usersname and he role. I need to send users of different role to different pages. Here's the code I have been trying
Protected Sub Login1_Authenticate(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.AuthenticateEventArgs) Handles Login1.Authenticate
        Dim username1 As MembershipUser = Membership.GetUser
        Dim returnvalue As Boolean
        returnvalue = Roles.IsUserInRole("username1", "Administrators")
        If returnvalue = True Then
            Server.Transfer("Admin.aspx")
        Else
            Server.Transfer("Order History.aspx")
        End If

    End Sub
