RememberMe cookie retrieval in MembershipProvider

In asp.net I am using the Login control with the checkbox for the RememberMe (provided by default).

I have created my own custom MembershipProvider.

When I step through the code, upon submission of the Log in control, it steps me through the ValidateUser function. I do not find anywhere in using my debug "watch" window where the RememberMe field is populated.

How do I retrieve the value of the "RememberMe" field so that I can know if a member has selected for me to remember them in a login cookie?

thanks.

Hi,

How do I convert that first line to VB? My loginID is:

                <asp:Login ID="Login1" runat="server"         OnLoggedIn="Login1_LoggedIN"
...

But when I set this up in my codebehind, the "Login1" is squiggly underlined...

    Protected Sub Login1_LoggedIN(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim rememberme As CheckBox = Login1.FindControl("RememberMe")


My codebehind inherits:
Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

Is there anything else I need to get the "Login1" to not be squiggly underlined?

thanks!
