I have recently inherited an existing system and I need to access the User.IsInRole function from with the Authenticate method -- is this possible.

Once the Authenticate method is executed User object is always available but is *not* populated when one tries to access it in the Authenticate method itself.

The application uses the in built login controls. the environment is .net 2.0.

Instead of User.IsInRole, use Roles.IsUserInRole("username","Your Role")
