Forms Authentication in Visual Web developer

Medium Priority
805 Views
Last Modified: 2013-11-26
I have created a username /password using forms authentication for a web application. Usernames and password are in sql server database and I use a "for next loop" to determine validity. Everyhtings works fine until a user enters an invalid username or password and when they enter the correct ones, the page wont let them in. Unless you close the brower and re-open this continues to happen. The web config is correct and am using forms etc.

Any ideas why?
Web Config
<authentication mode="Forms">
			<forms loginUrl="logon.aspx" 
			protection="All"					
			timeout="30"			
			name=".ASPXFORMSAUTH"
			path="/"
			requireSSL="false"
			slidingExpiration="true"
			defaultUrl="welcome.aspx)"
			cookieless="UseDeviceProfile"
			enableCrossAppRedirects="false"
						
			
						></forms>
		</authentication>
		<authorization>
			<deny users="?"/>
		</authorization>

Dim rowcount = UserInfoGrid.Rows.Count
       
        rowcount = rowcount - 1
       
        For x = 0 To rowcount

After failing for the first time when user enters correct values , does it go inside the for loop and executes the IF condition?
Please debug your application & let me know

It doesnt fail when the right conditions are entered, only when the wrongs are
Anurag AgarwalPython Developer

Commented:
I mean when user enters wrong conditions it will fail. now after failure if user again enters the right conditions then check whether the execution go inside the for loop and it executes the IF condition or not?
Please debug your application & let me know

Can you suggest where to put the break points?

It would seem that it must entering again because it is a button click command?
Anurag AgarwalPython Developer

Commented:
put the breakpoints on line 38 & 44 & 45 in the code you pasted above.
Then let me know which all breakpoints are hit.

chnaged it thanks...but did not help...I think I have looping issues, even when the loop is ended, it does not go to the next statement.

I made a new testlogon.aspx page and changed the web config,  and added a label on the logon page so that the variable y would prove the routine so my vb source would be separate, but that still doesnt help when the two boxes dont match. What I get now is the code disappears in the user and passowrd textboxes, but it wont do a response.redirect///


***********************************
 Dim rowcount = UserInfoGrid.Rows.Count
        Dim y As Double

        rowcount = rowcount - 1

        For x = 0 To rowcount


            TextBox1.Text = Convert.ToString(UserInfoGrid.Rows(x).Cells(0).Text)
            TextBox2.Text = Convert.ToString(UserInfoGrid.Rows(x).Cells(1).Text)

            If UserEmail.Text.TrimEnd = TextBox1.Text.TrimEnd And UserPass.Text.TrimEnd = TextBox2.Text.TrimEnd Then
                'TextBox1.Text = Convert.ToString(UserInfoGrid.Rows(0).Cells(0).Text)
                'TextBox2.Text = Convert.ToString(UserInfoGrid.Rows(0).Cells(1).Text)
                Session("LogName") = UserEmail.Text
                Session("Security") = Convert.ToString(UserInfoGrid.Rows(x).Cells(2).Text)
                Session("AcctID") = Convert.ToString(UserInfoGrid.Rows(x).Cells(10).Text)
                Label1.Text = Session("Security")
                y = x = 1
                Label2.Text = y
                FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage _
                       (UserEmail.Text, Persist.Checked)
            End If


        Next x
        'Call LogRecord()
        If Session("LogName") <> UserEmail.Text Then



            'Request.Cookies.Clear()
            Response.Redirect("goodbye.aspx")
            'FormsAuthentication.RedirectToLoginPage()
        End If

My guess is it could be due to not removing the session ...
After your first successful login ... Are you entering the same Username but different password to check invalidity?
If YES .. Session("LogName") <> UserEmail.Text will return false because Session("LogName") was never cleared.

So here is what I would suggest you to ..
  1. Set breakpoints on following lines
  • For x = 0 To rowcount
  • If UserEmail.Text.TrimEnd = TextBox1.Text.TrimEnd And UserPass.Text.TrimEnd = TextBox2.Text.TrimEnd
  • FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage _
                           (UserEmail.Text, Persist.Checked)
  • If Session("LogName") <> UserEmail.Text Then
  • Response.Redirect("goodbye.aspx")
2. Run you Application in debug mode (i.e. Press F5)
3. It should hit "For x = 0 To rowcount" turning that line yellow
4. Roll over your mouse on "rowcount" and see what is the value. (Post it here).
5. Press F10 and it will move to next statement and keep Pressing until it finishes the loop. Keep tracking if you hit any on the above mentioned bulleted breakpoints.
6. See if you hit Response.Redirect("goodbye.aspx") statement.
Please post your observed results here.

okay first tested with correct user id


For x = 0 To rowcount  ' rowcount =0

User email = right name

FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage _
                      (UserEmail.Text, Persist.Checked)      ' Persist check false ( did not check the box)

If Session("LogName") <> UserEmail.Text Then      ' was correct name

It skipped the response.redirect command because the user name was correct

next ran it with bad userid



For x = 0 To rowcount  ' rowcount =0  ' rwocount was -1....this is not good

It then skipped next debugs and stopped at
If Session("LogName") <> UserEmail.Text Then      'username was incorrect as it was supposed to be

then jumped to redirect page.


I changed the code as follows:

Dim rowcount As Double
        rowcount = UserInfoGrid.Rows.Count
       
        rowcount = rowcount - 1
       
and ran it with out debug and it took me the redirect page and when I went back to home and added the correct id and password it worked!!

well it almost worked..after the bad user name the userid and password boxes went blank, so I re-entered it correctly and then it took me to the re-direct page, i then went to the login page again and entered the correct stuff and it worked...so I seem to have two steps in here instead of one..
