Can somebody tell me more over adding User right to a Winform Application in vb.net?

Some users may open a form/report and somebody not. I'll add some right in a table in my database.

Hope somebody can HELP me!.

You could use windows authentication:



You would need to create some sort of user login for the application.

Store the usernames/passwords in your database and set the first screen of your app to ask for this information, check it and then continue on loading the rest of the app if this is ok.

You would then need to add some sort of privalage system to each part of your app that you want to restrict access to.

Its not a monumental task but it can take a while to get right.
