Hi, I'm using the default user tables, objects from VS.NET and eveything works fine. I was looking into the validation and noticed the automatic controls are lacking messages when the login has failed. Any way to detect this and show it in a validator summary (using msgbox) ?
How can I do this ? Thanks

not sure If i get it correct...
But in the designView mode Select the Login Control ..Click the small arrow on top right conner and Select "Conver to Template".
Then Switch back to Source View.
Now you will see the markup for the Login Control. You can add your ValidationSummary control here and specify the Appropriate ValidationGroup.

Yep I can check with required fields and other sorts of validation. What I need however is to catch a response back from the server if the login process has failed and throm a msgbox ! How can I do this ? Thanks
