ASP.NET 4 and visual studio 2010 Membership web

Hello.  i am new to ASP.net programmng.  I am using visual studio 2010 and created a website using asp.net 4 and vb.  The website installed the default login sceem and allows me to create roles.  What I want to have the registered user directed to a specific page built for them based on their user id.    Can anyone point me in the right direction to get this done.  So far I create roles for each user and allowed only the user assigned to the role access to the page i want them to go.   But everytime a user logs in it automatically directs them to the default.aspx page.

Thank you

Hi,

In your login page (presumably Login.aspx) you will have a server control like:

<asp:Login ID="Login1" runat="Server">
</asp:Login>

Either you select the control in the IDE and scroll through the properties window until you find the "DestinationPageUrl" property or simply add the property to the declarative markup like:

<asp:Login ID="Login1" runat="Server" DestinationPageUrl="~/Redirect.aspx">
</asp:Login>

Please note, the declarative markup for your control might contain other properties other than what are shown here.

Hi,

You have a couple of options:

1) In the Page_Load event (or Page_Init) for Default.aspx, add some logic for the conditional redicrection - or -
2) For the Login control, specify the "DestinationPageUrl" property to something like "Redirect.aspx" and put some code in there:
Partial Class Redirect
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page


    Protected Sub Page_PreInit(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.PreInit
        If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
            If User.Identity.IsAuthenticated Then
                For Each role As String In Roles.GetAllRoles()
                    If User.IsInRole(role) Then
                        Response.Redirect("~/" & role.ToString() & ".aspx")
                        Exit For
                    End If
                Next
            End If
        End If
    End Sub
End Class

Open in new window


Assuming you have role names matching page names this little piece of code will automatically redirect the user to the correct page. Let's say you have a role called "admins" - if you have a page called "admins.aspx" any user in that group will be directed to it. You will need to change this logic to suit your needs but you should get the idea.

Thank you. Quick question and please forgive my lack of experience.  When you say in the login control, do you mean the login.aspx page.  And where do I specifily the destination URL.

Thank you for responding

Sorry.  One last question.  I was able t add the redirect.aspx  your explaination was perfect.  On the redirect.aspx I am not sure where to add the code

Partial Class Redirect
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page


    Protected Sub Page_PreInit(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.PreInit
        If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
            If User.Identity.IsAuthenticated Then
                For Each role As String In Roles.GetAllRoles()
                    If User.IsInRole(role) Then
                        Response.Redirect("~/" & role.ToString() & ".aspx")
                        Exit For
                    End If
                Next
            End If
        End If
    End Sub
End Class
