Can't get DropDown in place of username textbox to work in login control (ASP.Net)

Hello All!

I am working on a project where usernames can be easily misspelled. As such, after assessing the security risks, we have decided to implement a dropdownlist in the Login control of our membership interface. The problem is it does not want to work! I keep getting the following application error: "BC30451: 'LoginUser' is not declared. It may be inaccessible due to its protection level."

Below is my code in the snippets. First is the ASP.Net form and second is the VB Code Behind! Anyone have any ideas?
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Imports System.Configuration
Imports System.Web.Security
Imports System.Security.Permissions

Partial Class Login
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
            Dim UsersList As DropDownList = TryCast(LoginUser.FindControl("UsersList"), DropDownList)
            UsersList.DataSource = Membership.GetAllUsers()
            UsersList.DataBind()
        End If
    End Sub
    Protected Sub UserSelected(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
        LoginUser.UserName = TryCast(sender, DropDownList).SelectedValue
    End Sub
End Class

Hi,

According to your aspx page, your  LOGIN controld ID = "Login1", so what is LoginUser?

That makes perfect sense. I had another user on another forum proved me with the methods to accomplish this and of course, I always seem to overlook the simplest thing! Thanks a lot!
