Login Control -- Password, ASP.net 2.0

Hi,
Using login control in my login.aspx page . when ever user checks "Remember me"  userId is stored in cokkie.
At Next login, userID is filled automatically.
This works fine....

Now i'm trying to do the same ..for teh password .... by storing password in cookie and at next login ...fill the password ...
BUt, i am getting this error when i'm trying to fill the Login.Password filed using ...
Login2.Password = Server.HtmlEncode(Request.Cookies["pwd"].Value);
Error:- Property or indexer 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.Login.Password' cannot be assigned to -- it is read only

can i accomplish what i need?

First off, it's a bad idea to store passwords in cookies.  But if you are dead set on doing this, you can access the password textbox by using FindControl, then set the text property of that TextBox.

Login login = (Login)MyLoginView.FindControl("LoginUser");

if (login != null)
    TextBox passwordTextBox = (TextBox)login.FindControl("Password");

if (passwordTextBox != null)
    passwordTextBox.Text = "mypassword"

Hi Nash 2334,

Though there is no error, password is not loaded automatically. Although userid is.

When i tried to debugg using the break points , under control Login2 -> Login2.Pawword  ="" & Login2.UserName = "username"

even though i'm using this line...
                TextBox mypassword = (TextBox)Login2.FindControl("Password");
               mypassword.Text = Server.HtmlEncode(Request.Cookies["pwd"].Value);
NO LUCK sir...

Sorry, use Attributes.Add:

mypassword.Attributes.Add("value", Request.Cookies["pwd"].Value);

Thank you very much dude....  right on the spot.

i know its not good to save cookie with password on client pc, but i will try to encrypt and save it on clients pc and decrypt to authenticate.

would appreciate if you can suggest me one method or point me to best url..

can't ask more...

You can use the FormsAuthentication encrypt method.  Good MSDN article here, very straightforward:

Good luck.
