If a user goes to the page demos.aspx, but they are not logged in, they are sent to the login.aspx page.  Once they have logged in, I want to sent them back to the page they were at.
Is there some function build into .NET that will do this?

Dan7el,

The code you sent me to at geekswighblogs makes me suspicious.  Why would I need to username?  Maybe I should state that I am not using .NET membership and roles.  This is a custom login.

Are you using Forms Authentication?  You can use custom memberships and roles with forms auth.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I am not using memberships and roles.  Client insisted I not use them.  So this is all custom programming for the login.

Couldn't this be done with something like Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER")

Hi
Whenever you are redirecting to the Login page, you can send the page url in QueryString then after login redirect to that page again.

ramkisan, There are a lot of pages.  That means I would have to update all of them.

Here is the answer.  I found it on another site.

            Dim fromURL As String = Request.ServerVariables("url")
            Response.Redirect("~/FT_Login.aspx?FromURL=" & fromURL)

OK, if you say so.  What I was look for was the Request.ServerVariables("url") statement.
