Last Modified: 2012-08-13
Hello Experts,

I have the following code below. I need to compare two values in my database against the values entered in two TextBox controls and if they exist send an email to the email address listed in DB and if they don't exist display error message. Please see my attached code and stored procedure.

protected void btn_ForgotPassword_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        using (SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["HealthCourses"].ConnectionString))
            SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand();
            cmd.CommandText = "HealthCourses_VerifyUsernameEmail";
            cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
            cmd.Connection = conn;

            cmd.Parameters.Add("@users_username", SqlDbType.VarChar, 50).Value = txtUsername.Text;
            cmd.Parameters.Add("@users_email", SqlDbType.VarChar, 100).Value = txtEmail.Text;


                SqlDataReader rdr = cmd.ExecuteReader();

                if (rdr.Read())
                    Session["UsersID"] = rdr["users_id"].ToString();
                    lblForgotPasswordError.Text = "Invalid Credentials";


            catch (Exception ex)
                lblForgotPasswordError.Text = ex.Message.ToString();

Open in new window

CREATE PROCEDURE HealthCourses_VerifyUsernameEmail

@users_username varchar(50),
@users_email varchar(100)


SELECT users_id, users_username, users_email
FROM dbo.HealthCourses_Users
WHERE users_username = @users_username AND users_email = @users_email
