asp.net 2010 Authentication lost

Hello Experts, I am trying to add authentication to a website, by starting with the existing default site with authentication.  I can log in and all.  However, I would like it to redirect to a landing page based upon role.

I have gone to the login page, and added the following event:

LoggedIn

In the handler, I have added the following intense code:

 if(User.IsInRole("LostUser"))
            {
                //User.Identity
                String Tom="Bock Bock Bock";
            }

As you can guess, the string Tom is never assigned the goofy phrase.  Can someone tell me what I am missing or how I can get the users role?

Thank you in advance:

The User.IsInRole doesn't work by default.
You need to setup Roles Provider in web.config and create roles and assign it to the user.

Check this ASP.NET Roles tutorial.
