Hi

I am developing an application with an MDI form, and the first thing the user does is login, so a login form is the first thing they see.

I have created a login script, which checks the database and returns true/false of the details are correct.  Now, I need to store the login details somewhere that is accessible from all forms in the application (on a website I would store them in a session variable) what is the way to do this in c#?

Cheers

CD

A singleton class is probably what you are looking for.
