I am trying to display a label on the Login.aspx page based on the access denied values that are produces when a user clicks a links to a page that requires a login. My code is below.

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

        If Request.QueryString("ReturnUrl").ToString() = "%2fefitnessplanner_dev%2fworkouts_saved.aspx" Then

 Label1.Visible = True

        Else : Label1.Visible = False

        End If

    End Sub

Admiitedly I have not done much code writing on this project so I am not sure if the code is accurate. I do not get a compile/build error. The problem is the label displays regardless of what link I click. Is my syntax right. Should I write it another way. The following is the entire url return value:

http://localhost/efitnessplanner_dev/(S(13hshoxd1kfnomtl2ldfn5kg))/login.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fefitnessplanner_dev%2fworkouts_saved.aspx

If I can get past this hurdle it will help me with this project greatly. Thanks for your help in advance.

I have also tried this approach with contains in the code. The label still displays when it should not:

 If Request.QueryString("ReturnUrl").Contains("%2fefitnessplanner_dev%2fworkouts_saved.aspx") Then

            Label1.Visible = True

        Else : Label1.Visible = False



        End If

    End Sub

The contents of the QueryString you're testing against are decoded automatically. So the contents in this case would be "/efitnessplanner_dev/workouts_saved.aspx".
