Basically I want to create a new record in the webpages_Membership_LogFile database table instead of doing the below webpages_Membership "Modified" function like
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14321696/simple-membershiplast-login-date-of-user
talks about.

How is this possible ?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        public ActionResult Login(LoginModel model, string returnUrl)
        {
            if (ModelState.IsValid
                && !WebSecurity.IsAccountLockedOut(model.UserName, 3, 86400) //after 3 attempts, account locked for 24hrs
                && WebSecurity.Login(model.UserName, model.Password, persistCookie: model.RememberMe))
            {

                using (UsersContext db = new UsersContext())
                {
                    UserProfile userProfile = db.UserProfiles.SingleOrDefault(u => u.UserName == model.UserName);
                    userProfile.LastLogin = DateTime.Now;
                    db.Entry(userProfile).State = EntityState.Modified;
                    db.SaveChanges();
                }

                return RedirectToLocal(returnUrl);
            }

            // If we got this far, something failed, redisplay form
            ModelState.AddModelError("", "The user name or password provided is incorrect.");
            return View(model);
        }

hi,


I dont have web security installed, but check if there is a proc that is invoked by the web security login method (run sql query analyser), you could probably add some extra sql in that proc to do what you require. I wouldn't add it to the profile store as this is more auditing. Also look at a logger like log4net, this give you more flexibility and more re-usability.

Added below to AccountController.cs, works
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
using MWR.Data;

namespace MWR.Controllers
{
    [Authorize]
    [InitializeSimpleMembership]
    public class AccountController : Controller
    {

        private MVC_testEntities db = new MVC_testEntities();
        dataDB dataDB = new dataDB();

. . . . . etc . . . . .

        public ActionResult Login(LoginModel model, string returnUrl)
        {
            if (ModelState.IsValid
                && !WebSecurity.IsAccountLockedOut(model.UserName, 3, 86400) //after 3 attempts, account locked for 24hrs
                && WebSecurity.Login(model.UserName, model.Password, persistCookie: model.RememberMe))
            {
                //*
                webpages_Membership_LogFile wpml = new webpages_Membership_LogFile();
                wpml.UserName = model.UserName;
                wpml.LoginDateTime = DateTime.Now;
                wpml.Status = "SUCCESS";
                db.webpages_Membership_LogFile.Add(wpml);
                db.SaveChanges();
                 //*/

                return RedirectToLocal(returnUrl);
            }

            // If we got this far, something failed, redisplay form

            //*
            webpages_Membership_LogFile wpm2 = new webpages_Membership_LogFile();
            wpm2.UserName = model.UserName;
            wpm2.LoginDateTime = DateTime.Now;
            wpm2.Status = "FAIL";
            db.webpages_Membership_LogFile.Add(wpm2);
            db.SaveChanges();
            //*/

            ModelState.AddModelError("", "The user name or password provided is incorrect.");
