How to: Display Different Information to Anonymous and Logged-in Users 

You can display different information to anonymous and logged-in (authenticated) users by including a LoginView control on the page. The LoginView control includes two templates: one for displaying information to anonymous users, and the other for displaying information to logged-in users. (You can also include templates based on role names using the RoleGroups property.)The control automatically determines whether a user is authenticated and renders the appropriate template.

To display different information to anonymous and logged-in users

  1. Place a LoginView control on your page.

  2. In the control, create a LoggedInTemplate, and in the template, create content that should be visible only to authenticated users.

  3. In the control, create a AnonymousTemplate, and in the template, create the content that should be visible to users who have not logged in.

Example

<asp:LoginView ID="LoginView1" Runat="server">
  <LoggedInTemplate>
   <asp:LoginName ID="LoginName1" Runat="server" 
                  FormatString ="Welcome, {0}" />
   <br />
    <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" Runat="server" 
      NavigateUrl="~/MemberPages/ChangePassword.aspx">
      Change Password
    </asp:HyperLink>
  </LoggedInTemplate>
  <AnonymousTemplate>
    <asp:Login id="Login1" runat="server" 
        CreateUserText="Create a new user..."
        CreateUserUrl="~/Register.aspx" 
        PasswordRecoveryUrl="~/Recovery.aspx" 
        UserNameLabelText="E-mail address:" />
  </AnonymousTemplate>
</asp:LoginView>

The code example shows a declarative syntax for a LoginView control with both a logged-in and anonymous template.
