FormsAuthentication.RedirectToLoginPage Method

Redirects the browser to the login URL.

Namespace:  System.Web.Security
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public static void RedirectToLoginPage()

The RedirectToLoginPage method redirects the browser to the LoginUrl.

The RedirectToLoginPage method does not clear the forms-authentication cookie. You can use the RedirectToLoginPage method in conjunction with the SignOut method to log one user out and allow a different user to log in.

The following code example clears the forms-authentication cookie using the SignOut method and redirects the user to the login page using the RedirectToLoginPage method.
