LoginName Class

Displays the value of the System.Web.UI.Page.User.Identity.Name property.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

[BindableAttribute(false)]
[AspNetHostingPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
[AspNetHostingPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
public class LoginName : WebControl
<asp:LoginName />

By default, the LoginName control displays the name contained in the User property of the Page class. If the System.Web.UI.Page.User.Identity.Name property is empty, the control is not rendered.

NoteNote:

If you are not familiar with the set of login controls available in ASP.NET, see ASP.NET Login Controls Overview before continuing. For a list of other topics related to login controls and membership, see Managing Users by Using Membership.

To change the text displayed by the LoginName control, set the FormatString property.

NoteNote:

The LoginName control cannot be used outside the <form> tag on a Web page. Specifically, the LoginName cannot be used to put the user's name in the title of a page.

Accessibility

The markup rendered by default for this control might not conform to accessibility standards such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG) priority 1 guidelines. For details about accessibility support for this control, see ASP.NET Controls and Accessibility.
