ClientFormsAuthenticationCredentials Class

Represents user login information for forms authentication by using client application services.


Namespace:  System.Web.ClientServices.Providers
Assembly:  System.Web.Extensions (in System.Web.Extensions.dll)

public class ClientFormsAuthenticationCredentials

The ClientFormsAuthenticationCredentials type exposes the following members.

Public methodClientFormsAuthenticationCredentialsInitializes a new instance of the ClientFormsAuthenticationCredentials class.

Public propertyPasswordGets or sets the user password.
Public propertyRememberMeGets or sets a value indicating whether the user credentials should be saved and reused for subsequent login attempts.
Public propertyUserNameGets or sets the user name.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The ClientFormsAuthenticationCredentials class is used by the IClientFormsAuthenticationCredentialsProvider interface. When you implement this interface, you must return a populated instance of this class in your GetCredentials implementation.

The following example code demonstrates how to implement the IClientFormsAuthenticationCredentialsProvider.GetCredentials method, which returns an instance of this class. In this example, the GetCredentials method is part of a login dialog box class. The method displays the dialog box, and then returns a ClientFormsAuthenticationCredentials instance initialized with the user-specified values.

public ClientFormsAuthenticationCredentials GetCredentials()
    if (this.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
        return new ClientFormsAuthenticationCredentials(
            usernameTextBox.Text, passwordTextBox.Text,
        return null;
