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
Dim instance As ClientFormsAuthenticationCredentials

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 Function GetCredentials() As  _
    ClientFormsAuthenticationCredentials Implements _

    If Me.ShowDialog() = DialogResult.OK Then 
        Return New ClientFormsAuthenticationCredentials( _
            UsernameTextBox.Text, PasswordTextBox.Text, _
        Return Nothing 
    End If 

End Function
