Login.OnLoggedIn Method (EventArgs)


Raises the LoggedIn event after the user logs in to the Web site and has been authenticated.

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

protected virtual void OnLoggedIn(
	EventArgs e


Type: System.EventArgs

A EventArgs that contains the event data.

The OnLoggedIn method raises the LoggedIn event. Use the LoggedIn event to provide additional processing, such as accessing per-user data, after the user is authenticated.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Handling and Raising Events.

The OnLoggedIn method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors:

When overriding OnLoggedIn in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnLoggedIn method so that registered delegates receive the event.

The following code example uses the LoggedIn event to call a site-specific method that keeps a record of user logins.

<%@ page language="C#" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<script runat="server">
// This custom Login control uses a site-specific method
// to record the current date and time when users are 
// authenticated at the site.

class CustomLogin : Login
    private void SiteSpecificUserLoggingMethod(string UserName)
        // Insert code to record the current date and time
        // when this user was authenticated at the site.

    override protected void OnLoggedIn(EventArgs e)
    // Add the custom login control to the page.
    void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) 
        CustomLogin loginControl = new CustomLogin();
        loginControl.ID = "loginControl";
