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

public virtual bool VisibleWhenLoggedIn { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

false if the Login control should be hidden when the user is authenticated; otherwise, true. The default is true.

The VisibleWhenLoggedIn property specifies whether the Login control is displayed to authenticated users. When the property is false, the Login control does not appear on the page when an authenticated user accesses the site. This is used on Web pages that are used both as login pages and as information pages to hide the Login control after the user has been authenticated.

The VisibleWhenLoggedIn property has no effect on a Login control that appears on the default login page defined in Web.config or in the application's configuration file.

This property cannot be set by themes or style sheet themes. For more information, see ThemeableAttribute and ASP.NET Themes and Skins.

The following code example sets the VisibleWhenLoggedIn property to true to specify that the Login control is not hidden and is always displayed on the page, regardless of whether the user has been authenticated.
