ClientWindowsAuthenticationMembershipProvider.Logout Method ()


Logs out the user.

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

public void Logout()

The Logout method resets the CurrentPrincipal property to a WindowsPrincipal object that contains the current WindowsIdentity.
