  • Hi

    I am looking to building out my own WinForm w/ custom login UI elements and then invoking the Live ID Login behavior.  Can someone share a sample or provide ideas on how I might do this.  I am looking for an API where I can send off the UID, PWD to the ::Login() (or similar) method call.

    I searched in the forum for "custom login" - and was only able to find a couple of threads - but, w/ no avail

    thanks in advance

  • You may want to take a look at the "Signing users in" article here:

    Note that obtaining a user's username and password yourself and passing them in to Live Connect is not supported:
