Getting user's information RRS feed

  • User272600043 posted

    Hello dear all!

    I am currently working on "My information" page for the users. I am using VS's own create user wizard and its own database. But I am confused to get inofrmation of the user that is logged in. My database's name is(aspnetdb.mdf) and I have an sqldatasource (called sqldatasource1). Now what I want datasource to do is retreiving the data of the user that is logged in. For example My user name is  "Admin". When I open "My information Page" datasource will retrieve the informiaton where column username(in the DB) equals "Admin"(the username). How can I do that. I tried some codes but they didn't work. WHen I write them gridview comes empty. I tried (User.IDentity.Name) But it didn't work.

    I am waiting for your answers

    Thanks!

    But plus that I want users to see their own information in a page.

    Just use the specific user's Info such as ID to query out all the info from the user and use output to page.

    Seems like you need to setup the ASP.NET Membership roles/providers.

    Do you want users to create, login and view pages?

    If so, then read this:http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2006/05/07/ASP.NET-2.0-Membership-and-Roles-Tutorial-Series.aspx

    You can create your own "users" table/objects, but Microsoft has it built in already. Smile
