    In codebehind, I have 

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                if (User.Identity.IsAuthenticated)

    I get the following error with regard to "Identity"

    System.Web.Providers.Entities.User' does not contain a definition for 'Identity

    I have the exact same "using's" of other forms without a problem, and there is no "resolve" to find one to fix the problem, so I am at a loss as to what is going on.

    Adding "Context." to User  fixed the problem(Context.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated)
