I would like to create my own custom login screen for windows xp, so instead of typing my password, just put my finger on a fingerprinter sensor and my app will read the fingerprint and see how it is, then make the login itself.

Move From Custom Login Screen To Active Directory LDAP Authentication?

Mar 11, 2009

I have a WinForms app with SQL05 backend. It has a standard Login window where users are required to supply a username/password. This is validated using my own code and sprocs. Now one of my big clients has scared the bejezus out of me by saying, "Hey Chris, I want you to change your app in line with all our other IT systems so that users can use their common username and passwords with authentication against LDAP". :confused: Having had a moment to reflect, I have some questions (some very noob in nature!)

1. Is this requirement a big deal? :) Or straightforward to implement?

2. Does this mean that when user's double-click my app icon on the desktop, the authentication automagically happens without the need for a Login screen?

3. How on earth can I test this. My dev environment does not use AD, but I do have SBS2003

4. Can anyone point me to good resources about this on the web?

Create A Login Screen Based On A Table In An Access Database?

Jan 23, 2011

I have made an Access database complete with a report/form UI, however I am now looking to take this further to Visual Basic. In my Access database I have a log-in form to access some secure reports. I am now trying to do the same thing in Visual Basic, with no luck. I have created the UI elements i.e. buttons and text boxes, but am now stuck at how to implement the code.What I want to do is make the login button check what's in the username/password boxes with a table in my Access database.

Create An Enhanced Login Screen For A Windows Vista Computer

May 5, 2009

i want to create an enhanced login screen for a windows vista computer. On my laptop i am able to scan my finger to login instead of using a password. This fingerprint scanner is a program/process on my computer. If this program is able to detect a finger print being scanned and then act accordingly on the login screen, even when the user has not logged in yet, then what i want to do is possible.

All i want to do is create my own security/login screen, perhaps mine can replace the default windows vista one on my computer.

So here are my main questions:

1. How do i make my program/process run on the login screen, before the user signed in? (So i may use my own login program)

2. Depending on the anwser to question 1, how do i replace the default login screen?

C# - Custom "POST" Request To Skip Website Login Screen?

Sep 12, 2011

There's a certain website I need to access multiple times each day that requires me to enter my login name/password first, every time. To save some time, I copied-and-pasted the HTML source code and pre-populated the text fields with my info, then saved that to my desktop. Now I can just open that doc in my browser and click "submit" without having to type anything.

Create Own Track / Volume Sliders / Even A Custom 'screen' To Play Visualisations / Movies?

Feb 1, 2009

I've recently been working on a simple media player (following some guide and using my small brain ). I have created a simple playlist, with load/ save ability, add remove track and play and all the normal bull . However I was wondering if I could get some help making it more advanced: How do I create my own track / volume sliders - and even a custom 'screen' to play visualisations / movies? how do I create skip buttons (the ones on the media player controller don't work :@)? I know how to make a button skip a track (I think), but how to I make it skip to the next track in my playlist box? [code] I have created a context menu for my playlist, with buttons such as play, add and remove, but I want it so that when I right click on song the code activates on the song I right clicked on. At the minute whatever song I right click on it still runs the code on the song that selected not the one I right clicked on.Also my playlist, displays the whole file location of the tracks, how to I make it display only the tracks name.Also I have an open dialog control, I know how to set a filter, but how do i set it to filter more than one extension.please note that most of this code is from various guises, and I have simply edited it and merged different codes to suit my needs.

basically i want to create a login to my program which uses the same username and password as windows login.I already know how to retrieve username and auto place it in the username box using

TextBox1.Text = Environment.UserName.ToString

i wondered is there an easy way to only allow access if the password matches up to their logon? i dont know about setting up databases but i dont think this option would work because each member of staff can personally choose their password.

Making A Login Screen

Apr 20, 2012

I am trying to make it so when a user logs in the code can tell, if they are a user or not, if they are a user, then if they are a teacher or not. I have SQL in there to identify if the person is a user or not, but it won't bring up an error message if they aren't. And if both the users logging in are not teachers they are still able to view a screen they are not meant to.

Adding App To The Windows 7 Login Screen

Mar 15, 2012

I am writing a simple password self service app that allows users to change their password and unlock their accounts. My last step is to figure out how to get it on the login screen. Basically so users can run it before logging in (necessary because this
is to help if their passwod is lost or account disabled). I've seen screenshots of commercial apps putting it on this screen and/or the actual login box (like in XP) but I cant find any information on how to do this.

.net - Load Up Combo Box Values Once (at Login Screen)?

Mar 10, 2011

I have a few combo boxes that need to be loaded up once and displayed multiple times (whenever the main form is opened) The reason for this is because it's taking about 10 seconds for the form to load each time it's opened due to unnecessary re-querying.

Here is an example of what I have as a combo box source and what I've done.

I've put the query, connection, etc... in a module and call it on the login form - i don't get any errors but the data does not load into the combos.

'In Module
sql = "SELECT DIR_ID, DIR_NM FROM LTC_FBS_DIR ORDER BY DIR_NM ASC"

Creating A Login Screen Without Making Use Of A DataBase?

I am hoping that it's possible to create the login screen using only a If...Then...Else Statement. If it is possible, I'm probably going about it the wrong way, as it skips the first two conditions and goes straight to the 'Else'.

Implementing Custom Login For MVC?

Oct 29, 2009

I'm new to ASP.NET MVC and need abit of advice on how to implement the following.The site is a heavily used site with roughly 200 users internally (intranet). We use forms authentication hitting a SQL Server DB (not windows integrated).

Some actions are protected, some are viewable by anyone and some are viewable by both - so if theres a logged in user they see their stuff from the DB, otherwise they see a temporary profile - much like StackOverflow.

How would I go about implementing a security model for this scenario? Can I reuse the existing framework in ASP.NET MVC and use the authorization filters?

SQL Statement Error - Setup A Basic Login Screen

Mar 14, 2012

I'm trying to build my first program and I've run into a few problems with SQL. I have a database with customers and employees (among other things) and I'm trying to set up a basic login screen. Users log in with their EmployeeID (primary key) This part deals with logging in for the first time. It checks the database for a user with that ID and grabs the password. If the password is not empty / null, it shows a message box and stops there. If the password is empty/null it is meant to confirm and then update the new password. This is where my understanding ends. Debugging shows the error is definitely in the SQL update, but I can't see any errors...
