The CreateUserWizard is used to render a registration form for new users. Upon registering the details are added to the website database. This control uses the ASP.NET website Administration Tool in the background to perform its function.
The LoginStatus control is a very simple control, all it does is display a link which is different depending on whether the user is logged in or logged out. If a user is logged in then it displays a Log Out link and vice versa.
The ASP.NET LoginName controls is also very simple. All it does is display the username of the user on the page when the user is authenticated. If the user is not logged in then it displays nothing on the page
This control is used by a user to change his/her current password. In order to change your password you must provide the current password. You must also type in your new password two times to makes sure there is no mistake.
The LoginView control has two templates, the anonymous template and the LoggedIn template. You can modify the content of this templates to display different content to the authenticated user and different content to anonymous user of the website
In some cases you may want to protect sections of your website for a particular group of people. For example in a university website you may have two different roles, one just for lecturers and another role for other staff members.
Remember we used the CreateUserWizard to render a registration form on our website. This control has many events and in this video we’ll use one of its event, the CreatedUser which is raised after a user has been created
