Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,

Thread: how to verify info is true or false

    how to verify info is true or false

    Good people, my second post here as a newbie.

    Warning: this is a cheap question.

    How can check that the following code is returning True or False?

    If VERIFY_USER(Session("userName"), Session("userPassword")) = TrueThen
    Response.Redirect("default.aspx")
    Else
    Response.Redirect("Biz.aspx")
    EndIf

    Thanks much

    ummm. if it's true it will direct you to default.aspx, was that a trick question or something?

    no, it isn't a trick question. I warned that it is a cheap question

    Actually, what I wanted to accomplish is this:

    default.aspx is the login page.
    Biz.aspx is the page I want to go to if login is successful.

    However, something appears to be wrong somwhere because if verify_user(..) is true, I get sent to login page instead of biz page.

    I did response.write and I was getting username/password.

    So, I thought there is another way of verifying that Verify_user(...) is true or false

    Again, sorry for the cheap question but it isn't a trick question, it is a silly question.

    You should use == instead off = in
    If VERIFY_USER(Session("userName"), Session("userPassword")) = True then

    sooooo == TRUE

    because if you do not VERIFY_USER(Session("userName"), Session("userPassword")) will get the value true and this will return nothing
    because it's not a function so probaly false

    good luck newbie..

    are you saying...

    ...that the code should be:
    If VERIFY_USER(Session("userName"), Session("userPassword")) == TrueThen
    Response.Redirect("default.aspx")
    Else
    Response.Redirect("Biz.aspx")
    End If
    That can't be right!

    BTW: I am using VB, not C#
