Visual Studios 2010, ASP.NET and logging in

Postby SCRawl » 2012-02-13 02:51pm

I recently graduated with a diploma in computer programming, and while looking for work I've been expanding my knowledge a bit. My first project, a C# desktop application, came off pretty well, and now I'm trying my hand at a web application using Visual Studio 2010 (I learned 2008, so it's new in this respect).

There seems to be a very nice built-in facility for creating a simple ASP.NET page, and there's a walkthrough for using it here. But while I have some appreciation of how to code an ASP.NET application -- I'm using C# for the code behind the pages -- I am unable to figure out one of the most basic questions: where is the login information stored? There's no database associated with it (according to the Server Explorer), and it can't be using the Internet to store it, as it worked while I was disconnected.

So where are the login credentials stored? My google-fu has come up dry, and I was hoping that someone here whose expertise exceeds mine -- not difficult, considering how new this is for me -- might point me in the right direction.

Never mind, I found it by poking around. It does use a database -- ASPNETDB.MDF if anyone wanted to know -- but it doesn't explicitly show a connection to it.
