mikeMy name is Mike Vallotton, as you may have surmised from the title of my blog. To the left is a picture of me when I was younger, more attractive, and in need of a haircut.

I’ve been a software developer for close to 15 years now, and hopefully I’ve learned enough along the way to pass along something useful.

I work pretty much exclusively in .NET these days, and I also do extensive Sharepoint development, which I love to hate or hate to love, or something.

When I have the time (ha!), I play around with Android, and do some actual Java development from time to time, too.

You can find me on Twitter, Linked In, Facebook, or hit me up on email.

    I am working through your custom windows authentication form in order support an NHS client’s requirement. So I will let you know how I get on. I also have love/ hate relationship with SharePoint; although I am finding SharePoint 2010 very hospitable. VS2010 even supports it directly which is refreshing. Yep I used code in Java (netbeans & Eclipse/MyEclipse) and briefly worked with one of the uber dev leads (Rob) in the Spring Source team on a JavaServer Faces project.
    Incidently, Rob told me the other day that the company headed by Rod (the Rocket scientist) was sold to VMWare..

  • Hi Mike,

    I was looking for Custom Login page and authenticating with AD and your article is exactly what I needed. Thanks for posting.

    I have one question. We have two types of Users. Travel agents with ID/Password stored in ASPNetDB and Employees stored in AD. I am currently able to authenticate Travel agents using the SQLRoleProvider.

    Can I use the same login page to authenticate employees as well? I was hoping to add a radio button list on the page. The user will have to select “Employee” or “Hotel” and enter their info for authentication.

    Do you think this can be done?
