Retrieving Forms Authentication Cookie

Hi,

Quick question:

I have set a persistent cookie on my login page and have the following
in the web config.

<forms name="BeanAppAuth" loginUrl="Login.aspx" protection="All" />

I know I can do this:

Dim objUserIdentity As FormsIdentity
If User.Identity.IsAuthenticated Then
objUserIdentity = User.Identity
Response.Write(objUserIdentity.Name)
End If

To get the username but how do I do this via the cookie name??
Response.Cookies("BeanAppAuth").Value ??

Thanks

Angela

What are you trying to do? The username is encrypted inside of the cookie,
so the way ASP.NET presents this to your code is to make User.Identity.Name
avaialble as a public API from your page.
