just to give some inputs:

in your form you need to have 2 txt field:
1. txtlogin
2: txtpwd


Private Sub txtpwd_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
If KeyAscii = vbEnter Then
    If Len(Trim(txtlogin)) > 0 And Len(Trim(txtpwd)) > 0 Then
        If CheckPwd(txtlogin, txtpwd) = "ok" Then
            MsgBox "Password ok"
            MsgBox "Wrong password or Login not found."
        End If
        MsgBox "Login and password should not be blank"
    End If
End If
End Sub

Private Function CheckPwd(cLogin As String, cPwd As String)
'in my case i will use dao. you probably using ado just convert it
Dim rs As Recordset, ret As String
Set rs = opendatabase("c:\temp\login.mdb").openrecordset("select * from tbllogin where ucase(trim(logname)) = '" & UCase(Trim(cLogin)) & "'")
If rs.RecordCount <> 0 Then
    If UCase(Trim(rs("pword"))) = UCase(Trim(cPwd)) Then
        ret = "ok"
        ret = "wrong"
    End If
    ret = "wrong"
End If
rs.Close: CheckPwd = ret
End Function

'This is just to give you an idea. For sure there are lot of ways of doing it...



Just wanted to thank you for the code - This was incredibly helpful.

I set up a similar situation and thought I'd share my code.


  • I have not included a keyPress Sub but did it from a button click instead.
  • I call from the current database instead of a different one.
  • The recordset is exited as soon as possible, and then any conditions not concerning the recordset are administered.

I could have used a function, but this was a quickie. Most likely will update this to include keypress as well as button click in which both subs call a function.

The table accessed (AdminUser) contains a primary key called 'UserID' [text] and a 'Password' field.

My txtBoxes are named txtUser, and txtPassword

Lots of comments - hope it helps anyone.

Private Sub cmdMaintenanceSwitchboard_Click()
    'check for null password
    If IsNull(Trim(txtUser)) Then
        MsgBox "User Name required.", vbExclamation
        Exit Sub
    End If
    'check for null password
    If IsNull(Trim(txtPassword)) Then
        MsgBox "Password required.", vbExclamation
        Exit Sub
    End If

i hve maked a login form but when i click on a cmd buttom nothing is displayed.

private sub Cmdlogin_Click

if Txt1.text="admin" and Txt2.text="admin" then

end if

end sub


what is the code for log in that when you put the password it is already in an asterisk form ..
thnak you

Im having trouble replying on this thing. Could you please look at the post under this

for that you can click on the text box in which the user will enter the password, and in the little properties table on the side there is a box that says "passwordcharacter". You will see that the box next to it is empty so put an asterick in it. Then you will see that any text in the text box will be written in astericks including the caption of the textbox. There will be one astericks for each letter.


HI i just want an login page code for my library mangement project front end is vb6.0 and back end is access( i dont know wat is front end and back end just iam using both)
