This may seem like an easy question, but I am new to vb and though I have searched and searched I have come up empty. What I am trying to do is create a piece of software that will give users access to certain things based on their level. almost all of the data is derived from a sometimes connected mssql database. Im am using winforms with the mssql back end.
I want to be able to give admins the ability to create user account, set the level of the new account, and store this info in a db. What I am trying to achieve with this is the ability for the software to be installed on individual machines, but aloow any registered user to access only what the administrators have given them authority to.
I unfortunately dont know, and have been unseccessful in finding proper ways to store, or call the information.
This is probably a bit ambitious for my level of knowledge, but if I could be pointed in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.
I dont currently have any code, because I have been totally frustrated. Probably an easy answer, but I either can't find what I'm looking for, or dont know when Im looking at it.
Thanks in advance for any help. Code snippets or even example downloads would be huge, but I'm willing to work through the tutorials if a link is more your style.
