Hi i'm doing a project and i need help.

I'm designing a system, whereby am unable to use 2 different login authorities, which are Admin and Non-Admin. I am using VB.NET and Ms. Access and need help for the codes.

I want something like, if i click on admin/non admin (with different passwords) a dialog box pops onto the screen and asks for the password. If the password is correct it should take me to the form i want. Something of this sort please.

Help me with the codes n explanation thanks, ASAP

Hi,

I never used something like that, but I'll try to give you an idee how I would do it.

I should say that the login form is a normal Login form with admin and Non- Admin usernames and passwords.
The logic will be in the Ms- Access database itself.

For example, if there's a Non- Admin login then the database will be Read- Only or allowed to do some changes in that database, for Admin logins then you have full autority to do some changes in that database.

Just a thought.

Ok, thnks...Well am basically just asking whether is it possible to code both admin and non-admin with different passwords and is it possible

Hey i got the solution to this, but i used kind of a tricky style, thnks for your help :P, But if anyone gets better solutions to this lemme know

Hi i basically used the vb 6 format... that is add a textbox on ur form and then add a button, double click the button and write the codes as follows:

dim password as string
password=textbox1.text

if textbox1= "jolly" then
form2.show
else
Messagebox.show ("Invalid password")
end if

In this case the password is jolly. U can drag a label and write username into it then place the textbox besides it. Hope this helps you if u encounter any error let me know, so i could help you. You can use this process without connecting to a database or with (/both)

CORRECTION USE THE FOLLOWING NOT THE ABOVE:


Pass1 = txt1.Text

If Pass1 = "jolly" Then

MessageBox.Show("WELCOME")

Form1.Show()

Me.Hide()

Else

txt1.Clear()

MessageBox.Show("INVALID PASSWORD, TRY AGAIN")

txt1.Focus()

End If

Pass1 = txt1.Text

If Pass1 = "jolly" Then

MessageBox.Show("WELCOME")

Form1.Show()

Me.Hide()

Else

txt1.Clear()

MessageBox.Show("INVALID PASSWORD, TRY AGAIN")

txt1.Focus()

End If

maybe this help you

imports system.data.oledb //this can be used in ms access


private sub BtnLogin_Click() <- Your BtnLogin

dim con as new oledbconnection("your connection string here")
dim cmd as OledbCommand = new OledbCommand("Select * from YourDataTable where Username = '" & txtUsername.text &"' and Password = '" & txtPassword.text & "',con)

dim sdr as OledbDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader() 'the sdr will read your command and search for it in the database or in your ms access file

if Combobox.text = "Admin" then 'you must use a combobox with items "Admin" and "Non-Admin"

if sdr.Read() = true then
msgbox("Login Successfully")
else
msgbox("Login Failed")
end if

elseif Combobox.text = "non-admin" then

if sdr.Read() = true then
msgbox("Login Successfully")
else
msgbox("Login Failed")
end if

else
//put your codes here
end if

End Sub
