How to Display Last Login Date for a User in ASP.NET

If you are using Forms Authentication and want to find the last login date of a registered user, here's how to do so. In the Login_Authenticate event, use the following code just before authentication the user:


protected void Login1_Authenticate(object sender, AuthenticateEventArgs e)


MembershipUser mu = Membership.GetUser(Login1.UserName);

DateTime dt = mu.LastLoginDate;

Session["lastlogindt"] = dt;

// Then authenticate the user here (e.Authenticate = true)



Protected Sub Login1_Authenticate(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As AuthenticateEventArgs)

Dim mu As MembershipUser = Membership.GetUser(Login1.UserName)

Dim dt As DateTime = mu.LastLoginDate

Session("lastlogindt") = dt

' Then authenticate the user here

End Sub
