how to get username in login control using membership

Jan 6, 2011

Here I will explain how can we get username and userid of currently logged user in membership.


I am working on application by using login control in at that time I got requirement like getting username and user id of logged in user for that I have written code like this to get logged in user username and userid in membership.

MembershipUser currentUser = Membership.GetUser();
//Get Username of Currently logged in user
string username = currentUser.UserName;
//Get UserId of Currently logged in user
string UserId = currentUser.ProviderUserKey.ToString();

By using above code we can get currently logged user in login control 

Here i written much code like from Membership i am getting currently logged in username  no need to use MembershipUser event to get currently logged in user we have another simple way to get currently logged in username you just define like this in your page
string userName = Page.User.Identity.Name;

Split your username with @ operator like this

string strData = "";
char[] separator = new char[] { '@' };
string[] strSplitArr = strData.Split(separator);
string username=strSplitArr[0]

After split your username as shown above you will get username
