password attempts



have a username and opassword text boxes and one login button. When I
type password it checks three times weather my username and password
is correct or not. After 3 failed attempts it gives me message that
Notify your administrator.

I used form Authnication. How can I count weather user attempts 3
times. My username and password is stored in database

The easiest way is to set up a session variable and increment:

Session("failedAttempts") = int.Parse(Session("FailedAttempts")) + 1;

You can then disable the account in the database when this hits three and
any time they try to log in after that kicks them.

A more full method is to have failed attempts in the database and increment
each time they fail, reset to 0 if succesful. If you like this model, the
easiest way to get it is to use the ASP.NET built in membership model. It
automatically does this for you.
