Finally getting the hang of the basics in ASP. OK, now for some real questions...

I started by using the AppBuilder to create an app with a log in page and a couple of search/grid and maintenance pages.

First thing was figuring out how to get the Login page to go to a MainMenu page. Sorted. Now...

1. After the user logs in successfully and is sent to the Main Menu page, how does one prevent them from going -back- to the Login screen as I have seen on other web sites. Is there a -simple- way to disable the back button on the browser on this MainMenu page?

2. I there a way to track how many times the user has attempted to log in so that if they have tried and failed 3 times, they are sent to the failed page and some -other- action (like alerting someone) is taken. In short: is there a way to track the number of attempts?

3. Is there a way to -automatically- assign the same style/formatting that is automagically given to the pre-generated pages when I insert my own pages? How?

4. Is there a shortcut to deleting columns in a grid? IOW it looks like you can delete multiple rows in one go, but not columns.

TIA,

---JC

Hi,

#1: I'm not sure what you mean. On which Website did you see this?

#2: Yes, there is a way to do this, though I don't have an example. You may need to spend little more time with CCS or ASP to implement it and/or search these forums for hints and tips. I think that you will find some related discussions here.

#3: If I understand you correctly, I think that the answer is "no". The themes (if this is what you mean) are currently form/component specific, so the page itself doesn't have any style. It's only when you create forms or pages that include forms then you can select a theme.

#4: Position the cursor anywhere within the column you want to delete, then:
a) right-click and select "Delete Column"
b) or click on the Delete Column icon in the toolbar, as shown in the tutorial:

Some quick ideas for you.

1) Create a session variable in Globa.asa and init it some value (ex 0),
When the user logs in incriment this var. If the login fails, send them to a
loginFailed.Asp page. In this page code a session.abandon (kills the app).
If a user successfully logs in and tries to go back to the login page, check
the value of the session variable (or perhaps use the bult in USER_ID
variable which would be none NULL once a user logs in) at the top of the
login page and redirect them to a different page. This will work even if
they click on the Back Browser button,
2) See number one above. I do this and I call my session var -
LoginAttempts. What we do is have a table in the DB that contains certain
System Wide variables, like Login Attempts. This is handy in that you don't
need to code the max number in your asp pages,
3) Oops, can't help too much here as I am still new to CCS. My quick look at
this is THEMES (did a search in Help for Style Sheets as well as Themes). I
think the answer would be Themes. There is a good discussion in Help about
this, but I might be on the wrong track,
4) Upper right corner of the Tool Bar - Third Button from the right. This
allows you to delete a column that the cursor is in.

Hope this helps.
