Creating a Login Page in ASP.NET Web Application Using C# and SQL Server

Are you looking to add a login functionality to your ASP.NET web application? Look no further!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of creating a login page using C# and SQL Server. By the end of this tutorial, you will have a fully functional login page that allows users to securely log in to your web application.

Step 1: Setting up the Database

Before we begin creating our login page, we need to set up our database. We will be using SQL Server for this purpose.

  • Create a new database: Open SQL Server Management Studio and create a new database. You can name it anything you like.
  • Create a table: Within the newly created database, create a table to store user information.

    The table should contain columns for username and password. You can also include additional columns if needed.

Step 2: Designing the Login Page

Now that our database is ready, let’s move on to designing our login page using ASP.NET and C#.

Start by creating a new ASP.NET web application project in Visual Studio. Choose the appropriate template and give your project a name.

In the Solution Explorer, locate the “Default.aspx” file and open it for editing. This file will serve as our login page.

Add the following code inside the <form> tag:

<asp:TextBox ID="txtUsername" runat="server" placeholder="Username"></asp:TextBox>
<br />
<asp:TextBox ID="txtPassword" runat="server" TextMode="Password" placeholder="Password"></asp:TextBox>
<br />
<asp:Button ID="btnLogin" runat="server" Text="Login" OnClick="btnLogin_Click" />

This code adds two textboxes for the username and password, along with a login button. The placeholder attribute adds a hint inside the textboxes for the user.

Step 3: Writing C# Code

Now, let’s add the C# code to validate the user’s credentials against our database.

In the code-behind file (Default.aspx.cs), add the following code:

protected void btnLogin_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    string username = txtUsername.Text;
    string password = txtPassword.Text;

    // Code to validate the username and password against the database goes here

    if (IsValidUser(username, password))
        // Redirect to the home page or any other authenticated page
        // Display an error message
        lblErrorMessage.Text = "Invalid username or password";

private bool IsValidUser(string username, string password)
    // Code to query the database and validate the user's credentials goes here

    // Return true if valid, false otherwise

The btnLogin_Click method is triggered when the user clicks on the login button. It retrieves the entered username and password from the textboxes. You will need to implement your own logic inside IsValidUser method to validate these credentials against your database.

Step 4: Handling Successful Login

If the user’s credentials are valid, we redirect them to the home page or any other authenticated page. To do this, create a new ASPX page (e.g., Home.aspx) and customize it as per your requirements.

To handle successful login, add the following code to the Page_Load method of Home.cs:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (!IsPostBack)
        // Check if the user is authenticated
        if (User.Identity.IsAuthenticated)
            // Display a welcome message
            lblWelcomeMessage.Text = "Welcome, " + User.Name + "!";
            // Redirect to the login page

This code checks if the user is authenticated using User.IsAuthenticated. If they are, it displays a welcome message with their username. Otherwise, they are redirected back to the login page.


Congratulations! You have successfully created a login page in ASP.NET web application using C# and SQL Server. This login functionality will allow users to securely log in to your web application and access authenticated pages.

Feel free to customize and enhance this login page according to your project’s requirements. You can add additional features such as password reset, remember me functionality, or even integrate it with external authentication providers like Google or Facebook.

Happy coding!
