Hi,

I would like to build a Windows Form application with login, based on Single Sign On principals. So I want to use my same Windows Domain username/password to login and shows some value to start with.

Only I can't find allot on the internet about this topic or on codeproject. Does anyone got some tips?

Thanks in advance!

Have a look at John's article

User Login For WinForm Applications[^]

Basically, the magic is in these lines

    
WindowsIdentity  identity = WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent();
WindowsPrincipal principal = new WindowsPrincipal(identity);

That will get you the current logged on user. You can then test for group membership and grant or deny access to resource based on membership

    WindowsIdentity  identity = WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent();
    WindowsPrincipal principal = new WindowsPrincipal(identity);
    if (principal.IsInRole("Administrator")
    {
        // Grant access to some Admin resource
    }

Try googling 'Winforms Windows Authentication' for more references
