Hi all

I am building a desktop application.I have made a log in form.
First i login to a user and than without log out i close the application.Again i clicked on the application file .exe it is again asking to enter the username and password.

Is there any session like thing is there to store the token id.So that i can easily know the user is logged out or not like in web application.

Please suggest how i will solve this problem.

Thanks in advance.

No there is no session support in Windows forms. Yuu can build your own support though by storing information in a database / file.
Not fool proof but could work.

No. Session is a web concept.

The easiest way to do this would be to handle the main form Closing event, and log off then.

What should i write in the closing event?
Please share the code or give some link so that i can understand this and implement this.

Along the lines of "if user logged in, log him out"?
I can't give you the code, as I have no idea what login system you have come up with...
