namespace samplecookieless
	/// <summary>
	/// Summary description for login.
	/// </summary>
	public class login : System.Web.UI.Page
		protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox TextBox1;
		protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.Label Label1;
		protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button Button1;
		private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
			// Put user code to initialize the page here

		#region Web Form Designer generated code
		override protected void OnInit(EventArgs e)
			// CODEGEN: This call is required by the ASP.NET Web Form Designer.
		/// <summary>
		/// Required method for Designer support - do not modify
		/// the contents of this method with the code editor.
		/// </summary>
		private void InitializeComponent()
			this.Button1.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.Button1_Click);
			this.Load += new System.EventHandler(this.Page_Load);


		private void Button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
			if(TextBox1.Text != "go")
				Label1.Text = "Nononono! Type in \"go\", and press the button. The order DOES count! :)";

			Session["cool"] = "piglet";
