I have a web portal running on my intranet. Now i want to design a windows client in which when user logs in for a particular machine for a day, then if he hits the web portal link then it must not ask to log in with its username and password again. Please suggest and give your views.
Yes, I can. But my portal uses the employeeID as login id with its custom password. but for this i need to make a way out to map employeeID with domain user. But i never used windows authentication. Is there any other way of get around ?
What I am suggesting is that you totally get rid of form based authentication. You should just have windows authentication. This will eliminate all the need to maintain uses in database.
If you are managing roles and rights in database you can either move that to active directory where each role will be transformed to an AD group and based on group you set rights in code. If this is not feasible, keep authentication windows based but have authorization done in code through database tables.
Here[^] is a blog that shows how to implement windows authentication with database based authorization.

A website can always store a cookie on users device and then exchange it to see if he logged in today. If his last visit was from within 24 hours, then show him the content. Otherwise, redirect him to the authentication page.
Reposting the same question, without any additional information in multiple forums.
If it is during painting, then read about the DoubleBuffered property. If it is during processing, check out what a thread is and move the work to a thread. If it is during construction of the form/initial show, then you probably have lots of controls on that form and should try to remove some.

Hi All -
First, I am not a designer. It's really hard for me to come up with a design for my applications. I am not sure if I should use tiles (like windows 8 / 10) or Ribbon Bars or Metro Forms or anything for that matters.
How do people come up with really good designs for the programs?
I do not want my program to look cheesy or generic but professional.
I have looked at different software designs on google but don't see what I can use.
The main thing is:
1. Focus on the main point(s) of your application.
Now for graphic design there are some things that help user's minds take in your information easily and quickly and have a better experience.
Those things boil down to CRAP*
So, think about what you want the user to focus on in your app and then use CRAP as you sketch a drawing out on paper. Finally, turn that into your app.
Thank you greatly for the reply. To be honest, I think I already have CRAP for design.
I will look into the book you mentioned. Basically, my application is content management. It's specific to a certain type of industry and they will be putting in people (in a database)and things that are associated with that person. I have looked at other programs for this and they look generic and come as stock control color winforms. For anyone that thinks they can code is up for a surprise when you want it to look professional and you don't know how to have your software look and feel.
I have a VB.2010 program that has a Setup/Deploy project. It is one of many using the same techniques (MSI file with file exists and launch conditions)
It was been installing fine on all supported windows until now on Windows 10. It still installs fine on Windows 7.
The setup has a file exists condition requirement in a launch condition. This file is definitely on the target PC in the correct folder and is the same file used by several other vb.2010 programs that did get installed ok on this W10 PC but not this program. The message is triggered that the launch condition (file not found).
This has happened on a client's machine and ours.
Any idea why this one program's S/D can't find that file and more important how to fix it.
I have created an application to get the data from bio-metric machine using C# [using Timer]. But it's not stable during its continues working. Please any one help me to design a stable scheduler program in C#.net.
You need to analyse why it's not stable. Is it a problem with the hardware? Are you having threading issues? Having an effective logging and exception handling strategy will be a big step forward for you, as it should help you focus on the causes of issues.
