    Remember Me on Login Form


    No problem implementing this feature but wanted to know how you can address the security settings since they are set via the frmLogin. Remember Me bypasses that form so ?
    Looking for ideas of how to accomplish getting the users security clearance using this feature.
    Thanks,

    What is "Remember me on Login Form"? Are you talking about this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPpv12s_gsM?

    Did not spend the time to watch the video to the end but that is just a customization that he did; you would need to take it further if it doesn't match your needs.

    Yes, remember me bypasses the logon screen and opens your main form, supposedly with you security settings. That is the issue. Working on it but no success as of now.
    Easily implement it but the security settings are a different matter. I did open the Login form hidden and copied the username and password to a different table to compare but that's as far as i have got.

    So, if you set your security settings in your Login form, you need to adapt the code to not open the main form directly but the Login one, populate it with the saved credentials and trigger the same code as you would have populate it manually.

    I disagree with the idea behind this.
    Either use a login form for additional security or (better) another approach such as active directory.

    If your database is just used by one person, then why use a login form?
    If it is run in a multi user workplace, then don't allow it to be bypassed

    It's not bypassed, just the luxury of not having to login is all. Security is still in place. Took me a while to figure this out. Very easy to do with no security, not easy with security. It can be turned on and off as they wish.

    I understand how it works and had something very similar over a decade ago.
    I removed the feature as it meant people could login with the credentials of another user on a different workstation...so security was being bypassed.

    If it seems OK for your situation then fine, but I would still avoid it in a multi user environment
