What is the difference between login controls and Forms authentication?

By j Miracle

The difference between login controls and forms authentication.

the difference between login controls and Forms authentication is as below:

    * Forms authentication can be easily implemented using login controls without writing any code.
    * Login control performs functions like prompting for user credentials, validating them and issuing authentication just as the FormsAuthentication class.
    * However, all that’s needs to be done is to drag and drop the use control from the tool box to have these checks performed implicitly.
    * The FormsAuthentication class is used in the background for the authentication ticket and ASP.NET membership is used to validate the user credentials.
