Hello Phil and Eric,
I'm not quite sure whether this approach will work out for you guys, I mean it solves the multi threading not being allowed problem, however a call to Login() will be made eventually, when using AuthenticateUser(). However, if I got Phil's use case scenario properly, it looks like he just needs to perform a check whether the entered credentials are valid, in order to display the results (in other words, you don't actually need to have the user as a logged in user, you want to perform a username/password check). Please do not hesitate to correct me if I'm wrong in assuming the previous statement, but if that's the desired functionality, wouldn't ValidateUser() serve you better?
