    Hi ,
      I have a secure application in my website.I am using a button in my menu to logout. But it is not logging the user out. After I logout it still shows the status as login and the username.The code for onclick for button is









    If I use the loginview control in the page it works and shows the status as logout. But the problem is the pages I previously visited shows up(probably from cache I think). the cache for the page is turned off.
    Can you tell me what code does the logout button in loginview has so I can use the same code in my menu button. Also how do I turn off the page caching.

    Hello Priya Ramesh,

    The ASP.NET control LoginView uses the same method as you use FormsAuthentication.SignOut(); The problem about which you are talking about generally occurs when you use caching. You could try using
    FormsAuthentication.RedirectToLoginPage(); right after FormsAuthentication.SignOut(); This will redirect the user to the login page and he/she should not be able to access the previous url if re type the url in the browser bar.
