In my AccountController's LogIn method, since I've added Role based authentication to the site,
I wanted to use User.IsInRole( "Admin" ) to check for an Admin role.
Of course that doesn't work!
So instead, I had to do this:
decimal id = Identity.LookupId( details.MemberName, db );
Identity Id = Identity.Load( id, db );
if( Id.RoleIndex == 1 )
That's two hits to the database, but I do those two hits on almost every page so I know that the server can easily handle the task at hand.
Why was I interested in this:
Well we have two different controllers and I wanted the Admin role to be sent to the AdminController and normal Users to be sent to the BackOfficeContoller.
