Application #98. Create a Login Dialog Box

This sample application demonstrates how to create a login dialog box to authenticate users and restrict access to selected features of the application. The user must first log in, within three attempts, using either custom authentication or Windows authentication. After the user logs in, his role membership is checked. If the user is a member of either the custom Managers group or the built-in Administrators group, the main form displays a list of the application’s users from the Users.XML file; otherwise, the main form is left blank.
