Currently the only way to retrieve the real password when a user logs in with a saved userid/password is to do a lookup on userid in the users table. A future version of FoxWeb will deal with this issue.

Sorry, After further testing I have found the problem. The Auth.Password is returning the encrypted password not the actual password that the user used. When the user logs in ( not automatically) the Auth.Password is returning the unencrypted password. Is there a way to get the unencrypted password when the user is automatically logged in???
Thanks again...Ron Stahl

I have a site where I am useing the authentication object. The problem I am having is that when a user check the box to automaticly login the next time. What is happing is when the user return the are automaticly login ( as expected ) but the Auth.UserID and the Auth.Password objects are returning blank. I am useing this to lookup the users "real name" and member ID in another table. If their is a better way of doing this please let me know.
