'Show If' validation if incorrect password/username

Hi

I have searched the forums but cannot find a way to do the following.

1. On my login page I have my user name and password fields. If a user accidentally enters a wrong username or password I would like an error message to show after the log in button is pressed.

I know how to do this, I just do not know what to validate against. I have to somehow tell validation toolkit to find a match of the username and the password in the database. Secondly I dont know how this will work because the password in the database if encrypted.

If anyone could explain how i would achieve this I would be very grateful.

this is not done with validation show if.

Set the failed redirect in the security assist authenticate user server behavior to go back to the login page with a query string variable:

login.php?failed=true.


then on the login page add an if statement to show the error:
[php]
<?php if(isset($_GET['falied']) && $_GET['falied'] == "true") { ?>
Incorrrect user name or password
<?php } ?>
