use a wizard created page as an example.

the basic gist is to add the checkbox for remember me and auto log in, set the checked value to 1 for each.

add set cookie behaviors to store the entered Username, Password, and Remember Me values using the remember me element as the trigger. ad another set cookie behavior to store the auto login value as a cookie using the auto login checkbox as a trigger.

then add another Authenticate user behavior using the auto login as the trigger, and use the Username and password cookies as the login values.

If you look at a login page created by the wizard for reference, it will make more sense.

Hi Jason,
thats a beginning. The code from the wizzard was a little bit too much.
No that I know how it is put into the page, I can try to create it on my own.
The most important is to create 3 cookie sorings and 2 user identifications.

1. store username/password
2. store the remember checkbox
3. store the autologin checkbox

I give it a try.
Cheers

Hi Jason,
what, if I want to do it like facebook.de they only got one checkbox.
Do I have to store everything in one cookie?

no, still use the separate cookies, just leave out the remember me cookie, trigger the cookie storage for all values on the auto login option and trigger the auto login authenticate user behavior on the auto login cookie.

Hi Jason,
I made it work.
Got to fix some things.
If I set the autologin it is nessecary to use the right login data. if not, on the failed page you need to delete the stored wrong cookies.
And, you also need to create a reCHECK the auto login if the user dont want it anymore.
So i decided just to keep the remember me check box.

I think, the biggest problem is the storing of the password on the machine.

- when i used the autologin i sored the password cryped to the cookie and dont use an crypting in the authentification.

- with the remember me checkbox I need to store the password encryped to the machine, thats dangerous.

thanks so much to help me understand that thing.
Cheers,
Denis

well ,storing the encrypted password in the cookie is safer than storing the un encrypted password.

if you are using one of the 2 way encryption methods, they would need to know the salt value in order to decrypt the cookie.

using SHA1, that is a one way encryption method so cannot be decrypted.
