Login Control Styling Convert to Template

If you are looking for an easy way to style the Login Control and don’t want to use all the built-in control properties because you want unfettered access to all the elements that make up the Login Control all you have to do is the following.

  1. Open the ascx or aspx page which holds the Login Control.
  2. Switch to design view.
  3. Right-click the actual Login Control on the design surface and in the context menu select “Convert to Template”.

Visual Studio will automatically add the “LayoutTemplate” element to the Login Control markup and populate it with all the controls and elements that made up the control as it was setup at the time of conversion.
You now have access to everything you need to extensively style the Login Control to your liking.
