Using ConnectSession.authenticator.logout()

Avatar

Level 2

Hi there

I'm following the LCCS tutorials,and I'm on the second one where you create a login screen. I've added a password box so that I can log in as myself, the developer or as a "guest" (who is autopromoted to participant because of the room settings)

I've also added a "logout" button to the main application that does the following

protected function logout():void

{
                cSession.authenticator.userName="";
                cSession.authenticator.password="";
                cSession.logout();
                showLogin();
}

so that a person can log out then log back in as another user.

The problem is that it works fine when I log in the first time but when I logout then log in the second time, I get a "Invalud Username or Password" error.. is there something I'm forgetting to do ... or am doing wrong with the logout() ?

Would I possibly be better off creating the ConnectSessionAuthenticator in script rather than MXML and creating it explicitly each time?

One line you should change in your LoginDialog is

if (password.length>0){

connectSession.authenticator.password=userPasswordField.text;

}else {

connectSession.authenticator.password = null ;

}

i.e. also the set the password to null in case you are getting in as guest(else it will be taken as "" ).

And then try with IE or some other browser clearing the cache. Then you can login as a different user the second time.

Thanks

maybe i can do something in my showLogin() function like..

                // Setting up Connect Session Conatainer in Script
                var theConnectSessionContainer:ConnectSessionContainer = new ConnectSessionContainer();
                theConnectSessionContainer.id="newSession";
                theConnectSessionContainer.roomURL="https://connectnow.acrobat.com/myUserName/mysecondroom";
                theConnectSessionContainer.autoLogin=false;
                theConnectSessionContainer.authenticator=new AdobeHSAuthenticator();

possibly?

Your stuff looks ok, can you send me a complete test code where this login fails so that I point out any mistakes or errors.

hi,

When you log back in do you reset your cSession.authenticator.userName && cSession.authenticator.password. You seem to set it to null.

So this should work for you,

// Setting up Connect Session Conatainer in Script
                var theConnectSessionContainer:ConnectSessionContainer = new ConnectSessionContainer();
                theConnectSessionContainer.id="newSession";
                theConnectSessionContainer.roomURL="https://connectnow.acrobat.com/myUserName/mysecondroom";
                theConnectSessionContainer.autoLogin=false;
               // theConnectSessionContainer.authenticator=new AdobeHSAuthenticator();

               var authenticator:AdobeHSAuthenticator = new AdobeHSAuthenticator();

               authenticator:userName = "login Dialog.userNameField.text";

               authenitcator.password = "login Dialog.passwordField.text";

Thanks

I realized after I suggested this that I have no idea how to create the actual UI of the room if I create the connect session conatiner in script... specifically, the roster, webcam and the whiteboard...im guessing there's an example of that somewhere in the myriad of examples though...

<rtc:ConnectSessionContainer width="100%" height="90%" 
     autoLogin="false"
     id="cSession"
     roomURL="https://connectnow.acrobat.com/myAccountName/mysecondroom">
    
     <rtc:authenticator>
          <rtc:AdobeHSAuthenticator/>
     </rtc:authenticator>

     <mx:HBox width="100%" height="100%">
          <mx:VBox width="25%" height="100%">
               <rtc:Roster width="100%" height="50%"/>
               <rtc:WebCamera width="100%" height="50%"/>
          </mx:VBox>
          <rtc:SharedWhiteBoard id="whiteboard" width="75%" height="100%"/>
     </mx:HBox>
</rtc:ConnectSessionContainer>

I'll attach the two files here from my FlexBuilder 3 App.

LiveSupport.mxml and LoginDialog.mxml, both right in /src

You may not find examples specific to create all of whiteboard, webcam , roster in a script. But you can find codes for creating webcampublisher, subscriber , sharedproerty and so on using script in examples.

The process for creating pods in scripts is more or less same.

For e.g. for roster something like

if(!_roster) {

_roster = new Roster();

_roster.id = id;

addChild(_roster); // addchild subscribes the pod to the network

}

Similarly for other pods, its just you would create and add UIComponents in flex normally.

Hope this helps

Thanks

Hi,

I ran your codes and it works perfectly fine for me.

I don't know if there is some caching issue ? Which browser you are using?

I logged in and out multiple times with ease. Try connecting to player 9 src and debug and see whats the username and password you are getting when you are hitting the error.

Otherwise,Your code looks and works fine to me.

Thanks

That was it! Firefox was caching the SWF, and I needd to null out that password. Works like a charm. Spike successful! Thanks for all your help
