    Always Use Display Name - Never UserName

    I'm testing Cute Chat to see if I want to buy it for my websites. I've incorporated Cute Chat into an asp.net membership website. However, I NEVER want the users to see the Username since this is used for login to the website. Is there a way to always prompt for a Display Name when entering a chat room and ALWAYS use THAT in the chat rooms - NEVER the username? It's OK to use the username in the database.
     
    Here is the global.asax code I'm currently using.
     
    1. <%@ Application Language="C#" %>  
    2. <%@ Import Namespace="CuteChat" %>  
    3.   
    4. <script runat="server">  
    5.   
    6.     void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e) {  
    7.         if (!Roles.RoleExists("Administrator")) Roles.CreateRole("Administrator");  
    8.   
    9.         ChatProvider.Instance = new AspNetChatProvider();  
    10.         ChatSystem.Start(new AppSystem());  
    11.           
    12.     }  
    13.   
    14.     static private string CuteChatConnectionStringConfigName = "SQL2008_355184_poetrysoupConnectionString";  
    15.       
    16.     public string GetConnectionString(string reserved)  
    17.     {

    Re: Always Use Display Name - Never UserName

    Well, I just created a Display Name that was a combination of a users first name, last name, and id. This created a unique but identifiable Display Name that replaced the UserName. This solved my problem.
