I have a login page login.aspx, which has username and password fields, as well as an important little checkbox. Login is handled in the account controller login action.



[SuppressMessage("Microsoft.Design", "CA1054:UriParametersShouldNotBeStrings", Justification =

                "Needs to take same parameter type as Controller.Redirect()")]

        public ActionResult LogOn(string userName, string password, string returnUrl,

            bool sendStoredInfo)


            if (!this.ValidateLogOn(userName, password))


                return View();



            this.FormsAuth.SignIn(userName, false);


            if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(returnUrl))


                return Redirect(returnUrl);




                return RedirectToAction("Index", "Home");



Basically, if the line return Redirect(returnUrl); fires, then it will end up in another controller, the OpenIDController, and it is that situation where the sendStoredInfo bool becomes important. But the problem is I have no reference to it when I'm in the OpenIDController. How can I send this value across?

Change the call to:

return RedirectToAction("LoginFailed", new { sendFlag = sendStoredInfo });

The controller action method signature could be something like:

public ActionResult LoginFailed(bool sendFlag)
