Ask login/password confirmation for specific action

Question asked by acis on May 20, 2008
Hi all,

I want to ask a login confirmation before performing some actions. For example, if the admin forgot to log out before going to lunch, I want to be sure that no one will use is session to delete some users.

So I need to ask user to type login/password and then the action will be done.

I have done a component that handle this but I have a little problem : how to authenticate a user without changing the current user ? I just want to try if the login informations are valid or not. I don't want to do a real authentication.

Is there a method to do that ?
