Session state doesn't work

I have put a string into Session and tried to retrieve it on the next page I
visit but the Session appears empty. I have exactly the same spelling for
both adding and retrieving the value:

Session["name"] = "john";

On the next page:

txtName.Text = Session["name"];

I tried it with .ToString() and in an if statement to make sure it has a
value but it always shows as null.

I have not modified IIS in any way since installing it ( and I have checked
that Session is enabled in the IIS console).

This happens in any of the applications I create in Visual Studio .NET 2003.

Can there be anything else preventing me from using Session state?

Are you using a Response.Redire ct after setting the session? If so, take a
look at:

Hi Karl,

no, I am using Server.Transfer to go from page to page within my application.

Both Response.Redire ct and Server.Transfer call Response.End internally,
so you'll have the same problem with either.

Use Server.Execute, instead of Server.Transfer .
That will get rid of your problem.

Thank you for the reply Juan,

but I need to know why this is happening on just my computer. If I type the
same code onto another computer and use Server.Transer or Response.Redire ct
it works fine, and so I assume that there is a problem with the settings on
my machine.

Hi there,

"Cashdeskma c" was trying to help with a problem that has occured on my
computer (thanks Allen!).

I have read the responses from Juan and Karl (thanks also for your
responses) but unfortunately the solutions given do not entirely resolve the
problem.

Yes, when I use Server.Execute instead of Server.Transfer the session state
is maintained. But if I place the appropriate "Response.Redir ect" code in (as
stated in both responses), sessions state is not maintained?
For example, if the following code is entered is the following:
Response.Redire ct("WebForm.asp x", false);

I get the following exception in the browser:
Server Error in '/WebApplication2 ' Application.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Juan,

as Jon pointed out, I posted this in order to solve his problem.

The main issue we have is that when I use Response.Redire ct or
Server.Transfer on MY computer, Session variables are maintained without any
problems. It is only on JON's computer that the issue occurs.

Do you know of any setting on his computer which could be to blame?

Hi,

Just to let you all know that this issue was resolved by either switching
off my zone alarm privacy settings (to allow browsers to accept cookies) or
by changing the "cookieless " setting in the <sessionState of the web.config
file to "true" so that Session state was maintianed through the URL rather
than through cookies.

Thank you all for your help.

Thank you for the reply Juan,

but I need to know why this is happening on just my computer. If I type the
same code onto another computer and use Server.Transer or Response.Redire ct
it works fine, and so I assume that there is a problem with the settings on
my machine.

I have a very odd situation here. I have an administration page, where based on a users permissions, a recordset is called from the SQL server which has a list of paths to "Module Menus". Each of these menus are then placed into the page by calling Server.Execute(rs_Modules("ModulePath")). This works fine for up to 15 "menus" After that, the session variables that were set (not including those called by Global.ASA) are no longer set. ...

I'm having difficulty understanding Session state in ASP.Net. It's almost embarrassing asking this as I've been using ASP since it was first released & it really shouldn't be this hard to use - perhaps I'm just not very smart or perhaps MS is making this too hard for us sql bunnies to understand - I dunno, but I'd really appreciate someone explaining what I'm doing wrong here & perhaps suggest a better approach..

Ok, I know that .net inherently does not share session data across asp.net projects, but is there any decent work around to this. We already have a big chunk of our application using the asp.net session object (using state service). I'd like to start breaking out our functionality into component projects, but I'd like to get this session issue worked out first. Any ideas?? I found this article , but it sounds like kind of a pain.

Hello! I have a problem with SQLSession state on my ASP.NET pages. SQLSession state behaves very different from InProcess session state, which I think is very bad. I can understand some of the differences, e.g that every object you store in SQLSession state have to be serializable, but other differences are very unfortunate.

I have been using the default session state (InProc) and have found that I have been loosing my information after a period of time (normally 20 minutes). Is there anyway to find out how much more time I have on a session? If I do a refresh, does reset the session clock? Do you have have to go to another page to reset the session timeout or will a postback also do it? This is important as we have a few pages that a user

I can't seem to get the session_end event to work? I've tried to update databases in it and response.redirect to someplace else. Nothing works. I load page and leave it for 60 minutes and I know that the session id expired. I used session.abandon and it didn't fire the session_end. How can I test this? What is a good way to test if it's working?

When a user opens a new IE browser window using File-New-Window the integrity of an application which relies on session state is COMPLETELY undermined. Anyone who overlooks the fact that File-New-Window creates an instance of IE in the same process with the same SessionID as the parent window is in big trouble. This fundamentally restricts the usefullness of using session state management. I probably missed it somewhere - can...
