Serializing Session variables. Cuts off after a given length????

I've have been trying to serialize an array of objects. I can
serialize and set a session variable and retrieve it successfully for
a serialize string of any length within the contents of a single

$_SESSION['a'] = serialize($b); // strlen($a) = 120,011
print unserialize($_S ESSION['a'])
But if I set a session variable and then try to access it on another
page the session variable is always truncated at 67,789 in length. So
the unserialize function cannot correctly interrupt the variable. Why
are my serialized session variables truncated at 67,789???

Why are you serializing the array? You can just do a $_SESSION['a'] =

Data is automatically serialized when it is inserted into a SESSION. So
the session variable really has a serialized serialized array.

I don't know if not serializing the array before you store it will
help, but it's worth a shot.

Hi All, Just wondering how you go about changing the value of a session cookie via javascript? I have a PHP page that sets a session cookie when it first loads. I'd like to be able to change the value of that session cookie in response to a button click in a form, without resubmitting the page. For some reason, the following doesn't seem to work:

Hi guys. I've come across a problem when I tried to serialize a class into xml, only to discover that the parent class's XML Serialization properties weren't included in the output xml. Actually, the class I'm serializing is two steps down in the inheritance ladder. It's got a parent class which also has a parent class :( All those classes in the hierarchy are Xml Serializable, and I'd think that it should be obvious that all...

Hello, First I want to refer to the problem "WebRequest : execute a button" of a few days ago. The way I solved it, I loose my session, and as a consequence my session variables. I don't want to keep those variables, as an alternative, as ViewState variables because I don't want to transfer to many hidden fields. This is the code I use :

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.. I'm familiar with use of...

I've come from the old ASP camp where session variables were not used. When i started using ASP.NET in 2001, I started using them again because it was ok from what I'd read. I've been merrily using Session variables for three years now and i'm entering a project with my new boss who has never quite come around that session variables are ok. What's the concensus here. How can i convince him that they are ok in ASP.NET. OR
