State Management :: How To Serialize An Object Into Cookie

Apr 1, 2010

I had an xml-serialization which worked fine, but as I have just knew it doesn't work in Opera browser. I think, it's security rules don't allow to write to cookies xml-content.What can I do? Can I use binary serialization or something else?

State Management :: Unable To Serialize The Session State In 'StateServer' And 'SQLServer' Mode

Dec 12, 2010

I am new to .net 4.0 and am using EF Model and SessionState Mode=SqlServer and I am getting this error below:

Unable to serialize the session state. In 'StateServer' and 'SQLServer' mode, ASP.NET will serialize the session state objects, and as a result non-serializable objects or MarshalByRef objects are not permitted. The same restriction applies if similar serialization is done by the custom session state store in 'Custom' mode.

I checked the stack trace and its complaining about

[assembly: global::System.Data.Objects.DataClasses.EdmSchemaAttribute()]
[assembly: global::System.Data.Objects.DataClasses.EdmRelationshipAttribute("PoplarGroveModel", "tblMenuRole", "tblMenu", global::System.Data.Metadata.Edm.RelationshipMultiplicity.Many, typeof(PoplarGroveDataModel.Menu), "tblRole",


I marked it as serializable but then it complains about System.Data.Objects.ObjectContext is not marked as serializable and hence throws the same error.

State Management :: Remove Item (Cookie) From Basket (Cookie Collection)?

Sep 8, 2010

I am busy building a shopping cart with cookies. I have datalist which I populate from the cookies with a delete button next to each cookie


Now the problem is that when I hit the delete / remove button to expire the cookie, what happens when repopulating the datalist is that it shows the original cookie with all it's values as well as a new entry where all the values are blank.

State Management :: Updating Cookie / Change The Value In A Cookie?

May 10, 2010

I want to change the value in a cookie:
HttpCookie hc = new HttpCookie("HiddenColumns");
hc.Value = customView.HiddenFields;
hc.Expires = DateTime.Now.AddDays(365);

Or this way:

Response.Cookies["HiddenColumns"].Value = customView.HiddenFields;;
Response.Cookies["HiddenColumns"].Expires = DateTime.Now.AddDays(365);

But when I retrieve the cookie value, it is still old, unless I do postback. I don't want to use Redirect.

State Management :: Serialize/Deserialize A Custom Class In And Out Of A Session

Mar 18, 2011

I'm trying to save a custom class in a session, but it just never gets saved, along with other sessions. Note that my SessionMode = STATESERVER, and i cannot change it to INPROC as per our business requirement. This is my class

public class User : ISerializable
private int _userId;
public int UserId
get { return _userId; }
set { _userId = value; }
//custom class
private TDB.tdbUser _tdbUserDetails;
public TDB.tdbUser tdbUserDetails
get { return _tdbUserDetails; }
set { _tdbUserDetails = value; }
//collection of custom class Sites
private List<Sites> _assignedSites;
public List<Sites> AssignedSites
get { return _assignedSites; }
set { _assignedSites = value; }
public User()
//Constructor code
protected User(SerializationInfo info, StreamingContext context)
this._userId = (int)info.GetValue("_userId", typeof(int));
this._assignedSites = (List<Sites>)info.GetValue("_assignedSites", typeof(List<Sites>));
this._tdbUserDetails = (TDB.tdbUser)info.GetValue("_tdbUserDetails", typeof(TDB.tdbUser));
[SecurityPermission(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.SerializationFormatter)]
void ISerializable.GetObjectData(SerializationInfo info, StreamingContext context)
info.AddValue("_userId", this._userId);
info.AddValue("_assignedSites", this._assignedSites);
info.AddValue("_tdbUserDetails", this._tdbUserDetails);

The calling code is just this: (User)HttpContext.Current.Session["TDBUSER"];

State Management :: Asp Create New Session State Cookie Each Time On Debugging?

Jan 21, 2011

I'm using the following line of code to display the number of users currently logged on:

lblNoOfUsers.Text = Membership.GetNumberOfUsersOnline().ToString()

I'm still debugging my application so it's on the local server. As I debug and stop then debug again, eventually lblNoOfUsers.text turns to "0" instead of "1", even as I'm navigating my application. It only turns to "1" again if I log out and sign back in. It's almost as though Membership.GetNumberOfUsersOnline my login are referencing two different session states. How is this possible? Does create a new session state cookie each time I start debugging?

State Management :: Cookie Value Disappeared?

Feb 13, 2011

We are using and 3.5 framework. I have a process that sets the value of a cookie named "mystaffid" in the Default.aspx code behind page. This holds the unique ID of the internal user (intranet). Now when I leave one of the web pages to go to another page in the same website I am getting the error "Input string was not in a correct format. " on the 3rd line below. how the cookie disappears? Also, this is happening in the Page_Load of the master page and I am doing the exact same thing in other pages with the same master page and not getting the error. The cookie is set to expire in 1 day when it is set in Default.aspx.

Dim intStaffID As Int32 = 0

If Not Request.Cookies("mystaffid") Is Nothing Then
intStaffID = Convert.ToInt32(Request.Cookies("mystaffid").Value)
End If

State Management :: Cannot Create A Simple Cookie

Feb 28, 2011

Very new to ASP.NET and C# (somewhat knowledgable in PHP) I have an ASP.NET web application and need to manage access to pages based on a 'status' stored in a cookie. I would like to use the following code to create the cookie in a login method.

HttpCookie cookie = new HttpCookie("UserCookie");
cookie.Value = "status"; <-- this will be replaced with a variable once its working
cookie.Expires = DateTime.Now.AddHours(1);

My problem is that the only place I can put this code where it works is in the global.asax Session_Start method. It simply doesn't work anywhere else. I am checking the cookie creation in firefox options and see the ASP.NET_SessionId created but nothing else (This is all running on localhost).

Is the session status somehow interfering with the cookie creation? Do I need to configure something in Web.config? It would appear that the only time I can create a cookie is on Session_Start. Does anyone have any tips, perhaps I am missing something simple?

State Management :: Cookie / It's Cause The Sql Server Update Twice :|

Dec 22, 2010

I have a website of online games and I try to count and show the number of the uniqe visitor per game page, by using Cookies only. (if someone visit after 24hr it will be uniqe visitor too)

the problems is:sometimes (I don't know why), not always, it's update the counter colomn of the game, +2 instead +1, and I don't know why, there isn't any "for loop" etc.. maybe is't because the url rewrite? but it work fine if people enter again the colomn will not update again, the problem is that is update +2 instead +1 (see the code at the bottom)this is my algorithm (something is wrong in this algorithm so don't use it):

1. put the query string in variable (the name of the game) - i'm using url rewite.

2. use this variable for select the game Name (and another information) from the database (and for the cookie I will use the game name from the database and not from the query string to avoid from capital letter problems, because cappital letter for the first word isn't good because words like of, to etc..).

3. for each pageload (there isn't postback in the game page) check if the cookie of the uniqe game exists

4. if not exists, create a cookie for the unique game (the name of the cookie and the his value will be same, because I don't care about it, it's only for check if the cookie exist, and I can't use one cookie for all the games because each time visitor enter the cookie will create for 1 day).

4. after this creation of the cookie try to find if the cookie exist (for cheaking if the user didn't disable the option for cookies)

5. if yes update the database column of the spesific game

the code:

In the end of the page_load - (the GameName is the virable of the name of the game from the database and not from the qury string).


and the update function

State Management :: How To Look At The Actual Cookie That Is Passed To .net

Nov 9, 2010

Our app uses session to keep track of users. We stuff their user id into session on logon. If the browser cache is cleared any refresh to the page is done then the user will see the log out sign - as the app cant get theuser id from session as the aspnet_session cookie wont be present in the request.Firefox works correctly but when I clear the cache on i.e. the session is maintained. The session ID's are the same for multiple I can debug the app to see what cookies its getting. How do I look at the actual cookie that is passed to .net?

State Management :: Session Not Retained / Cookie Not Accessible?

May 21, 2010

I have a website for a simple game. When people sign in their Player ID is stored in a Session variable. I have integrated SMS payments so that my players can buy credits to use to play. This is where the problems start:

To buy credits, players are presented with an .aspx page that holds an IFRAME of the SMS payment proviers form. A code is entered, and the IFRAME POSTS to a URL on the providers server. It is then redirected back to an URL on my server(, where I handle the results (i.e adds credits to th players account if the payment was successfull).

However, the session dies on return.

I tried with cookies, and saves the player ID in a cookie, but when upon return to I cannot read the cookie? I'm checking for if (cookie == null) and it evaluates to TRUE, so the player is redirected to an error page.

How come the cookie cant be read? Is it because the POST is coming from an outside URL? And, what about when I do it with a session variable? Same thing there?
