State Management :: Get New Session Cookie In IE7?
Oct 22, 2010
We have a local homepage, which connect to our production security environment. When I need to test my site in test environment, I need to get fresh cookie (not the one that was sent to me via production security service, when I opened IE with local homepage).
I am getting fresh cookie fine in Mozilla; but in IE I always have production cookie, and this disables my testing. What I should fix here?
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 asp.net create a new session state cookie each time I start debugging?
I need to make my asp.net session cookie as secure but whenever i check user authentication and after that i am trying to set cookie to true then my session lost my user information and so it always redirect login page. I am settings user to HttpContext.Current.Session["user"] and check every time, is user is valid and if valid then move ahead. but before that i make my asp.net session cookie as true.
but after that i observe that somehow "Session_Start" event gets called.
I would like to change ASP.NET session cookie name "ASP.NET_Sessionid" to some other name. I specified <sessionState cookieName="MyCookieName" />. When I use fiddler to view response header, I can see "MyCookieName" with random generated number under cookie section, however, ASP.NET_SessionId also exist there.
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(www.XXX.com/process.aspx), 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 www.XXX.com/process.aspx 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?
If I have two "webroles" (azure), that are NOT using a shared custom state provider, is the "Session.SessionID" be the same in both?It would make sense ,considering that both get the same cookie (because are in the same domain) and have the same machineKey, but I'm not sure
We have a web app running .net 1.1 that users must login to access (uses FormsAuthentication). At one point, the user submits a form that is handled by a separate web app on the same website but in a different directory (running .net 2.0 and not requiring authentication). When the user submits the form and is redirected to this other page they have some options including returning to the previous web app.
We need our users to stay logged in to the first web app so they do not have to log in again when returning. This works fine on 3 out of four computers, but the fourth computer is asked to log in when they hit the return button (by reviewing the active cookies we see that when it returns to the original web app, the FormsAuthentication cookie is missing)
why this cookie would disappear on one machine but not the others? I am going through IE settings now but the machine has the problem in IE and Chrome (not sure if this would be a shared setting) If it is an IE setting is there a way to make this work without requiring the user to change their settings and without switching to cookieless sessions?
Here is the authentication part of web.config
And if it makes a difference, the redirect and form action property use a the full path, would using a relative path likely change anything?
(i) I have a simple application where I am getting data from a textbox and storing it in a cookie. I noticed that unless I set the Autopostback value of the textbox to TRUE, nothing is stored. Does anyone know why this is the case?
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.
We are using asp.net 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
I read the solutioin for this error, at the following link :http://forums.asp.net/p/1046935/1576341.aspxbut I am still not clear what exactly causes the error. I have two doubts :1. Can anyone please elaborate a bit on this issue, with any example ????2. Is there any drawback of this approach ?
I want to make a cookie that contains a list and then i want to be able to get the information from the list by entering the list items specific key value. I quickly made a test application to see if it works or not and the code that im posting below is Not working
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); Response.SetCookie(cookie);
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?
I am developing a asp.net 3.5 web site. Cookie is used to store username when site user logins in the site.This works well on my local computer when I'm debugging it with Visual Studio.But when I publish the site and upload it to the server, cookie could not store username.
My code is as below:
HttpCookie loginState = new HttpCookie("loginState",email);
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
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).
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 requests.how I can debug the app to see what cookies its getting. How do I look at the actual cookie that is passed to .net?
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?
