I have a web application which uses a session variable to store the logged in userid. If no user is logged in, of course this variable will be empty and the contents displayed on my website are meant for guests. If there is a user logged in, the user specific controls/access/links will then be a displayed.
I am now having issues with my hosting where on shared application pool, the worker recycle is triggered every 90 minutes, this will clear sessions causing all my users to be logged out. I opted for a dedicated application pool, which got worse because I am only allocated 50MB memory limit and if this is reached, the worker recycle is triggered and I lose my sessions again. I have tried as much as possible optimization techniques, e.g. dispose where possible, close connections, disable viewstate for static controls etc but my memory per instance keeps building up from page to page without any signs of improvement. I don't use loops nor store huge objects like bitmaps etc but my sessions are now gone even faster than 90 minutes in shared application pool before.
I have considered using SQL Session State but there isn't a simple guide on using this with MySQL. I am getting desperate and considering using a public variable, a string as a replacement to store logged in user id instead of in a session variable. I am pretty sure this will solve my issue with sessions being recycled but are there any negative consequences of doing this? One problem I can think of is if the user closes the browser, the system will never know that the user is now logged out and this public variable should be nothing. In this scenario, will the GC eventually clear this abandoned public variable.
consider this scenario: a user on my website has a profileID. There are some pluginID's associated with this profileID.
E.g.: User1 might have 2, 3 and 5 plugins associated with his profile.
When the user logs in, I store the profileID of the user in a session variable cod. ON a certain page, the user tries to edit the plugins associated with his profile. So, on that page, I have to retrieve those pluginID's from the DB.
I have applied this code but this fetches only the maximum pluginID from the DB and not all the pluginID's.
I was trying to figure out how can I store multiple pluginID's in this session variable?
My problem is regarding title written above. Currently I have some functions that rely on Sessions to do the job. Everything works smoothly when it is left to default. However, I do not like the idea of losing sessions in case of crash and I have modified my web.config to use Sql Server mode instead.
I have run the necessary commands to create tables and stored procedures in my database using aspnet_sql.exe. I am able to store values into the database but have not been successful retrieving them. Since it has been working fine with InProc mode, I think I can safely assume that there's nothing wrong with my codes. Here's my web.config setting:
First one is registration page.second one is Gridview page.
When i click on submitt button,the data will store in gridview.
If i want to update the data,click edit button.it will navigate to registration page with concer data.
I wrote code in first page as
In second page gridview as
Now the problem isWhen click on edit,data is stored in concern textboxes.but i open first page it diplays session data.it did not show empty textboxes.I want empty form wen i request first page and wen i click on edit it will store entire data in textboxes with update buttonand client id and client code readonly property false.how to do it?
I have a web application using window authentication. There are a search page and a edit page in the application. In search page, user can enter some search criterias in the textboxes and the search result will be displayed in the gridview by clicking the "Search" button. User can select any row from the gridview and it will take him to the edit page. In the edit page, there is a "Back" button to take the user back to the search page. I use session variables to remember what the search criterias the user entered in the textboxes and what page number the user was in the gridview. So when the user goes back to the search page, the textboxes are pre-populated with the search criterias and the gridview is displayed in the correct page number.
The problem is: If user1 opened one browser window and did a search using search criterias1, then user1 opened a 2nd browser window and did a search using search criterias2. When the user1 went back to the search page from the edit page using the first browser window, all the textboxes and page numbers are from the 2nd browser window, instead of the 1st one. Can anyone explain this problem to me and how to prevent it? It will be helpful too if you can give me some links about the similar problem. I am thinking if the same user logged on two different machines and did the search on each machine, what is the result?
I am creating a presentation on basis of some selected values and maitaning the selected values in a session variable named Session("userPref") in collection form.
On Page_Load of TablePreview.aspx I am reading some values of Session("userPref") and doing some operatons.
For saving the presentation I have created a page wizardsave.aspx.
Now I am opening the wizardsave.aspx from TablePreview.aspx by window.open() function for saving presentation, but on Page_Load of wizardsave.aspx. I found that some value from collection stored in Session("userPref") have lost.
I have a public property that I use to store a GUID in the viewState:
Property myGUID() As Guid Get Return CType(Me.ViewState("myGUID"), Guid) End Get Set(ByVal value As Guid) Me.ViewState("myGUID") = value End Set End Property
I include this code on many pages in my website...is there any way to migrate this to a common code file, so I don't have to repeat it on each page? If I try to add it to a class file, the "Me" part of course is out of scope.
I am building a web app that is limited to one database, therefore I cannot use the ASP.NET config tool. As a quick means of getting this app online, I tried to use a simple session variable. The login page verifies the user's credentials, and if they pass, it sets the session variable to a certain value. All other pages check in the page_load event whether or not the session variable is equal to that value. The problem is that once being logged in for a short while and sending and recieving some data, the session variable resets, and I'm returned to the login page to repeat the process. Here's the basic code from my webforms:
Is there some setting I need to change in the web.config file to adjust the cookie timeout or is that only for the config tool authentication methods?
I added the following code to global.asax to load up several session variable when a session starts. I'm assuming that when a page goes to use the variable that I should be
1) checking at the page level that the value is valid not 0 when its not expected to be 0, not a zero-length string when its expected to have a length
2) have code at the page level that sets the values if the values have not been set as when the Session timeout, ideally putting the code in a class derived from Page and then deriving all of my pages from the new class so that the code does not have to be repeated in every page
I have some code in my page load event where I just want to fire once when the user opens the Browser. The only issue is if you open a new tab with the same website the session variable does not reset. Is there a way to reset the session variable when you open a new tab or do you have to take the whole web browser down for it to clear the session variable.
I'm working on a web page that is going to be used to enter data into a database. The page is going to be dynamic in that the user has the ability to add a row to the table with the same fields, ie lname1, fname1, mi1 then lname2, fname2, mi2
I'm wanting to use a variable to keep track of how many lines there are so that when I generate the added line I am creating a new field with the ID of lname+# . Whats the best way to do this, a global variable, session variable? As side note, first time programming in .Net or C#.
I have been spending a better part of a week trying to track down why I am not able to clear all session variables in a web app (vs 2010, vb.net). What I have tracked it down to is that when I remove or abandon sessions that my html pages or codebehind access, it works, but for some reason in any of my class files where I use "Public Shared strConnection as String = HttpContext.Current.Session("strConnection").ToString" to access a session variable, it finds the old one and not the current one. I have to wait for it to time out, go in again, and it will find the new one.
I do not use Linq, and there is only one place in the whole web app that I place the connection string in a variable whcih is when a person logs in. It points them to the correct database. The sqlconnection is set for all of my listviews in Page_Init to make sure that they aren't using any session variable that they create on their own. Interestingly enough that if I use debug to go in each time, exit debug, enter debug again trying to access a different database, it works correct each time. I assume that debug is correctly killing the session variable for the classes for me.
I am new to asp.net Can you please guide me what is session and session variables ? Please I don't need a comparision of asp session and asp.net session because I don't know anything about asp. I have saw many articles on types of session as well. But still I cant understand exectly what is session and what are session variables in asp.net ?
