Working With Static Variables / Store The User Specific Information In Static Variables?

Mar 5, 2011

whats the exact use of static variables in overall programming in .net and for

Recently i went for the interview where interviewer asked me 2 question which i was not sure for the same..

whats the use of session object, i said sessions are the server side object, they are used when you want to store user specific data at server side, then he asked what if i want to use static variables for the same, i was mum, can anyone tell me how will behave if i store the user specific information in static variables.If i use cookies which are the best option to store the data at client side (not sensitive one), but what if user has disabled cookies on his machine, will my application would crash.

C# - Static Variables In WCF?

Feb 13, 2011

I have some WCF services. These services run in ASP.NET. I want these services to be able to access a static variable. My problem is, I'm not sure where the appropriate server level storage mechanism is. I don't want to use the database because of speed. But, I want the static variables to stay in memory as long as possible. In fact, I'd like it to stay until I restart my server if it all possible.

Optional Variables In Public Static Void?

Jun 22, 2010

Let's say I have the following;

public static void TryOut(int intOne, int intTwo, string strone, string strtwo){....}

And after I created dll, I will use it like that;

TryOut(1,3,"bla bla bla", "bla bla bla");
But I want the last variable to be optional. I mean this method could be used like that;
TryOut(1,3,"bla bla bla", "bla bla bla");
And Also like that
TryOut(1,3,"bla bla bla");

I know it is possibel but how I could do that I have no idea !

C# - Will Static Public Variables In App Get Shared With Other Users In The Same App

Nov 11, 2010

For reasons I would rather not discuss, I need to create a custom authentication system for my app. I was just reviewing the system and am having some doubts if my solution is thread safe. My goal was to create a solution that would allow my app to authenticate a user one time and that users authentication info would be shared by all master pages, pages, classes, user controls, etc that are used. (But not share the same info between users) Here is my setup: PageHttpModule.cs - this is added to the web.config as a httpModule.

public class PageHttpModule : IHttpModule
public void Init(HttpApplication app)
app.AuthenticateRequest += new EventHandler(OnAuthenticateRequest);
public void OnAuthenticateRequest(Object s, EventArgs e)
public void Dispose() { }
public static class CurrentUser
public static bool IsAuthenticated { get; private set; }
public static string Email {get; set;}
public static string RealName {get; set;
public static string UserId {get; set;}
public static void Initialize()
Note: this is a scaled down version of my authentication code.
public static void AuthenticateUser()
UserAuthentication user = new UserAuthentication();
if (user.IsAuthenticated)
CurrentUser.IsAuthenticated = true;
CurrentUser.UserId = user.UserId;
CurrentUser.Email = user.Email;
CurrentUser.RealName = user.RealName;
public class UserAuthentication
public string Email { get; set; }
public string RealName { get; set; }
public string UserId { get; set; }
public bool IsAuthenticated { get; private set; }
public UserAuthentication()
IsAuthenticated = false;
Email = String.Empty;
RealName = String.Empty;
UserId = String.Empty;
public void AuthenticateUser()
//do some logic here.. if the user is ok then
IsAuthenticated = true
Email = address from db
UserId = userid from db;
Realname = name from db;

I have tested between 3 different browsers and it seems to work fine, but I am still learning and don't want to make a huge mistake. If my logic is totally wrong, then how should I do it so I dont have to put user lookups on every page directly?

Architecture :: Finding Pros And Cons Of Static Classes And Variables (particularly A Db Connection)

Jan 11, 2010

So I started working on my first application that involves logging in and databases, and soon after i started messing around with a static class. I "discovered" that if you make a variable static, all sessions share that variable (I for some reason was originally assuming that each session had its own copy of that "static" class). Anyway, after discovering this I thought to myself "how could this possibly be useful to me" and thought that itmight be a good idea to make a single static database connection for all of the sessions, rather than storing that as a session variable for each session. Does anybody know what would be the pros and cons of this approach?

Entity Framework - Is Using Public Static Variables For Compiled Queries Bad In Applications?

Aug 19, 2010

I'm coding a business layer for an ASP.NET application. I've created database methods in my BLL as static. I've created public static Func variables to be compiled and used in several different methods, like this:

namespace BLL
public class User
public static Func<Context, variable, result> selectUser;
private static void CompileQuery()
if(selectUser == null)
selectUser = CompiledQuery.Compile......
public static UserClass Select(int id)
//uses selectUser
public static SomethingElse DoSomethingElse()
//also uses selectUser

It'll be used in ASP.NET layer like this: using BLL;

private void AddUser()
UserClass user = User.Select(id);

My question is, since static variables are not thread-safe, is this a bad design decision? I'm thinking of either implementing a locking mechanism, which makes me think if it'd slow down the application, or using instantiated class approach which makes me wonder if query compiling would be beneficial.

C# - Static Behave / Only Work For A Specific User Session Or For Overall Application?

Mar 1, 2011

I have an application with c# language. I have a common class which maintain the constants and static variables and fields. I also have a login page. If the user logs in successful I set IsLoggedInSuccessfull as a static boolean variable in common class.

My question is: Will this only work for a specific user session or for overall application ?

Based on some answers I got another question here.

let say i am using the Static method as Authenticate(User objUser). intention is to call this method when user clicked log in button. where on login button I am let say prepare the User object with certain parameters required for login, then passing to this method. what would be the impact there? let say I have single server for now (no server farm or garden). then there will be the single application level method to authenticate the user, right? and say 10000 user are going to logging in to this site/application then how authenticate() method comes in behaves ? will CLR automatically manage threading there ?

C# - How To Lock A Private Static Field Of A Class In One Static Method

Mar 26, 2011

I have a private static field in my Controller class in an MVC web application.

I have a static method in that controller that assigns some value to that static field, I want to apply lock on that static field until some other instance method in the controller uses the value stored in the static field and then releases it.


I have a controller named BaseController having a static ClientId field as follows and two methods as follows:-

public static string ClientId = "";
static void OnClientConnected(string clientId, ref Dictionary<string, object> list)
list.Add("a", "b");
// I want the ClientId to be locked here, so that it can not be accessed by other requests coming to the server and wait for ClientId to be released:-
BaseController.clientId = clientId;
public ActionResult Handler()
if (something)
// use the static ClientId here
// Release the ClientId here, so it can now be used by other web requests coming to the server.
return View();

AJAX :: Calling Non-static Methods From A Static Method?

Jun 30, 2010

I did some research after posting. All I found was simple examples for no-layer architectures, like connecting to a database from your aspx page, so, in a corporate environment, it is unnaceptable.

I need to call a server-side method (using ASP.NET Ajax) in a 3-layer architecture.

For example, my Default.aspx contains a method LoadProducts().



This cannot change. There is no way to convert Business and Data layers to static.

How can I call the LoadProducts() method using ASP.NET Ajax?

MVC :: Put View-specific Static Content (img/js)?

May 26, 2010

so I see these opinions/tutorials about serving static content to support views, from files that co-reside in directories with those views: the second article, Phil says view-adjacent static content was default-enabled at the time (over a year ago). Unfortunately, though, I reference:


and by default ASP.NET is trying to find it adjacent to my view, which (voila!) is disabled by default. Grr. :)What is the out-of-box IDE-assisted way to reference view-specific static content that doesn't require hardcoding directory tree structures into my path, and also doesn't require ALL of my assets to be in a single folder?Or, if I do it the "unpure" way like I'll probably do if I don't get other ideas (by modifying /Views/Web.Config HttpFileNotFoundHandler), should I block anything unsafe besides .ASCX, .ASPX, and .MASTER that is likely to show up in my views folder?

C# - Where To Store Sensitive Variables

Apr 4, 2011

This is my first time working on a secure website. It's for a pet project I have.

For security purposes, where is it best to store information like SQL connection strings, database encryption keys, etc? Is it better to use web.config, store them in a class that accesses a database (like dataBaseHelper.cs or something), or somewhere else?

I intend to obtain an SSL cert as well. When communicating with the database, should I always use the secure connection?

View 2 Replies - Architecture Specific To Shared/Static Functions?

Apr 30, 2010

If for example you have a function Public shared function GetStockByID(StockID as Guid) as Stock Is that function common to all current users of your application? Or is the shared function only specific to the current user and shared in the context of ONLY that current user? So more specifically my question is this, besides database concurrency issues such as table locking do I need to concern myself with threading issues in shared functions in an ASP.Net application?In my head; let's say my application namespace is MyTestApplicationNamespace. Everytime a new user connects to my site a new instance of the MyTestApplicationNamespace is created and therefore all shared functions are common to that instance and user but NOT common across multiple users. Is this correct?
