Session objects not cleared as expected, after upgrading to IIS7.5

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I've just upgraded my development machine from XP SP3 (IIS5.1) to Win7 x64 (IIS7.5)Since doing this, my app has started to behave differently.  Within it I store users' preferences/access levels using an instance of a class that I store within the Session object.  This class is shown:Public Class UserSessionObject Private _customerID As Integer Private _userPermission As Integer Private _customerPermission As Integer Public Property CustomerID As Integer Get Return _customerID End Get Set(ByVal value As Integer) _customerID = value End Set End Property Public Property UserPermission As Integer Get Return _userPermission End Get Set(ByVal value As Integer) _userPermission = value End Set End Property Public Property CustomerPermission As Integer Get Return _customerPermission End Get Set(ByVal value As Integer) _customerPermission = value End Set End Property Public Sub New(ByVal CustomerID As Integer, ByVal UserPermission As Integer, ByVal CustomerPermission As Integer) _customerID = CustomerID _userPermission = UserPermission _customerPermission = CustomerPermission End Sub End Class My requirement is that on each page request (other than the login page), the application should check that the Session object exists.  The page data is therefore shown based on the values within the session obj

Using CodeDomSerializer - inner objects are cleared


I am develop on VS 2008, C#, Windows 7, Windows form.

Problem in my code : I succeed doing property editor, and I see that initializeComponent function is good (it saves and load).

I can see also the changes I made by the property editor on design time,

but (there is always but) when running the code (when debugging), I see that the "InitializeComponent" is cleared of the changes on "InitializeComponents" I have made.

(When I don't save the above, and just quite VS 2008, and login VS 2008 again - everything is fine).

I have created will partial success a property editor for a collection property object (such as columns on DataGridView),

using CodeDomeSerializer.

In code I need another collection, that helps me doing the work.

It's quite big code, so I cannot put the whole code here.

Some critical lines :

On the main object, I added the a

How do you manage custom objects and session state



I've created a whole bunch of rather complex classes and now i'm starting to work on the ASP.net user interface.  Basically the user will open 1 page which will be used to load, edit, save an object. The object has many fields and they are often other classes i've created. To create a nice interface i've used popups and used AJAX to reload parts of the page to avoid reloading the whole thing.

My plan was to create the object and save it to the session. Then each time the page is loaded copy the object values to the asp fields and do the reverse when the page has been submitted copying the asp values to the object field then updating the session object.

So the code will go something like:


if session is not null load from session otherwise create new
this.txtID.text = object.id
this.txtName.text = object.name
etc etc

on submit:

object.id = this.txtID.text
object.name = this.txtName.text
etc etc
update session.

Is this what you guys would do? or am i over thinking this, seems like a lot of code to load all the object fields each time the page is opened and submitted etc.

Just looking to bounce ideas of off other developers :D


Objects in session variables now causing slow-downs..


I've noticed that once I've instantiated 3-4 objects now, my ASPX page is running slower.  The response from the server (which is my own PC) is taking longer.

With one or two objects, the performance is same.  After I instantiate 3, it slows a little, and 4 just completely wears it down.

I've read this article: http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/faq/Advanced/faq4.shtml

that says to avoid using session variables especially storing objects into them.  Well thats exactly what I'm doing.  My object has about 10 methods(~30 lines of code each) and 20 fields.

My question is, if I want to persist object in memory for each user session, how else could I store them on each postback if not in the session variable>?  I can't use application variable because thats shared and not thread safe.

what are my alternatives??

Problem upgrading to MVC3 - System.Web.Routing



I'm trying to upgrade to .NET 4 and MVC 3.

When trying to compile my project, I get the error:

Error 1 The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?) C:\Users\spencer\Desktop\weblauncher\Common\MVCConfig.cs 4 18 Common

The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

I do have the System.Web.Routing in my references for the project.

BUT - when I try to view System.Web.Routing in the OBJECT BROWSER, nothing is inside!  The System.Web.Routing namespace is not in there - the entire thing is empty!  Could it that the dll is corrupted?  I tried to reinstall the .NET 4 and MVC 3 stuff, but its still empty!

The dll is coming from here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.0\System.Web.Routing.dll

UpdatePanel is not a known element - message when upgrading to 1.0 ajax


It worked on one of my old pages.  I change the web.config, renamed all the <asp.

On some aspx page it doesn't recognize the updatepanel.  It only does on one page.  If I create a new aspx page with a different name - then it works.

Should I just create a new web project ajax - then copy all my code into there?  Or is there a way to get those old pages to recognize the new ajax controls?

How to check for null/empty strings on dynamic objects?


What is the proper way to check for null or empty strings on dynamic objects? This is the only solution I've found so far:

if (admin.PasswordHash.GetType() == typeof(DBNull) || admin.PasswordHash == string.Empty)

If the field is null, the object returned is DBNull.Value, but if the field is empty string, it's return as a System.String object. This makes it impossible to do regular "admin.PasswordHash == DBNull.Value" check, as that will fail whenever the field has been set to empty string. Is my example the right (and only) way to go?

SQL Server Session state problem.


Hi to all,

I have some things that I want to know. I am right now using a free asp.net webhosting ("somee.com"). The problem is that when I am visiting a page, there's a tendency that values stored in my session variables are lost. Therefore, it causes an error when the requested page is loaded.

1. I am thinking of using sessionState mode="SqlServer". Will it solve my problem?

Actualy Im working on it but Im having problems when connecting to the sql database.

2.  Is that a problem in the webhost?

3. Do free webhosting sites provide allow session state in the sql server?. Because ive tried it locally into my computer and error say's i should intall the ASP.NET Session State SQL Server version 2.0 or above.

Datatable in session


I am creating a simple shopping cart using a datatable that is passed into a session object.  I have a small mini cart that displays the total number of items in the cart as well as the running total - this is displayed in a web control.  When the web control starts up I run a try/catch to see if the session object exists, if it doesn't I create the datatable for the cart and store it in the session.  I then have a datalist control that contains all the information for my products including an "add to cart" button.  When the page loads everything looks fine.  If I click on an "add to cart" button nothing happens to the session information.  If I click on it again, the session information updates - displaying only one item is in the cart and then counts up correctly there after.  Additionally, after adding an item, if I select a different item in the list, the same issue occurs.  I am not sure why this is happeing, if anyone can give me an idea I would appreciate it.
