Redirecting to home page when session expires (without )

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hello guys, my web app doesn't use authorization in web.config, but i want to detect when a session has expired and redirect to the home page.

I have searched and found solutions that rely on the web app using authorization. Other solutions have implemented a user control to drop in every page.

Obviosly i don't want to manually check for null on every session variable on every event of the web app, so i want the app to do it automatically.

<sessionState timeout="120"></sessionState>
<authentication mode="Forms">
       <forms name="myappCookie" loginUrl="~/index.aspx" timeout="120"/>

doesn't work for me since i don't have allow or deny settings, since my app doesn't need authentication.

What are my options?

Need help redirecting users to personalized page


 Hi, first timer here so be gentle.


I've been able to create a cool little website, it's up and running with users logging in and out, I created roles so my administrative team can see sensitive data that's not available to regular and anonymous users.

Now they would like me to create a page specific to each user.  For instance when user A logs in they are redirected to a page that has information that pertains to user A only (like a list of their benefits/ their remaining vacation time). This page needs to be accessible only to user A. 

I've watched a ton of the videos but have yet to see one that covers this topic, any help would be great!!!

Viewing your In-Box from the Home Page


I have a user request to access the user's Outlook In-Box from the home page in SP 2010.  The OWS In Box web part requires a hard-coded email address.  Is there any way to have the web part accept a variable?  That way I could pass the email address from AD.

My site link on my home page.



One of the user got My owa link in place of my site on the my home page ( go to my site --> my home --> top right corner shows My owa insead of my site ) and he wants to edit that my owa link now. first of all i dont know how he got that My owa link in the place of my site on my home page. When he surfs any other page than he is getting my site on all other pages. so he is just getting My owa link in place of my site only on the my home page.

At the first glanse, i think it would be master page issue but if that would be the case than it shold apply all the users but this is happening just for one user and we are not using custom master page.

Please help.

Permission Errors for Users on Home Page only of SQL Server Reporting Services Report Manager

I have spent days now investigating this problem, so any help very much appreciated! I have a remote web server 2003 running SQL Server R2 Express Edition with Reporting Services installed. I use Report Builder 3.0 locally to build report. If I login via Internet to Report Manager Web Page as an administrator I can perform all the expected and required actions, creating new folders and assigning permissions for users etc. I have added a new user "ReportUser" as a Browser of a child folder. If ReportUser longs on to home page, he receives the all too familiar error: User 'XXXXXXXX\reportuser' does not have required permissions. Verify that sufficient permissions have been granted and Windows User Account Control (UAC) restrictions have been addressed. However, if the user starts at the child folder of home page, and then logs in, he sees the expected page, and can run the report!  This is not very satisfactory. How can I allow user to see home page, without an error message, but not be allowed to click on any folders to which he is not entitled? I am now aware that SQL Server R2 Express Edition has many limitations compared with full Editions (fixed roles, cannot manage Report Service from Management Studio etc) , and many of the "solutions" offered on the web just do not apply.   John Walton

Is it possible to store objectdatasource in session or viewstate to use on another page?

Im building my objectdatasource on different button events.. so id like to know if i can store that or the results in a session or viewstate so i can use it on a pop-up window. explanation: User arrives at our page. They select or enter specific information to search.. results found are presented in a gridview, that is currently bound to the objectdatasource. Within that gridview i will be adding a button to open a new window that will display a googlemap with the location marked on the map. Also will be adding a button to view all the results on the map. So if your search returns 10 records and you want to see all 10 marked on the map, they can click the "View All" button and they are all marked on the map.. Or if you want to just view 1 at a time, you select that record and it display just that record on the map.   So not sure what i should do to accomplish this.
