Where to check the "Session Timeout"

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi all,

this is my situation: I have a master page and in the contentPlaceHolder I have a MultiView in wich I load all my pages (I have a left-side menu, and when I click on it the system load the relative view of the MultiView).

The problem now is how (and where!) to check the session timeout. I would like to comunicate to the user when the session is finished (the timeout is set in my web.config file). Where can I check the session time out?

In the MasterPage I can't, because the master page is loaded only one time, and not when I show the views.

When I click on the menu? It's very strange... I have to insert the check in every menu, and in every page where there is a call to load a page... impossible I think!

So, how can I do?

Check session timeout and warn user before timeout


I know there are several articles explaining how to warn the user before their session times out, but so far none of them have worked for our scenario, so I'm hoping someone here will be able to help me figure this one out...  Here's what we've got:

Our application uses SQLServer to store session state.  We've got it set to timeout in 60 minutes.  Unfortunately (I fought hard against this, but lost the battle) our application uses popups for several major screens.  So tracking the session timeout on the client side doesn't really work, because I have no idea what window the user is in at any given point.  I've tried the solution where you inject Javascript into the page using the current session timeout on each request, but again, because the user could be actively using the application in a different window, it doesn't work for us.  So I guess I have a couple key questions:

  1. Is there any way to get the timeout for a session without triggering a request to the server, which would just renew the session?
  2. Is there a way to track the session timeout value across multiple windows? 
    I believe there is a limit to the number of "branches" the main window can have in our app.  In other words, the user can only be 2 levels deep from the main/root window, s

Using a CompareValidator to check input is a valid date

The CompareValidator can do more than just compare two controls. You can also compare it against several of the main .net data types such as Date, Integer, Double and Currency.

To do this you would set Operator="DataTypeCheck" and instead of setting the ControlToCompare or ValueToCompare attributes as you normally would you use the Type="Date" (or any of the data types I have listed above).

Check All with JQuery and a Asp.Net GridView

Display a Grid on the screen with a checkbox in each row. At the bottom of the page have "Check All" button.

Typically if I need to do anything interesting I use a template column. So my GridView will look like the one below (most other columns removed for readability). The only interesting point to note is the CssClass="ApprovalCheckBox" in the CheckBox ItemTemplate.

check box control


Hi ,

I have a three check box in my web form ,i need to choose only one check box, if i choose one check box

another 2 check box automatically unchecked

can i use jquery for check box

I thought this would be simple... Trying to create a login does an ajax check before submit


I have the standard .net login control that is working.  (Still learning .net after 15yrs of classic)

What I want to do is OnButtonClick run a javascript function (to do an ajax call to the db to check if login is valid or not) and if it returns true, then submit the form normally, else don't submit. The piece that I can't figure out, is how to correctly override the default click even to hit my JS routine and then submit the form properly afterwards.

Thanks ahead of time

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?

Automatically redirect to HTTPS and check if SSL is active



I've set in the web.config:

    <!-- User Authentication -->
    <authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="~/Page/View/Content/Login.aspx" timeout="2880" requireSSL="true" />

This works fine. If there is no ssl connection, the login form doesn't continue. But I would like to check if ssl is active (in codebehind) and, if it's possible, to automatically the user to the https page if he's currently on http. (I could do this job by manually redirect with page.response("https://url.../login.aspx"); but this is not really generic. For example if the webapp is moved to another domain it doesn't work anymore... I'm looking for something like: FormsAuthentication.RedirectWithSSL(); or so... :D)
