Common session for different browser instance


Hello everyone,

I am working on a website which uses a common database shared by another 2-3 websites.  Now i am having a requirement that whenever a user clicks a link provided on another website and comes to my website and if the user is already logged in to my website then my website should not ask him to login again it should by pass the login page and show the next page.

Here the problem is i am not able to get the session objects in newly opened browser window even if the user is already logged in to my website in another browser window. I am not sure but i thing IE uses two different processes for two different browser instance and because of that i am not getting the session objects required.

Deos anyone have some idea on my problem.

Note: I can not ask the another website vendor to pass anything as a querystring.

Why does this query timeout in an application but not in Management Studio?

I have a query that looks something like this:   SELECT TOP 1 * FROM Customers c (NOLOCK) WHERE Key = (mykey) AND NOT EXISTS (SELECT 0 FROM Invoices i (NOLOCK) WHERE i.key = c.key AND i.Date > GETDATE() )   When I run this inside an (ODBC) application, it times out.   When I run it within SSMS, it works fine.  That might make you think its an application problem, but the timeout only occurs for one specific customer ... even in the application, it works fine for all other key values.    Any idea where I can even start looking for a solution to this?  Thanks.

Warning users before Session Timeout

Hi, In my web application, I want to alert users 5 minutes before their session timeout. If the users want, they can either extend their session or ignore the message - in which case after session timeout they will be redirected to the login page (I'm also using forms authentication in my site, so have set the authentication cookie expire time to the session timeout). I know I can do the alert with window.setTimeout, but I want to get user's respond and refresh the page if they want a session extension. How can I do that, in which event and whether I can do this in C# code behind. And also, should I implement this in the base page or somewhere else? How can I implement the auto page refresh - should I use a hidden button and click it from Javascript? It's great if someone can give a sample code for this.  

how do I host wpf browser application in IIS

I would like to host several WPF browser applications in IIS, and include these as iframe in one IIS .net webforms application. Would you please provide the procedures involved in the first step: creating a wpf application in visual studio 2010 for hosting in IIS 7. I understand I need an xbap, but how do I get an xbap from the browser application project? I'm not seeing this in the folder after build. Also would you please confirm whether it is possible to run multiple xbap iis websites (using bindings possibly?), and present these though regular webforms website in multiple iframe?

Ajax Session timeout problem

Hi,  I have some problems when using AJAX with updatepanels. I have an ASP.NET webapplication with a login that uses form authentication with the timeout set to 5 min. After 5 min of idle the site should be redirected to the login.aspx page. My problem is that after using the site for 5 minutes when clicking on contents inside an updatepanel I get a messagebox with the following error: A Runtime Error has occurred.Do you wish to Debug? Line: 4723Error: Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerServerErrorException: An unknown error occurred while processing the request on the server. The status code returned from the server was: 12031  I think that it has something to do with the ajax updatepanel since when I remove the updatpanels this problem does not appear. Instead the site is redirected to login.aspx as expected. When searching on the problem on google I see alot of people having similar problem, but I haven't found suitable solution. Any suggestions?
