The ASP Session Object
- The ASP Session Object
The Session object is automatically created every time client browser access
pages from your web site. Session object is specific for every user and varies
from user to user. It can be used to store variables specific for a user and IIS
will maintain these variables when the client moves across pages within your
site. You can create and access Session scope variables. You can store user
specific preferences within Session object such as 'font-size, background-color'
Note that scripts for different Events are to be
declared in global.asa file.
||Contains all the items which have
been added to the Session object. You can iterate through the Contents
collection and retrieve a list of all the items added or you can
retrieve a specific item. Note that it contains all the Session
items except the ones created using <object> element.
||Contains all the items which have Session
scope created using <object> element. As with Session.Contents
collection you can iterate through the StaticObjects
collection to get a list of items or you can get a specific item out of
the StaticObjects collection.
||An integer which defines the
code page to be used to display content to the client browser e.g. code
page 1252 is used to for American english and most European languages
and 932 is used for Japanese kanji.
||Stands for locale identifier. It is
a standard international abbreviation that uniquely identifies the
locale e.g. LCID 2057 stands for British locale.
||A long which returns the
session identifier for this client browser.
||An integer which specifies a
time out period in minutes. If the client doesn't refresh or request any
page of your site within this time out period then the server ends the
current session. If you do not specify any time out period then by
default time out period is 20 minutes.
||Destroys the current session object
and releases its resources, meaning there by that if the client requests
any page of your site after Session.Abandon method has been
called then a separate session will be started.
||Deletes the given item from the Session.Contents
||Destroys all the items in the Session.Contents
||This event occurs when the session
is abandoned or times out for a specific user.
||Occurs when a new session is
started. All the ASP objects are available for you to use. You can
define your session wide variables here.
