I have a web form and I want to be able to use the values from the controls accross multiple web pages.

For example when users log into a site, how can I show details from the user even when selecting different pages.

If someone could even tell me where I should be reading to get this information I would be very thankful

Declare your controls as Public.

Just include a module, and inside that module, declare the variables that you wish to store your data inside as global.

Inside Module1:

Global myVarName as Integer, myStringName as String


Then when you access them later, they will still be there with the same values.

I'd make a struct with all the values in it.  Then just store this struct as an object in the servers session state.  Each time you load a page, grab this struct from the session, populate it with some values (the ones you need for that particular page) and you are set.  TO make this even faster, store the object in the cache.

Also, when the user changes a value that you want to remember, just grab the object again, make the change, and put it back in the session/cache.

I thought that my solution, rather links were, helpful enough to be classed as an answer to the problem.
