I am trying to insert a session variable (Session["OldboyCount"]) as the default value of a textbox.  I've tried the following to no avail:

<asp:textbox id="oldboyqty" columns="7" value='<%#Session["OldboyCount"]%>' runat="server"/>

Please help!!

Put this in your page load event if you have the session variable already delcared

me.oldboyqty.text = CStr(Session("Oldboycount"))

I get the following compilation error:

CS0246: The type or namespace name 'me' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

Yeah the ME is for VB, for c#:

this.oldboyqty.text = System.Convert.ToString(Session("Oldboycount"));

I get the following compiler error:

Compiler Error Message: CS0117: 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox' does not contain a definition for 'text'


Does the following syntax need to change at all?

<asp:textbox id="oldboyqty" columns="7" value='<%#Session["OldboyCount"]%>' runat="server"/>

in the code behind after you type the this.oldboyqt hit the . and you should see what properties you can expose, I am a VB programmer, so it must be little different in c#

Hey markjae,

Its hard to set the values like this and it is more prone to errors since any time Session["OldBoyCount"] is null you will recieive the ASP.net object error. Why dont you set it in code:

if (Session["MyVar"] != null)
{
  MyTextBox1.Text = Session["MyVar"].ToString();
}

Best, Nauman
