Session_OnEnd() doesn't fire...?

Hello,

I am currently trying to log the last "tab" a user was on as they exit the ASP.NET application.  My problem is that I can't seem to get the "Session_OnEnd()" sub procedure to fire in my Global.asax.vb page - unless I add "Handles MyBase.EndRequest" as the handler for that sub.  The down-side to doing that, is it updates the SQL tables when ever the user makes an HTTP request.  Which I do not want to happen since it's unnecessary trips to the db.  I only want it to fire if a true Session has ended.

Below is the exact code for that which does not fire.  Any help is very appreciated!

Sub Session_End(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

    ' execute the stored proc and etc...

End Sub

This is what it looks like with the Handler "attached" to it....

Sub Session_End(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.EndRequest

    ' execute the stored proc and etc...

End Sub

Sorry.. my post was very short,.. it comes to this (this is the best explaination I could find for you...):

(from MSDN; http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnaspp/html/aspnetsessionstate.asp)

"....The Session_OnEnd event signals the end of the session and is used to perform any clean-up code needed to terminate the session. Notice, though, that the event is supported only in InProc mode—that is, only when the session data is stored in the ASP.NET worker process. For Session_OnEnd to fire, the session state has to exist first, meaning that you have to store some data in the session state and must have completed at least one request..."

Use also this address to verify how you start/create a session... (You need one first to be anble to end one!)...

If you have any question, plz ask!
