I'm using asp.net with vb ...

I've got a webform, a code behind page, and a functions.vb page ...

everything works fine, but I want to share variables between functions ...

on my code behind page, i'll call a function in functions.vb, then it will return to the code behind, where i'll call another function from functions.vb ... when i access functions.vb again, i want some variables to be saved ... basically connection variables, that sort of nature ..


Public Class functions
           Dim objConnection as connection

            Function SetConnection()
                   objConnection = whatever
            End Function
            Function 1()
            End Function
                   'I want to be able to access the stored info from objConnection here when I called it the last time
            Function 2()

            End Function
End Class

    on my web form:


end function

function runthisfunction()
       functions.Function2() 'here, i call function2 from the class page, there i want to be able to access objConnection without having to reset the variable ... there's more to this obviously than what i am coding .. but the framework should be the same as in this example ..
end function

on your web form you need to do an instance of your class, something like this...

your webform...
private oFunc as new functions

sub btn1_click()
end sub

sub runthisfunction()
end sub

Yup, your right ...

i was declaring the functions class inside each function ... that would reset the variables :)
