Global.asax file

Posted on 2006-07-10

I am starting to use the global.asax file, as I have never touched on it before. I successfuly increment an application value when a session starts, but when a session ends, I subtract one from this value. The Session End process is not firing, and the value just keeps increasing. Please could some one advise.

Thanks in advance


P.s. My Code

<%@ Application Language="C#" %>

<script runat="server">

    void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
        Application["NoUsers"] = 0;
        // Code that runs on application startup

    void Application_End(object sender, EventArgs e)
        //  Code that runs on application shutdown
        Application["NoUsers"] = Convert.ToInt32(Application["NoUsers"]) - 1;
    void Application_Error(object sender, EventArgs e)
        // Code that runs when an unhandled error occurs
        Application["NoUsers"] = Convert.ToInt32(Application["NoUsers"]) - 1;

    void Session_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
        Application["NoUsers"] = Convert.ToInt32(Application["NoUsers"])+1;
        // Code that runs when a new session is started


    void Session_End(object sender, EventArgs e)
        Application["NoUsers"] = Convert.ToInt32(Application["NoUsers"]) - 1;
        // Code that runs when a session ends.
        // Note: The Session_End event is raised only when the sessionstate mode
        // is set to InProc in the Web.config file. If session mode is set to StateServer
        // or SQLServer, the event is not raised.

Are you actually waiting long enough for the sessions to expire when testing ?

Does the session automatically end when a browser window is shut?

Nope. It ends after whatever period is specified in the session timeout, by default this is 20 minutes.
