Hi strickdd,

enable session for page/site and put into your PageLoad
Session["my_data"] = 'waht_ever';

That would work under normal circumstances but I have session variables set in the Global.asax that I need on this page:

void Session_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Session["SomeSession"] = someData;
    }

Hi again strickdd,

>  want to force a Session start in a PageLoad f
so you cannt force Session start because it is already started. You could get the value as

someData = (cast_if_necessary)Session["SomeSession"];

The session is timing out before they get to this page and getting the data does not work in this way. Therefore I have to force the session to re-start.

Hi again ivostoykov,

> enable session for page/site and put into your PageLoad
> Session["my_data"] = 'waht_ever';

then do it like this

if(Session["SomeSession"] == null){Session["SomeSession"] = someData;}
else {someData = (cast_if_necessary)Session["SomeSession"];}

I would prefer to force a restart of the session at the application level. I have too many session vars set in the Session_Start event to do this to.
