I have a custom class that I would like to put an instance of into a user Session. Is this possible? For example, if I have class:

 public class ClassTest
    {
        private string _test1;
        public string Test1
        {
            get { return _test1; }
            set { _test1 = value; }
        }
    }

What I want to do is put the instance into the Session like this:
ClassTest abc = new ClassTest();
Session["special"] = abc;

I want to be able to do this from anywhere on my site but doesn't work:
Response.Write(Session["special"].Test1.ToString());

How can I accomplish this with session variables?

Hi,
You will have to make the class serializable, to add/retrieve to/from session.
So your class definition will look like :

[Serializable()]
public class ClassTest
    {
        private string _test1;
        public string Test1
        {
            get { return _test1; }
            set { _test1 = value; }
        }
    }
