Hi Experts

I am trying to set a cookie in ASP.NET

What I want to do is store the Id of the logged in user into a cookie.

What I have is

Response.Cookies("LoggedInUser").Expires = "5/1/2010"
Response.Cookies("LoggedInUser").Value = Request.Form("emailAddress")

And it works fine

But I want to store the Id not the email address. From My stored procedure I get the login information
The Id output is

<%# Get_Login.FieldValue("Id", Container) %>

How do I merge the two?

Cheers

What's Get_Login?

You'd just create a method which returns the ID from the stored proc and set Response.Cookies("LoggedInUser").Value to the value it returns.

Yes, Thats exactly what I am after.

What is the correct Syntax to do that.

The Get_Login is the name of my stored procedure.

Sorry if the question seems basic. I am a php devloper and a client of ours needs this proj in vb.net
Its only my second day learning vb.net.

I thought something like
Response.Cookies("LoggedInUser").Value = Get_Login.FieldValue("Id", Container)

But that doesnt do it.

If you've got the stored proc called Get_Login, create a method called GetLogin or something like that which returns at integer - something like this.......

    Private Function GetLogin() As Integer
        Dim strConn As String = "connection string"
        Dim conn As New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(strConn)
        Dim cmd As New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand("Get_Login")
        cmd.CommandType = Data.CommandType.StoredProcedure
        Dim intLogin As Integer = -1
        conn.Open()
        intLogin = cmd.ExecuteScalar
        conn.Close()
        Return intLogin
    End Function

Then set the cookie using

Response.Cookies("LoggedInUser").Value = GetLogin
