Session.Keys to Label.Text

I have a Session value Session("Customer")
 How would I write the Session value as a string?

This would be to easy Label1.Text = Session("Customer").ToString();

There are lots of examples of printing out Session.Keys with Response.Write.

But nothing about writing the key as a string.

Thanks for the help,
Ralph

in C# you dont access the session values using Session("Customer")
in order to get them you need to use Session["Customer"].ToString();
Label1.Text = Session["Customer"].ToString();

you will want to use session.keys only when you want to check all the session key values.
it will normally be used for debugging purposes rather than as a logic

you are correct the way value for session variable is retrieved and shown on the label
Label1.Text = Session["Customer"].ToString();

string keyValues;
foreach(string Key in )ession.Keys
{
       keyValues += "Key:   " & Key;
       keyValues += "Value:   " & Session[Key] + System.Environment.NewLine;
}

Whoa, Label1.Text = Session["Customer"].ToString(); Does not work!
I was just joking when I used that example.
Apparently I do not want to use Session.Keys ok what do I need to do to make Session
("Customer") a string?

Hi RalphHxyz

I am confused a bit now I couldn't understand what are you trying to say here?

have you set any value in Session["Customer"]
what kind of object is it - is it a customer object or a string
if its not working then i will assume either the session variable is empty or is containg something else which does not give any output on .ToString()

Session("Customer") is populated with the Customer's name.
So I would assume it is a string.
If I do a loop with a Response.Write  it is written out.
I do not need "all" of the sessiion keys just Session("Customer").

Thank you,
I had gessed at:
Label1.Text = Session("Customer").ToString();
but
Label1.Text = Session["Customer"].ToString();
Makes more sense to reference the Session Array.
Thank you.
