Session.Keys to Label.Text

Posted on 2008-10-21

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

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?

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").

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();

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.
