I have web application in ASP + SQL Server. I am using session to validate the logged user. What happens, if user login in a single tab, there is no issue in the session state..if they open multiple tabs with different user session logins, there are no proper results on the page. (i.e it expiry one tab is logged out etc.,) Is there a possibility, different sessions for multiple tab browsers ...
 
how do resolve this in asp?

one Internet explorer window was one session
Multiple Tab's within the same Internet explorer windows shares the same session also.

The mess up of that data you are experiencing are due to that reason.  
One tab has as login the user "A" then the user on a second tab logins as "B" and the tab of login "A" changes to user "B".

what you have to do is not to allow the user to login again if he has already logged in to the system.

Let's say that your login page is the default.aspx
You have to check on the page load that the user is not logged in, if he is logged in to your system then redirect him to the next page of your site (the page after the successful login). If not then you can allow him to login

And before you ask I have to say that there is no way to have a different session per tab

Hope that I could help
