module variables are not reset on asynchronous postback

Hi

I have some variables in a public module and they are not being reset when the page performs an asynchronous postback.

Do you have an idea why this is? If i cannot force them to be reset what variables could i access from a public function in a module that retain their values between successive function calls (within the same postback) but are definitely reset on an asynch postback

many thanks

If you're talking about a Visual Basic module then all variables are shared in scope which means they persist throughout the application. They are also shared between all users of the application so if one user performs an action that modifies the contents of the variable all other users will see the change as well.

From the sound of it modules aren't really appropriate for what you are doing, you should use define on the page that is using them.

Thanks for confirming that for me. What type of variable can i use from within a module (or somewhere where i am putting some shared code) that will be reset per page load. Thanks
