Store the selected values in an Arraylist and store the Arraylist object in Session. Session["selVal"] = objArrayList;

Setting sessions:

Session["sessFirstName"] = txtFirstName.Text;


Retriving sessions:
txtFirstName.Text = Session["sessFirstName"];

Use arraylist to save values and save arraylist to session

 
To save values
// ArrayList class object
ArrayList arrlist = new ArrayList();
// add items to arrlist collection using Add method
arrlist.Add("item 1");
arrlist.Add("item 2");
arrlist.Add("item 3");
arrlist.Add("item 4");
arrlist.Add("item 5");

to save to session

Session["Company"] = arrlist;

to get values
ArrayList arrlist = new ArrayList();

arrlist = Session["Company"];
// for loop to get items stored at each index of arrlist collectionfor (int i = 0; i < arrlist.Count; i++)  {
Response.Write(arrlist[i].ToString() + "<br />");
}

mawingho thts too simple just use session variables like ...........

// for storing any value in sessions.
Session["CompanyName"]=TxtCompanyName.text;

Using Sessions will help you to find the company name selected by the user in your first page:

//for getting the companyname selected by user in your firstpage u just need to use

Session["CompanyName"].ToString()

for eg. if you want to print the name of company selected by user in a label then do this
label1.text = Session["CompanyName"].ToString();

Hi,

1. you can put the selected countries in a comma delimited string and put that string in a session.
     string countryselection = country1 + "," + country2.....
     session.add("countryselection", countryselection)
     
2.using a hash table for storing multiple values and place this hash table in the session
    htcountryselection.add("country1",country1)
   .....session.add("htcountry",htcountyselection)
3.using list
    list<string> lstcountryselection = new list<string>();
   lstcountryselection.add("country1");
   ......session.add("countrylist",lstcountryselection);

I think Arraylist is good
to get values use this

foreach (GridViewRow rowItem in GridView1.Rows){    // FindControl function gets the control placed inside the GridView control from the specified cell    // FindControl fucntion accepts string id of the control that you want to access    // type casting of control allows to access the properties of that particular control    // here checkbox control type cast is used to access its properties    chk = (CheckBox)(rowItem.Cells[0].FindControl("chk1"));        // chk.checked will access the checkbox state value (on button click event)    if (chk.Checked)    {        Response.Write( GridView1.DataKeys[rowItem.RowIndex ]["CategoryID"].ToString() + "<br />");    }}

Hi, try this code

Arraylist a = new Arraylist();
a.add("1");a.add("2");a.add("2");//Now array multiple values

session["Values"] = a;
