Please let me know if there is a way I can record the amount of time a user is logged in on my ASP.NET (C#) website.

Thanks!

I would use google analytics as it tracks duration as well.

Then you can go with storing the log details in some of the ways below
1.      Storing in XML (not recommend, if the user size is growing in MB’s)
http://www.codeproject.com/KB/XML/ReadWriteSettings.aspx
2.      Storing in SQLite (powerful standalone small DB)

If you don’t want to store the user details, but want to track the site visitor’s count, then you can go with Google analytics or other visit counter meter available.

Create the GLOBAL.ASAXin the solution and replace the below code on Session_end event
protected void Session_End(Object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    if (Session["USER"] != "" &&  Session["USER"] != null)
    {
        //Insert the Userdetails to DB/XML
         logdetails(Session["USER"].ToString());

       //empty the User Session
        Session["USER"] = "";
    }
}

Hi!
    void Session_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        // Code that runs when a new session is started// You can set when user 's login is Passed successfully.
        Session["myTimeStart"] = DateTime.Now;
    }

    void Session_End(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        // Code that runs when a session ends.
        // Note: The Session_End event is raised only when the sessionstate mode
        // is set to InProc in the Web.config file. If session mode is set to StateServer
        // or SQLServer, the event is not raised.
        Session["TotalTime"] = DateTime.Now - DateTime.Parse(Session["myTimeStart"].ToString());
    }

Thanks!
