Hi,

I have some session variables in ASP that I would like to convert to ASP.NET session variables so that I can use them on the .net pages

there are 2 possiblilites I could use

Sessionstate.asp
contains a form with the following textfields:
username
company

this then gets redirected to sessionstate.aspx

set the ASP.Net session states
username = request.form("username")
company= request.form("company")


or

sessionstate.aspx convert the session variables

is this possible?

Thanks for any help

You can set or change the session variables on any page that you like. You won't have to create a separate page and redirect to it.

Session("username") =  usernameTextbox..Text
Session("company") = companyTextBox.Text

Apologies for not being very clear, the user in this case is logged in from an ASP page but ASP.Net pages do not recognise asp variables thus I have created the redirect pages from an ASP to ASPX page.

Then when you redirect it to sessionstate.aspx set the variables this way:

Session("username") =  request.form("username")
Session("company") = request.form("company")

Read this quick article about session best practices, it can help guide you a bit.
