BasePage properties sometimes there, sometimes not.

Hi All,

I have been searching like crazy but can't seem to get the answer I want.

I have a ASP.NET 2.0 project.
I inherit a BasePage called DefaultBasePage to check whether user is logged in.
Also uses properties in this page to check on my master page if I should display the menu or not.
I've got 2 pages here that are exactly the same with regards to this, but one of the pages gets the value from the base page and the other doesn't.

Here is my DefaultBasePage.cs

public class DefaultBasePage : System.Web.UI.Page
{
    private bool bShowHeadersFooters;
    private bool bNeedsToBeLoggedIn = true;

    protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
    {
        base.OnInit(e);

        if (Session["ID"] == null
            && !Request.Url.ToString().Contains("login.aspx")
            && bNeedsToBeLoggedIn)
        {
            Response.Redirect(Application["URL"] + "login.aspx?ReturnUrl=" + Server.UrlEncode(Request.Url.ToString()));
        }
    }
    public bool ShowHeadersAndFooters
    {
        get { return bShowHeadersFooters; }
        set { bShowHeadersFooters = value; }
    }

}

Open in new window


DefaultMaster.master.cs

        if (Page is DefaultBasePage)
        {
            bShowHeadersAndFooters = ((DefaultBasePage)Page).ShowHeadersAndFooters;
            if (Session["ID"] != null)
            {
                if (bShowHeadersAndFooters)
                {
// Show Menu. Works sometimes and sometimes not.
}
}
}

Open in new window


Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as I am banging my head against the wall because of this,

Thanks in advance,
S

Hi,

You're neglecting the stateless nature of the web. Try something like:

public bool ShowHeadersAndFooters
    {
        get { return (bool)Session["ShowHeadersFooters"]; }
        set { Session["ShowHeadersFooters"] = value; }
    }

@seanNij,

Where are you setting your ShowHeadersAndFooters properties? By default it's false.
You must set them somewhere on your page.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

It did not work, however you did give me an idea, ghergu.

So what I've done is this:

In my aspx.cs file I did:

    protected void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Session["ShowHeadersAndFooters"] = false;
    }

Open in new window


and in my master.cs I did:

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
            if (Session["ShowHeadersAndFooters"] != null)
                bShowHeadersAndFooters = (bool)Session["ShowHeadersAndFooters"];
    }

Open in new window


Works like a charm!
Thanks for the idea!
