Could you please show me where i have to use that code i already attached my code

    // Readonly properties can only be set in initialization or in a constructor
    public static readonly ShoppingCart Instance;
    public const string CartSessionKey = "CartId";
    // The static constructor is called as soon as the class is loaded into memory
    static ShoppingCart()
    {
        // If the cart is not in the session, create one and put it there
        // Otherwise, get it from the session
        if (HttpContext.Current.Session[CartSessionKey] == null)
        {
            Instance = new ShoppingCart();
            Instance.Items = new List<CartItem>();
            HttpContext.Current.Session[CartSessionKey] = Instance;
        }
        else
        {
            Instance = (ShoppingCart)HttpContext.Current.Session["ASPNETShoppingCart"];
        }

Why are you using a singleton pattern for something that should be configured per user?

I used becuase example used "singleton pattern", Shopping cart is working well, only issue
is how to give user to unique number,
I need to add some customer unique key for following method
public void AddItem(int productId)
    {
        // Create a new item to add to the cart
        CartItem newItem = new CartItem(productId);

        // If this item already exists in our list of items, increase the quantity
        // Otherwise, add the new item to the list
        if (Items.Contains(newItem))
        {
            foreach (CartItem item in Items)
            {
                if (item.Equals(newItem))
                {
                    item.Quantity++;
                    return;
                }
            }
        }
        else
        {
            newItem.Quantity = 1;
            Items.Add(newItem);
        }
    }

kaufmed is right, the singleton pattern does not make any sense in this context. Either make it non static or find a better working shopping cart example.

Anyhow, you can try replacing this:
    // Readonly properties can only be set in initialization or in a constructor
     public static readonly ShoppingCart Instance; 
    public const string CartSessionKey = "CartId";
    // The static constructor is called as soon as the class is loaded into memory
    static ShoppingCart()
    {
        // If the cart is not in the session, create one and put it there
        // Otherwise, get it from the session
        if (HttpContext.Current.Session[CartSessionKey] == null)
        {
            Instance = new ShoppingCart();
            Instance.Items = new List<CartItem>();
            HttpContext.Current.Session[CartSessionKey] = Instance;
        }
        else
        {
            Instance = (ShoppingCart)HttpContext.Current.Session["ASPNETShoppingCart"];
        }
    }

Open in new window


with the following code to have one shopping cart per session (and hence per user):
    // Readonly properties can only be set in initialization or in a constructor
    public const string CartSessionKey = "CartId";
    public static ShoppingCart Instance
    {
      get{
        // If the cart is not in the session, create one and put it there
        // Otherwise, get it from the session
        if (HttpContext.Current.Session[CartSessionKey] == null)
        {
            var instance = new ShoppingCart();
            instance.Items = new List<CartItem>();
            HttpContext.Current.Session[CartSessionKey] = instance;
            return instance;
        }
        else
        {
            return (ShoppingCart)HttpContext.Current.Session[CartSessionKey];
        }
      }
    }

This should be working, even though I find the example code a bit "weird" :-) Cheers.

I just googled your code and found many related posts. There are two ways to solve the issue (the first one is similar to mine so even though i did not test it, it will probably work):
