Session variable timeout

Hello,

I need some session variables in my application to stay active for 30 days and some for 30 min.  I researched that you can set this in web.config but how do I set this differently for 30 days and 30 mins?

Also, how can I check if the session is timed out and the user needs to login again?

thanks

You can set the timeout programmaticly
But you can only set the timeout globally per session (and not per item)

Regarding the session timeout check, please read this article:
