I am trying to cache some data and pass it to an ASHX handler page to print some barcodes with a 3rd party tool.

I am able to create the cache in my aspx page and pass the data to it, but when I try to retrieve it in the ashx page, I get a "Reference to a non-shared member requires an object reference.

Here is my code in the aspx
            Cache.Insert("DataGridCache", DS, Nothing, DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(10), TimeSpan.Zero)


and my code in the ashx
        Dim DataGridCache As DataSet = CType(Cache.Get("DataGridCache"), DataSet)

hi
try something like this
SET :
HttpCookie cookName = new HttpCookie("Name");
cookName.Value = "Pandian";

GET :

string name = Request.Cookies["Name"].Value;

using VB,net, but I dont think that matters if I convert above to vb.

If I use this I get an 401 error.  The aplication is windows auth, but the handler needed to be anonyomous so I was able to make that change.

however, any attempt to pass a parameter fails.

Try changing

Dim DataGridCache As DataSet = CType(Cache.Get("DataGridCache"), DataSet)

to

Dim DataGridCache As DataSet = CType(HTTPContext.Current.Cache.Get("DataGridCache"), DataSet)
