Hi,

I have a web service in which I want to use a session variable that I'll create to be used in the web service.

The variable is called ListOfParts which I want to log to an event log in the web service.

Can I create a session variable to be used in the web service which would be created after creating the ListOfParts which is a count of parts which is done in another class.

What and how do I enable using session variables in the web service in order to see the session variable ListOfParts.  How do I create that session variable?

I am using c# for this effort.

Thanks in advance,

Isaac

In any .NET web application, there are few implicit Context objects available by default. You don't have to enable these. The objects are Server, Application, Request, Response and Session.

You can store any type of data in a Session variable. In C#, it is as simple as:
List<String> nameList = GetList();
Session["MyVar"] = nameList;

And to retrieve it:
List<String> nameList = (List<String>)Session["MyVar"]

Of course, you need to do some sanity checking of the data before you use it after retrieving it from Session.

And note that this code is possible directly in a code-behind file (aspx.cs). If you have a class library code (a simple cs file), then you might have to include necessary namespaces and add System.Web as reference to that class library.
