How can I initialize session variables in asp.net when I start the application?  All of them without knowing their names in particular.

If you are looking to loop through the session variables you could use

SessionStateItemCollection items = new SessionStateItemCollection();
foreach (string s in items.Keys)
{
// Do something
}

Open in new window


For some more information on session variables have a look at this MSDN page

And how would you expect that to happen? No one is actually using your application at the time it is started by IIS, so there is no session. A session only exists when a user begins interacting with your application. So is what you are asking how to have a default value for a particular set of session values?

Thank you guys.  I think I have a deeper problem to solve as some session variables are initialized and another web page tries to use them without being set for that particular web page.  

Not really sure how to address the situation.  Maybe I need to append the page name into the session variable name.

Oops, I really wanted to give credit to both the respondents.  Not sure how to correct it.
