session null

If the session time runs out I get an error when casting Session like this:  string myId=Session["MyId"].ToString();
Is there a build in feature in .net where I do not have to check if Session is null before I use it?

No, if something could be null then you have to manually check in your code, otherwise you will get an error

Starting with the next version of C#--due out with Visual Studio 2015--you will be able to use the null conditional operator ( ? ) when checking for nulls.


string myId=Session["MyId"]?.ToString();

But that means you have to upgrade, or course.
