Clear the session when Logout is clicked

Hi Experts,

I have this link in my project to go back to login page.

<a href="login.aspx" id="Logout">Logout"</a>

But before I go to log in page I want to clear the session. What should I do. Thanks.

Try changing the hyperlink to a link button so you can execute a command on button click

<asp:LinkButton id="logoutButton" Text="Logout" OnClick="LinkButton_Click" runat="server"/>

Open in new window


This is an example; I haven't tested it and am not well versed in vb.net
Sub LinkButton_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) 
   'clear current session
    Session.Abandon()
   'redirect to logon page
    Response.Redirect("login.aspx")
End Sub
