Are your users being redirected to a secure page to login? Switching between Secure pages and non-secure pages is effectively using two different domains in terms of session variables. Therefore, you cannot add the CandidateId to the session until after you have redirected the user to the non-secure domain. I would suggest passing it through as a query string value (encrypted if necessary) and then pulling it from the URL.

No.. its not a secure domain... i am using the same method.. in some of other pages but  it is working for me..

the only difference is.. that.. login page and successfull page is at root. but other pages in a seperate directory within a root...


but i do not know... why...

some of the time there comes error of  Inherits="applicationname.pageName" at the page level.. as well..

I have a similar problem, My problem is I'm opening a javascript pop up window  in the client side and update a session in the C# application. What i have in the popup window is a asp calendar control. When you change the date it gets the date you selected and update the session and close the the popupwindow by calling window.close javascript. Same time it do a submit(); onunload of the popwindow to the parent window. This post backs the parent page and comes with the updated session. But i saw when testing the session value get updated at sometimes but not other times. Any Solution. I also find out this happens when you empty session value after assigning it to a string in parent window in my case which is needed to do. Any body have a solution to work this out

As you are saying your login page is in root directory & othere are in inner directory. Please check you may have created virtual directory in the root directory & have puted the web.config file in inner directory. This will create a new application in the root application, because of this you are not able to share the session.
Thanks & Regards,

This shoulds like an issue of cookies being disabled. Have you checked this as well?

10/19/2005 1:24:22 PM
This may be as simple as using Response.Redirect when you should use Server.Transfer.

try switching.

Response.redirect("form name") just sends the user to a new form Server.transfer("form name") will show the new forn but keep all session and global variabes intact.  I used it to solve a problem I had thanks for the reminder.  Ohh PS also add the line Server.transfer("form name", True) directly under the session variable.

Passing Values from a Web Form to Another Web Form
Hello All! I am trying to pass values from one web form to another web form. I know that there are 3 ways of doing this: queryString, Server.Transfer and Session. I am using the Server.Transfer method. But I am not able to create, in my 2nd web form, an instance of my 1st web form. My 1st Web form is named CallTrack.aspx and my 2nd is named Export.aspx.
