Session data still available after session timeout RRS feed

    I set session timeout to 1 minute. But after a couple of minutes with no action, the code can still get the user ID stored in session variable when a button is clicked on the web from.

    Any idea why?

    How do you initialize that? You could just have some logic that restore again the same value when the next session starts.

    I would show SessionID and the session start full date time (initialized iin the Session_Start event). It should allow to make 100% sure if this is the same session or not by showing at least a value that is expected to change.

    You could check if session = null and do a Response.Redirect("Home.aspx");

    if(Session["UserId"] == null)

    That's exactly what I did.

    After a couple of minutes, Session["UserId"] is still not null, even though in Web.config the session timeout is set to 1 minute.

    But when do you initialize this session variable? Could it be that you initialized this session variable for another session?

    This is why I suggested earlier to show the SessionID and the start date/time for the session. it would allow to make 100% sure if this is the same session or if this is another session.
