Property Value

Type: System.Web.SessionState.HttpSessionState
An HttpSessionState representing the ASP.NET session state object for the current session.

The example below uses session state to determine how many times a particular session accesses the XML Web service method SessionHitCounter. In this example, the EnableSession property of the WebMethodAttribute is set to true in order to gain access to session state.

<%@ WebService Language="C#" Class="Util" %>

 using System.Web.Services;

 public class Util: WebService {
   [ WebMethod(Description="Per session Hit Counter",EnableSession=true)]
    public int SessionHitCounter() {
       if (Session["HitCounter"] == null) {
          Session["HitCounter"] = 1;
       }
       else {
          Session["HitCounter"] = ((int) Session["HitCounter"]) + 1;
          }
       return ((int) Session["HitCounter"]);
    }   
 }
