HttpSessionState.Remove Method

Deletes an item from the session-state collection.

Namespace:  System.Web.SessionState
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

'Declaration
Public Sub Remove ( _
	name As String _
)

Parameters

name
Type: System.String
The name of the item to delete from the session-state collection.

If the session-state collection does not contain an element with the specified name, the collection remains unchanged. No exception is thrown.

The following example shows how to store values in session state by using the Add method. It also shows how to remove values in session state by using the Remove method. A Repeater control is used to display the contents of session state on the Web page. The GetEnumerator method is used to iterate through the session-state collection and populate the Repeater control.
