Decodes a URL-encoded session identifier obtained from a cookie or the URL.

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

Public Overridable Function Decode (
	id As String
) As String


Type: System.String

The session identifier to decode.

Return Value

Type: System.String

The decoded session identifier.

This method is not intended to be called from application code.

This method is used internally by the SessionIDManager class to decode custom SessionID values created by classes that inherit the SessionIDManager class and override the CreateSessionID and Validate methods. To ensure the fidelity of a custom session-identifier value retrieved from the HTTP request by the GetSessionID method, the SessionIDManager decodes the custom value using the UrlDecode method.

Notes to Inheritors:

For an example of a class that inherits the SessionIDManager class and overrides the CreateSessionID and Validate methods, see the example provided for the CreateSessionID method.
