	HttpContext context,
	int timeout

The session-state Timeout value for the new SessionStateStoreData.

Return Value

Type: System.Web.SessionState.SessionStateStoreData

A new SessionStateStoreData for the current request.

The SessionStateModule object calls the CreateNewStoreData method at the beginning of a request for an ASP.NET page, during the AcquireRequestState event. The CreateNewStoreData method is called if:

  • the incoming request has no session ID, or

  • the incoming request has a session ID, but the session is not found in the data store.

The CreateNewStoreData method creates a new SessionStateStoreData object with an empty ISessionStateItemCollection object, an HttpStaticObjectsCollection collection, and the specified timeout value. The HttpStaticObjectsCollection collection for the ASP.NET application can be retrieved using the GetSessionStaticObjects method.

For an example of a session-state store provider implementation, see Implementing a Session-State Store Provider.
