Returns read-only session-state data from the session data store.

'Declaration Public MustOverride Function GetItemExclusive ( _ context As HttpContext, _ id As String, _ <OutAttribute> ByRef locked As Boolean, _ <OutAttribute> ByRef lockAge As TimeSpan, _ <OutAttribute> ByRef lockId As Object, _ <OutAttribute> ByRef actions As SessionStateActions _ ) As SessionStateStoreData
- Type: System.Boolean%
When this method returns, contains a Boolean value that is set to true if a lock is successfully obtained; otherwise, false.
- Type: System.TimeSpan%
When this method returns, contains a TimeSpan object that is set to the amount of time that an item in the session data store has been locked.
- Type: System.Object%
When this method returns, contains an object that is set to the lock identifier for the current request. For details on the lock identifier, see "Locking Session-Store Data" in the SessionStateStoreProviderBase class summary.
The SessionStateModule object calls the method at the beginning of a request, during the AcquireRequestState event, when the EnableSessionState attribute is set to true, which is the default. If the EnableSessionState attribute is set to ReadOnly, the SessionStateModule object instead calls the GetItem method.
The method returns a SessionStateStoreData object populated with session information from the data store, updates the expiration date of the stored data, and locks the session-item data at the data store for the duration of the request. If no session-item data is found at the data store, the method sets the locked out parameter to false and returns Nothing. This causes the SessionStateModule object to call the CreateNewStoreData method to create a new session item in the data store. If session-item data is found at the data store but the data is locked, the method sets the locked out parameter to true, sets the lockAge out parameter to the current date and time minus the date and time when the item was locked (which is retrieved from the data store), sets the lockId out parameter to the lock identifier retrieved from the data store, and returns Nothing. This causes the SessionStateModule object to call the method again after a half-second interval to attempt to retrieve the session-item information and obtain a lock on the data. If the value that the lockAge out parameter is set to exceeds the ExecutionTimeout value, then the SessionStateModule calls the ReleaseItemExclusive method to clear the lock on the session-item data, and then calls the method again.
The actionFlags parameter is used when the cookieless and regenerateExpiredSessionId attributes are both set to true. An actionFlags value set to InitializeItem indicates that the entry in the session data store is a new session that requires initialization. Uninitialized entries in the session data store are created by a call to the CreateUninitializedItem method. If the item from the session data store is not an uninitialized item, the actionFlags parameter will be set to zero.
Custom session-state store implementers that support cookieless sessions should set the actionFlags out parameter to the value returned from the session data store for the current item. If the actionFlags parameter value for the requested session-store item equals the InitializeItem enumeration value, then the method should set the value in the data store to zero after setting the actionFlags out parameter.
