View Full Version : Getting the Session ID...

Jun 18th, 2002, 04:38 PM
I have a site that I have users and passwords assigned - I want to be able to have a user listing with users online/offline etc. Something that would accurately tell me who is logged on and when...

Would this be done with a database?

I looked at this site and it looks as if at the start of every "session" it tracks the session ID...

How can I get the Session ID from the web server using ASP..?

Is it:
theID = Session.SessionID

Would that be the right code?

Thanks for your help - if this post seems a little unclear, I'm sorry.. I don't know if I even understand it

P.S. - I'm not asking for the code - just tips on the best way to do this... (Using a combo of ASP and cookies???)

A little reference material, I hope helps out.

Actually, you can find an example of this, who's online right now (I believe on w3schools.com even!) if you look at the global.asa file and APPLICATION (not session) variables.
