Hello all, I thought of doing something today in asp and realized I had no clue how to do it, though I'm pretty sure it must be possible. I'm not sure exactly how to phrase it though I know exactly what I mean. . an example might suffice. k, everytime someone logs into my site i set a session variable with their userID. I'd like to embed a script in one of the administrative pages that displays how many people are currently logged in at any given time. .is there a way to find out how many sessions have been created? Is this just value stored in some obscure server variable structure?? The only way I could think of doing this otherwise would be updating a dateTime column 'online' in the usersTbl and having that embedded script check the usersTbl for who is online. . but then if they don't formally log out, when could the 'online' column be updated to null? I thought there could be a some routine or scheduled script that runs to clean up the 'online' column for users who were online x hrs ago. .but what if they still are logged in when that script runs? And plus its not accurate, its a guess at that point. And I read in quite a few places that using the on session end, on application end etc in global.asa doesn't always work or is buggy. But my solution seems so yucky/messy. . . Has anyone here done something like this before? Thanx in advance, Athena!
