    Opinion on Class Property VS Session Var

    Hi Guys,

    I am looking for a way to store some data that i will need to call on alternate pages. What is the best way to accomplish this task. Should i define a property in my class (not sure if it will hold the page refresh) or should i send me data into a custom session variable. Or is it best to use a cookie? I've never used cookies before so i am ignorant to their ease or difficulty of use. Which way is best? I will need to be able to call this information and then overwrite it upon demand.

    Thanks.

    then you’ll most likely need session variables, as objects don’t persist in a page reload.
