I am developing a website in C# and

My application demands of getting the class name from object name. For achieving this,
I have used a session object. The snippet is as follows:

Page1 .. (the one sending the session object)
clsCountryMaster obj = new clsCountryMaster();
Session["myObject"] = obj;

Page 2 ...(the one receiving the session object)
object masterobj = Session["myObject"];
e.InputParameters.Add("masterobj", (masterobj.GetType)Context.Items["masterdata"]);

I am getting the following error in Page 2.
The type or namespace name 'masterobj' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

Can any body help me in this connection?

Thanks in advance.

Solution 1

You just can't do this (masterobj.GetType) and do a cast.
You need to know the class name.

If you just need to pass the object over to another method, an easier option for you is to use the object type directly.
e.InputParameters.Add("masterobj", (object)Context.Items["masterdata"]);

object masterobj = (object)Session["myObject"];
