Set a value for a label in the master page.

Mar 14 2013 12:35 AM
hi guys i have a problem,

I creating a web site which has a master page..The log in page is not a content page of the master page..When user logged in it redirects to the home page and it is a content page of the master page..With the home page all the other pages are content pages.
when the user logged it is easy to show the user name in a label which is in the master page.Because it will show in other all pages.

this is the code i wrote in the master page pageload.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (Session["CompanyID"] != null)
        {
                 
             //Label1.Text = "Your text here";

            string namae = (string)Session["user"];
            Label1.Text = namae;
        }
        else
        {
            Response.Redirect("default.aspx");
        }
   }

But it gives an error...

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Line 30:         }
