ASP.NET Enable Session in Web Service Methods

Ever tried accessing session variables in Web Service methods? It won't work unless you add a little property in the WebMethod header of the functions.

For example, the basic hello world:

public void HelloWorld()

Just add the statement EnableSession=true and you'll be able to access session variables found normally in aspx pages like the following sample.

string userid = Session["userid"].ToString();

  2. Its nothing like that. I tried without using that, It worked.
    //Page Load
    Session["sid"] = "123";

    //Web Service Method
    var s = Session["sid"]; //s = "123"
