Good Afternoon.

I'm working with the following web pages using ms vwd 2010 express:
    Site.Master/Site.Master.vb, Login.aspx/Login.aspx.vb

I have the following code in the Login.aspx.vb program:

    Dim WelcomeLabel As New Label
    WelcomeLabel = CType(Master.FindControl("WelcomeLabel"), Label)
    WelcomeLabel.Text = "Welcome " & OLEdr.Item("ho1FirstName")

    Dim LogHyperlink As New HyperLink
    LogHyperlink = CType(Master.FindControl("LogHyperlink"), HyperLink)
    LogHyperlink.Text = "Log Out"
    LogHyperlink.NavigateUrl = "Exit.aspx"

When a user logs in successfully the LogHyperlink is changed from Log In to
Log Out and the WelcomeLabel contains the text "Welcome " and person's first name.
This all works fine.

However, the code only works for the Login.asp page.  When I navigate to another
page, say About.aspx (which also uses the Site.Master), the Site.Master
page is back to the orginal and I have lost the changes the code made.

Is it possible to make the changes persist for the session across all the
web pages?  All the web pages use the Site.Master.

I have included the Site.Master page below.

Thank you.
