VB.NET 2003: session variables?


New member
I've been working w/an office intranet w/a SQL backend. It's based on the I-Buy -Spy portal tech. Anyway, today I was having problems w/a date I needed saved between post-backs. I suggested a session variable but my boss instead used a hidden label text field to store the data. He said it was a better solution but why? The session variable only would've taken < 64 bytes so storage or network bandwidth considerations should be irrelevant and since it's a date field security wouldn't be an issue either.
