Re: ASP.NET equivalent of a PHP/JS script

actually already has something like this built in. pages contain a viewstate, which is used by the engine to validate posted info for validity (like was this form submitted by the proper aspx page, and so on). page "controls" (which are the various components of a .net web page which can be nested fairly deep inside the page) also use it to save their state.

what you can do there is store a DateTime object in the viewstate, and on postback, you can check to see whether the date listed in the viewstate falls within some pre-determined time span.

it would look something like this:


public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page {
    TimeSpan timestampThreshold = new TimeSpan(0, 0, 5, 0, 0);
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
        if (IsPostBack) {
            object ts = ViewState["TimeStamp"];
            if (ts == null) { // Invalid post back
            DateTime timestamp = (DateTime)ts;

            if (DateTime.Now.Subtract(timestamp) >= timestampThreshold) { // took too long
        ViewState["TimeStamp"] = DateTime.Now;
