ASP.NET: Globally Unique Identifiers

The GUID is great for anything requiring uniqueness (.NET Framework).

GUIDs are very useful for many tasks on websites. Generate a unique cookie, record identifier, file name, prevent forms from being posted twice, etc...

string guid = System.Guid.NewGuid().ToString("N");
Dim guid As String
guid = System.Guid.NewGuid().ToString("N")
