Default What if Session Timed Out??

I'm trying to figure out how to determine whether the user's session has timed out or not.
I need them to log back in if it has.
I tried the code below but it didn't work:
The user ends up with a really ugly .NET error.

How can I solve this?
   UserID = Session["UserID"].ToString();

While using the session object in ASP.Net you have to check for its existence else it would throw an exception only. i.e., check whether that session is not equal to empty or null before trying to access it.

Best Regards
