When does control data binding occur in a life cycle of a page?

I need to execute some code _after_ page controls are bound to data (e.g.
DropDownList). I could probably handle DataBound events for each control.
But if I wanted to place the code in a page handler, where would I put it?
Does Page_Load() event is raised after or before control data binding takes
place?

Thanks,
Bogdan

Hi,

do you mean binding done by data source controls? If you bind manually that
of course happens whenever you call dataBind() for the control, so when that
happens is up to you, the page developer.

Yes you could do that with DataBound event. Data source conrreols also have
their own events like SqldataSource's Selected event

Quite common is that on first request, control are bound at PreRender stage
but on postback they must then be populated before Page_Load because
postback data is already loaded before that, so data in lists etc must exist
so that state change based on postback data, can be made.

SqldataSource for example gets its select operation called in PreRender by
the databound controls.

Hello. I am using databindings to bind my dataset to comboboxes, textboxes and labels. Some of my UI depends on knowing when the user changes the values, but I have some problems knowing when my dataset value is set in the controls. - SelectedIndexChanged event fires during the bind process, so I can't just use that - The binding don't seem to "kick in" until the tab page where the control

I'd like the OnServerValidate method to either execute every time the Submit button is clicked. I am...

Hello everyone, VB2003-Winforms I have a class object (testclass), that I would like to bind parts of to two custom controls (control1 and control2).

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
