Question on Page lifecycle...

Hello All,

I have a question which is pertinent to Page's lifecycle.

I declared a protected static object (global variable) whose value is set
only once when the page is loaded. Will that object's value be accessible
during consequent postbacks or is it set to null after HTML is rendered
initially?

I am assuming that it would be set to null because all the objects are
destroyed since Page object is killed after HTML has been rendered. In this
case ViewState does not make sense because it is an object and not a server
control.....cor rect?

Am I right or can anyone please explain me the concept?

Thanks a bunch!!!

Diffident,
It depends where your object is declared. if you declare a static object in
the Global class (global.asax) this remains alive. Since a page class'
lifecycle is limited, meaning as soon as the generated response stream is
sent out to the browser it is extinguished, it doesn't make sense to do this
inside a page class.

Session variable live in the scope of application. This means that not only
consequent postbacks within the same session will access the same value, but
also other sessions of the same applications will do.

I'm new to ASP.NET and have run across a problem several times while working on web apps. I often need to create content dynamically (based on an event) which contains dynamically created linkbuttons (or other webcontrols). These linkbuttons have to be created after events are processed, and so these linkbuttons cannot have handlers added to them because they are too late in the page lifecycle for the handlers to register. An example:

Inside of a Page class, how do I capture the Request object values before the Page_Load event is called of that Page? I have a situation where I have many server controls on a Page that get created in the constructor of my Page, but I need them to know about some info that get's set via the Page_Load from the Request (and even Session for that matter) thanks!

I have a user control into which I insert a bunch of controls dynamically.

Hi, Is it possible to have programmatic access to the Page object in Application_BeginRequest, or is it too early in the lifecycle...?

I have a page that inherits from a base page that is currently overriding all of the On* events. For the most part I'm accomplishing everything I set out to do with the inheritance, but I wanted to get a little more information to lock down what I think I know and also to answer a couple little questions. Given a base page, and the page inheriting it, as I understand it, the page lifecycle flows like this: 1) Page is requested
