SessionStateModule.Start SessionStateModule.Start SessionStateModule.Start SessionStateModule.Start Event

Definition

The event that occurs when a session is created.

public:
 event EventHandler ^ Start;
public event EventHandler Start;
member this.Start : EventHandler 
Public Custom Event Start As EventHandler 

Examples

The following code example shows the contents of a Global.asax file with the Session_OnStart and Session_OnEnd events defined.

<script language="VB" runat="server">  
Public Sub Session_OnStart()  

End Sub  

Public Sub Session_OnEnd()  

End Sub  
</script>  
<script language="C#" runat="server">  
public void Session_OnStart()  
{  

}  

public void Session_OnEnd()  
{  

}  
</script>  

Remarks

The Start event is raised at the beginning of a request when a new session is started. A new session is started if a request is made that does not contain a session identifier, the session identifier is invalid, or the session associated with a session identifier has expired.

The Session_OnStart event is used to perform any initialization work for a session such as setting up default values for session variables.

You can specify a handler for the Start event by adding a public subroutine named Session_OnStart to the Global.asax file.

For more information about the Global.asax file, see Global.asax Syntax.
