Alive!!! It’s alive!!…
The page is ALIVE!!!!!
I don’t want to sound like a nag or like I’m harping on the same issue over and over, but ASP.NET is really about events and objects. The ASP.NET page is no exception. It is an object in the eyes of ASP.NET just like anything else. It has properties and methods and can be interacted with, similar to the other objects you’ve seen so far, and the plethora of things to come as you move through the remainder of this book.
Because events are a big part of ASP.NET and also a huge part of the power of the ASP.NET page object, it’s important to look closely at these event and the order in which they occur so that you can utilize them to their fullest potential.
