ASP.NET Event Handling tutorials


  • An event is a message sent by an object to signal the occurrence of an action.

  • The action could be caused by user interaction, such as a mouse click, or it could be triggered by some other program logic.

  • The object that raises the event is called the event sender. The object that captures the event and responds to it is called the event receiver.

  • Below is an example of some of the event available:

OnClick: Executes when a button is checked

OnSelectedIndexChanged: Executes when an option in dropdownlist is selected.

OnCheckChanged: Executes when a checkbox or radiobutton are checked


Application Events

The most important application events are:

    1. Application_Start . it is raised when the application/website is started

    2. Application_End . it is raised when the application/website is stopped


Session Events

  • ASP.NET provides two events that help you manage user sessions: the Session_OnStart event, which is raised when a new session begins, and the Session_OnEnd event, which is raised when a session is abandoned or expires.

The Session_OnStart Event:

  • You can handle the Session_OnStart event by adding a subroutine named Session_OnStart to the Global.asax file. The Session_OnStart subroutine is run at the beginning of a request if the request begins a new session. A new session will be started if a request is made that does not contain a SessionID value or if the SessionID property contained in the request references a session that has expired.

  • You can use the Session_OnStart event to initialize session variables as well as to track session-related information.

The Session_OnEnd Event:

  • You can handle the Session_OnEnd event by adding a subroutine named Session_OnEnd to the Global.asax file. The Session_OnEnd subroutine is run when the Abandon method has been called or when the session has expired. A session expires when the number of minutes specified by the Timeout property passes without a request being made for the session.

  • You can use the Session_OnEnd event to clean up session-related information such as information for a user that is tracked in a data source by the SessionID value.

Event Handling Using Controls

  • All ASP.Net controls have events which are fired when user performs certain action on them.

  • For example, when a user clicks a TextBox the 'textbox' event is generated. For handling these events there are in-built attributes and event handlers. To respond to an event, the event handler is coded.

  • By default Visual Studio creates an event handler by including a Handles clause on the Sub procedure. This clause names the control and event that the procedure handles.

  • The following code example shows the markup for aTextBox control for which the TextChanged event is bound to the event handler method named NameChange:

<asp:TextBox ID="textbox1" Runat="server"

Text="" OnTextChanged="NameChange" />


  • Now add the event method to your code. For example, the following code example shows the code for the event handler method named NameChange:

protected void NameChange(object sender, EventArgs e)


//Method for the OnTextChanged event.



The common control events are:







Check box, radio button



Button, image button, link button, image map



Button, image button, link button



List box, drop down list, check box list, radio button list



Text box
