Some Basic Clarification On Global.asax?

Feb 8, 2010

I was under the impression till now that Global.asax is used for application level events and it's a common file for all users. Then what does Session_Start event does in this file. If we have to create user session varaibles then Is this the write place to create those? If someone can kindly clear my confusion on this file and it's methods.

C# - Dictionary Lookup Efficiency & Request Scoped Global Variable Accessible By Global.asax And Pages/etc?

Feb 8, 2011

I know there is a couple answered questions on here regarding "request scoped" globals, but I want to nit-pick on something specifically and maybe squeeze some extra enlightenment out of one or two of you.I have an ASP.NET C# Website and a static Dictionary of objects (loaded from DB once on Application start). Each page request will need to do a lookup in the Dictionary (based on a key derived from the request url/etc) and get the appropriate object.The issue is I'm trying to maximize efficiency by reducing the lookups to the Dictionary per Request. Doing just a single lookup within a Page itself is easy enough and I can pass the object to sub controls, etc too.. but global.asax is separate from the Page and it also needs to use the object (in Application_BeginRequest and Session_Start).

So is doing a Dictionary lookup once in Application_BeginRequest, once (when necessary) in Session_Start and once in the Page negligible speed wise, even if there are many requests coming in every second?I would like it if I could just have a Request scoped global variable that I can easily call upon.. the only one I see available though is HttpContext.Current.Items and that is a Dictionary itself.Am I beingridiculously nit-picky with my concern over efficiency? or will these milliseconds (nanoseconds?) get me in the long run when more and more requests are being made?

PS. I currently only have around 100 objects in the Dictionary although this may increase in the future.

C# - Global.asax Application_BeginRequest

Nov 4, 2010

I have a site with multiple domains pointing to it. I wanted to redirect all requests to main domain so I've created a method called RedirectToRealDomain("") to check and redirect all requests to my preferred domainAt the moment it lives on Session_Start but I am planing to move it to Application_BeginRequest event. As I understand Session_Start only raised when new session started but Application_BeginRequest raised on all requests. RedirectToRealDomain method doesn't do any DB lookups or anything expensive apart from comparing strings.

Apr 19, 2010

I'm using the HttpRunTime.Cache.Add to create a routine that runs every 5 mins to post data out of my app to the main DB, and this works fine. However I also need to import some files from disk in this routine. I have my document directory set up in my web.config as a ~/ relative path and resolve this in normal controller actions using Server.MapPath(string). How can I do this in my Global.asax.cs code -when I try to access it, it throws an error?

C# - Server.Transfer In Global.asax?

Dec 29, 2010

I have a custom error handler in the global.asax's Application_Error method, when an error occurs I use the following code to transfer user to the error page:Server.Transfer("/Error/");

However without specifying the actual page name the code above breaks with "Error executing child request for /Error/" exception.So if I use Server.Transfer("/Error/Default.aspx") it works fine with no problems.Also using Response.Redirect("/Error/") works fine too, however we want to keep using Server.Transfer to retain URL displayed in the address bar when the error page is displayed so users can simply refresh the page to retry accessing the original offending URL.Would be grateful if anyone can comment on how to get the Server.Transfer method working without specifying the actual aspx page name.

C# - Global.asax And Web Application Lifetime?

Aug 5, 2010

Question: When a webapplication gets started, it executes Application_Start in global.asax.Now, a web application gets started as soon as the first request for a page in that application reaches the server.But my question is: how long will the application run until the application is stopped.I mean when after the first page request, there's no traffic on the server.I need to know because I intend to start a server that listens on a tcp port in global.asax.And when the application stops, the server ceases to listen to its port.

C# - Using Global.asax To Catch Missing PDF

I'm trying to use the Global.asax file in the root application of the website to catch requests for pdf files in the root that don't exist any more. I've configured iis to send pdf requests to The whole thing works perfectly on development. It also works on the live system with missing .aspx pages, but not .pdf. Instead an "Error Code 64: Host not available". I'm using the Global.asax file to avoid the web.config and child applications (1.1 & 2.0) inheriting settings.


I configured IIS to send .pdf requests to using the Application Configuration dialog on the mappings tab and adding .pdf extension mapped to the aspnet_isapi.dll. "Verify that file exists" is turned off (although I've also tried it turned on).

C# - AuthCookie Not Secure In Global.asax?

Aug 6, 2010

First i am using SSL while logging.

When i log in, i am creating a cookie like this. when i check if it is secure the answer is yes.

UserName.Text, // user name
DateTime.Now, // creation
DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(60),// Expiration


here i get the cookieName as ".ASPXAUTH" and authCookie.Secure value as False. Why is this happening i want the authCookie.Secure value to be true here.

my web config has this:

<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms loginUrl="Login.aspx" defaultUrl="~/Default.aspx" slidingExpiration="true" timeout="120" path="/" requireSSL="true" protection="All">
<httpCookies requireSSL="true"/>

Use Global.asax And Implement Handler For It?

Mar 31, 2011

I have a Global.ascx and I wrote a simple url writer module :

void Application_BeginRequest(object sender, EventArgs e)
string strPath = Context.Request.Url.AbsoluteUri;
string[] sections = strPath.Split('/');
int len = sections.Length;
string strExtention = sections[len - 1].Split('.')[1];
if (strExtention.ToLower().TrimEnd().Equals("xml"))
if (sections[len - 2].Equals("ATM"))
Context.RewritePath("~/Include/XML Files/Orders/TMP/" + sections[len - 1]);
Context.RewritePath("~/Include/XML Files/Orders/" + sections[len - 1]);

it works locally but it dosen't work in the host how I can implement handler for this? Server.Transfer doesn't work also.
