Controller.Initialize Method

.NET Framework 4

Initializes data that might not be available when the constructor is called.

Namespace:  System.Web.Mvc
Assembly:  System.Web.Mvc (in System.Web.Mvc.dll)

protected override void Initialize(
	RequestContext requestContext


Type: System.Web.Routing.RequestContext
The HTTP context and route data.

This method cannot be called directly. Override this method in order to provide additional processing tasks before any ActionResult methods are called, such as setting the thread culture or assigning a custom provider for TempData objects. If you override this method, call the base control's Initialize method.

The following example shows how to override the Initialize method to provide additional processing when the controller class is instantiated.

protected override void Initialize( RequestContext rc) {
    myCtxInit( rc.HttpContext );
    MyRDinit( rc.RouteData );
