Server Event Handling in Web Forms Pages

Visual Studio .NET 2003

As with traditional forms, when you work with server controls on a Web Forms page, much of the page's logic involves responding to events raised by controls. However, events work somewhat differently in Web Forms pages than in client-based forms such as Windows Forms.

The following topics explain the event-handling model for Web Forms pages and provide instructions on how to create event handlers.
