Web site deletion events occur in the following cases:
The Web site is deleted through the user interface.
The folder that contains a Web site is deleted in an application that is compatible with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation (such as SharePoint Designer) through remote procedure call protocol (RPC).
The folder that contains a Web site is deleted through Distributed Authoring and Versioning (DAV).
Web site deletion events only occur for the first Web site in a chain of sites. For example, if a Web site at http://TopSite/Site, which has the subwebs http://TopSite/Site/Subsite1 and http://TopSite/Site/Subsite2, is deleted in , only one deletion event occurs, namely, for the http://TopSite/Site root Web site.
This event supports event cancellation and error messages.
You should not use the property setting Status=CancelNoError to cancel an event, since doing so redirects the user to the noninformative "Delete Web" page.
