Protected Overridable Sub Initialize

The Initialize method is called after the provider is registered with the ASP.NET compilation system. The Initialize method is used to provide any initialization required after the VirtualPathProvider instance is placed into the environment the application occupies.

The following code example is an implementation of the Initialize method that sets the path to a data file from the application's HostingEnvironment instance. For the full code required to run the example, see the Example section of the VirtualPathProvider class overview topic.

Protected Overrides Sub Initialize()
  ' Set the datafile path relative to the application's path.
  dataFile = HostingEnvironment.ApplicationPhysicalPath & _
    "App_Data\XMLData.xml"
End Sub
