Event Data

Property Description
Context Gets the HttpContext object for the current HTTP request.


When you create a DefaultAuthenticationModule delegate, you identify the method to handle the event. To associate the event with your EventHandler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The EventHandler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about EventHandler delegates, see Events and Delegates.
