Raises the PreInit event at the beginning of page initialization.
Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
The method is called at the beginning of the page initialization stage.
After the method is called, personalization information is loaded and the page theme, if any, is initialized. This is also the preferred stage to dynamically define a PageTheme or MasterPage for the Page.
Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Handling and Raising Events.
The method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.Notes to Inheritors
When overriding in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's method so that registered delegates receive the event.
