public event EventHandler PreInit

This event enables you to check conditions of the page request, such as whether the page is being loaded in response to a postback. You can also check the values of profile properties.

The event enables you to set values that are used later in the page life cycle. You can dynamically set a master page or a theme for the requested page, and create dynamic controls.

For more information about how the PreInit event fits into the ASP.NET life cycle, see ASP.NET Page Life Cycle Overview.
