protected virtual void Construct()

The Construct method allows design-time code execution of the Page and UserControl controls.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the Construct method of a custom control that is derived from the TemplateControl class.

For the full definition of the MyControl class, see TemplateControl.

// Create an event for this user control
public event System.EventHandler myControl;

// Override the default constructor.
protected override void Construct()
    // Specify the handler for the OnInit method.
    this.myControl += new EventHandler(MyInit);

protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
    myControl(this, e);
    Response.Write("The OnInit() method is used to raise the Init event.");

// Use the MyInit handler to set the Message property
void MyInit(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    Message = "Hello World!";
