ASP.net Lifecycle Answer to an interview question – Education Career Blog

If you were asked in an interview to describe the ASP.net lifecycle what would you answer?

What I have memorised so far is…

SILVERU or

Start
Initialization
Load
Validation
Postback Event Handling
Render
Unload

Would giving that list be enough of an answer?

I doubt it so if it is not enough then what would one have to say?

Try this.

You also need to know the purpose of each step, and what you should place in each.

For example:

  • When is view state values available on the way in?
  • When is the last time view state values can be changed on the way out.
  • Why is it a bad idea to hit a database in OnInit?

Actually good you asked this question, now I know to probe a bit deeper next time I interview someone 🙂
