ImageButton Web Control initialization problem

Hello,

I have a problem with my ImageButton command initialization.  I think if I remember right, the initialization for web controls and the page_init are random?  Anyways, the problem is that my "onCommand" control for the ImageButton uses variables that are initialized by page_init.  How do I set it so that page_init gets run first before my ImageButton does?

Relevant scripts:

(HTML File)
<asp:ImageButton
ID="SomeButton"
onCommand="onCommand_RunButton"

(C# File)
protected void page_init() {
  Run this first.
}

protected void onCommand_RunButton(...) {
  Run this after page_init.
}

It isn't random.....

Page_Init will be called by onCommand_RunButton() .... always..... You don't have to do anything.

However your declaration is just not correct...

It should be

override protected void OnInit(EventArgs e)
  Run this first.
}

I need Page_Init to initialize my C# code-behind.  Did you mean I should put a declaration for onInit in my C# file?  If so, how do I tie it in so that it calls on page_init?  That is where my variables are being initialized.  For example:

(C# File)
int i;
protected void page_init() {
  i = 5;
}

protected void onCommand_RunButton(...) {
  if (i == 5)
    i = 9;
}

That is more or less the logic I have it in right now but when I click on the button in the HTML file, it says "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."  If I take out "if (i==5)" it works, but of course, not what I want it to do.  I guess adding "OnInit" would help, but how can I tell onInit to call page_init?
