Does AJAX request go thru full Javascript page cycle (onload, onunload, etc)?

I have functions set in my window.onload and window.onunload events for a page. If that same page gets called via an AJAX request, does the window.onload and window.onunload events get fired within that request?

Remote page? So the page will be loaded by the user? If so, then yes the cycle will be initiated

Hello,

One of the benefits of ajax is not having to reload the page when the server is ready to answer the request.... so no your window events wont get called through ajax. You could call your functions from inside ajax if you wanted?

I understand the page initiating the AJAX request doesn't go thru the page life cycle because no reloading is done. But the AJAX request destination page, does it go thru the whole page life cycle because it's not an actual browser processing the remote AJAX page, but was wondering if the remote page's events get fired. I have some calculations done in my onload on the remote page, so by calling the page thru an AJAX request, does the onload of the remote page still get fired?
