I am trying to add System.Web.HttpApplication to my application.  Any idea how to do this.  I found an example for the Global.asax file but It will not build.  I tried following the directions here -> but it does not work.  Code is copied below.
namespace InheritingHttpApplication 
   public class Global : System.Web.HttpApplication
      public Global()
      protected void Application_Start(Object sender, EventArgs e)
      protected void Session_Start(Object sender, EventArgs e)
      protected void Session_End(Object sender, EventArgs e)
      protected void Application_End(Object sender, EventArgs e)

What do you mean it does not build? Do you get a compiler error? What is the error?

Did you create a Global.asax file or just paste this code into a .cs file named something else? You need to add a Global.asax file to your project and use it. It will create the above file for you. You can then extend it like in his example but there needs to be a Global.asax file in your project if you want to do this.

You add a Global.asax file by selecting Add New Item, then select Global Application Class.

the example never mentioned it to be a global.asax class
he just mentioned that have you seen something like this and you can build something like that easily by inheriting from HttpApplication class

just add a normal class and inherit it from the HttpApplication class as shown by the sample
i tried it and its working as suggested

  Please do not double post. You repeated the information the user already gave us. He said the example is not working for him. I gave a solution to get him up and running. It is true that this can be done without a global.asax file; however, if you had read the article you would see that the author does indeed refer to global.asax.
