My web site does not always call Global.asax

Unless I specifically rebuild my website, upon running the application from Visual Studio, the line of command does not stop at a breakpoint in the Global.asax file. It's like the object is in memory and the code is ignored.


Can someone please explain this to me?

Thanks,

When you run website from visual studio, it is run under ASP.NET Development Server. See the small icon at the bottom right of the window. You have to stop the application from there and then restart it from visual studio. Otherwise if you simply stop from visual studio window, application is still running in ASP.NET Development Server.

Sounds like you are using the Application_Start event which only runs the first time the applciation starts try using the session_start event instead

Yes, I was using Application_Start. But I want it called each time I start. I now understand (from the first post) why it was only hitting in Application_Start after I recompiled. But I'd like to use a method where I do not need to stop the integrated dev. environment. What property gets called each time I start the website, regardless of whether I am running from VS or not?

As I said in my previous post I think you want Session_start

I tried making a constructor for Global, but that did not work because Contact was null.
