Global.asax methods in Asp.net web application

Experts,

I have just created a new Asp.net web application and could not find "Application_AuthenticateRequest" and "Application_AuthorizeRequest" methods in Global.asax.cs file but can see other methods Session_Start,Session_End,Application_Start,Application_End and Application_Error methods.

The Global.asax.cs file is inheriting from System.Web.HttpApplication and if I go to definition and can see "public event EventHandler AuthenticateRequest" and "public event EventHandler AuthorizeRequest" as events.

How can I add "Application_AuthorizeRequest and Application_AuthenticateRequest"
methods to the Global.asax.cs file?

Thanks in Advance

Hi
You can directly add those two methods directly in same file.
protected void Application_BeginRequest(object sender, EventArgs e)
{

}

protected void Application_AuthenticateRequest(object sender, EventArgs e)
{

}

Open in new window

After that add debugger for these functions, check whether execution pointer comes there or not.

I can add those methods directly , but  just wondering I can't see the methods using intellisense ? Any idea ?

They are not in intellisense but mainly work based on convention. You can add handler for an application level Event by using Application_eventname.
