ASP.NET application file.

ASP.NET only uses the .asax file extension for one file and that is the file global.asax. This file resides in the root of the ASP.NET application. It is a text file, and since it is an optional file not all ASP.NET (i.e. web) applications will have one. It defines functions which are executed on various application and session events.

Can you add to this? Do you know of any applications not already listed which will work with .asax files, view .asax files or open .asax files? Are you able to contribute any additional reference information or file format information about .asax files or have you spotted any errors or omissions? If so please let us know by emailing us at feedback@cryer.co.uk - Thank you.
