ASP Application_OnStart and Application_OnEnd Events


Application Object Reference Complete Application Object Reference

Application_OnStart Event

The Application_OnStart event occurs before the first new session is created (when the Application object is first referenced).

This event is placed in the Global.asa file.

Note: Referencing to a Session, Request, or Response objects in the Application_OnStart event script will cause an error. 

Application_OnEnd Event

The Application_OnEnd event occurs when the application ends (when the web server stops).

This event is placed in the Global.asa file.

Note: The MapPath method cannot be used in the Application_OnEnd code.

Syntax

<script language="vbscript" runat="server">

Sub Application_OnStart
. . .
End Sub

Sub Application_OnEnd
. . .
End Sub

</script>
