ASP.NET Control, Page and Application execution lifecycle

Erik Porter has compiled links to info on Page lifecycle in ASP.NET. You know, those Load, Init and PreRender events... Well, you'll get a lot more than these if you follow the links!

I particularly recommend Brady Gaster's post (update: link dead) which offers a flat view of all the events from Application to Controls. Only Application_Start and Application_End are missing, but I guess you'd know where to put these ;-)

I'd also add a pointer to the official documentation in the .NET Framework Developer's Guide on MSDN.

Update: a nice picture can be found here.
