Information about the .asax (asax) file type

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .asax (asax) file type.

.asax
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.

Where this is available we would like to include file format information on .asax files, as well as information on how to view or open files of type .asax. If you know of any information which we have missed then please let us know.
