Magic library for this functionality is mighty FancyBox the "tool that offers a nice and elegant way to add zooming functionality for images, html content and multi-media on your webpages. It is built at the top of the popular JavaScript framework jQuery and is both easy to implement and a snap to customize."

Let's see how things are working....

  1. We create web site project inside our VS 2012.
  2. Include into project jQuery in this sample I use latest version 1.7.2.
  3. Also we need to include FancyBox. (It would be very strange to not include it in this sample)

So, our project look's like:

Here you can see our included files inside project, also you can see our test page html and jQuery code.
Most important thing here is that you use class="fancybox" as image control css class.

jQuery code is very very simple as you can see here:

       $(document).ready(function () {

There are more cases in how to use fancybox that you can check at FancyBox.

ASP.NET 4.0 Hosting - :: Initialize assemblies using PreApplicationStartMethod for ASP.NET 4.0 Application

clock December 20, 2013 05:44 by author Robert

Sometimes your ASP.NET application needs to hook up some code before even the Application is started. Assemblies supports a custom attribute called PreApplicationStartMethod which can be applied to any assembly that should be loaded to your ASP.NET application, and the ASP.NET engine will call the method you specify within it before actually running any of code defined in the application.

Lets discuss how to use it using Steps :

1. Add an assembly to an application and add this custom attribute to the AssemblyInfo.cs. Remember, the method you speicify for initialize should be public static void method without any argument. Lets define a method Initialize. You need to write :

[assembly:PreApplicationStartMethod(typeof(MyInitializer.InitializeType), "InitializeApp")]

2. After you define this to an assembly you need to add some code inside InitializeType.InitializeApp method within the assembly.

public static class InitializeType
    public static void InitializeApp()
          // Initialize application


3. You must reference this class library so that when the application starts and ASP.NET starts loading the dependent assemblies, it will call the method InitializeApp automatically.


Even though you can use this attribute easily, you should be aware that you can define these kind of method in all of your assemblies that you reference, but there is no guarantee in what order each of the method to be called. Hence it is recommended to define this method to be isolated and without side effect of other dependent assemblies.

The method InitializeApp will be called way before the Application_start event or even before the App_code is compiled.

This attribute is mainly used to write code for registering assemblies or build providers.
