SharePoint web part lifecycle
For various reasons, I’ve found myself doing Web Part development for SharePoint 2007. While I suspect I’ll be blogging more thoroughly about it later (possibly even via SharePoint Blues, who knows) , I thought I’d contribute my first useful SharePoint link: The lifecycle of SharePoint Web Parts.
My WebForms experience is rather limited, but on the surface, the list looks a lot like a WebForms control’s life cycle. The reason I needed this list specifically is that I wanted to know the point at which I could safely assume that other web parts would be connected and their data would be available.
