HttpRuntimeSection.SendCacheControlHeader Property


Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the cache-control:private header is sent as part of the HTTP response.

 property bool SendCacheControlHeader { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
[System.Configuration.ConfigurationProperty("sendCacheControlHeader", DefaultValue=Mono.Cecil.CustomAttributeArgument)]
public bool SendCacheControlHeader { get; set; }
[<System.Configuration.ConfigurationProperty("sendCacheControlHeader", DefaultValue=Mono.Cecil.CustomAttributeArgument)>]
member this.SendCacheControlHeader : bool with get, set
Public Property SendCacheControlHeader As Boolean

Property Value


true if the cache-control:private header is to be sent; otherwise, false. The default value is false.



The HttpResponse class checks both the HttpRuntimeSection.SendCacheControlHeader property and the OutputCacheSection.SendCacheControlHeader property to determine whether to send the cache-control:private header in the HTTP response. If either property is set to false, the header will not be sent. When the cache-control header is set to private, then the client will not cache the response in a shared cache.

Support for the SendCacheControlHeader property in the HttpRuntimeSection class is provided for compatibility with legacy applications; this property is obsolete in the .NET Framework version 2.0. For more information, see the OutputCacheSection class.
