HttpResponse.AddCacheDependency(CacheDependency[]) HttpResponse.AddCacheDependency(CacheDependency[]) HttpResponse.AddCacheDependency(CacheDependency[]) HttpResponse.AddCacheDependency(CacheDependency[]) Method

Definition

Associates a set of cache dependencies with the response to facilitate invalidation of the response if it is stored in the output cache and the specified dependencies change.

public:
 void AddCacheDependency(... cli::array <System::Web::Caching::CacheDependency ^> ^ dependencies);
public void AddCacheDependency (params System.Web.Caching.CacheDependency[] dependencies);
member this.AddCacheDependency : System.Web.Caching.CacheDependency[] -> unit
Public Sub AddCacheDependency (ParamArray dependencies As CacheDependency())

Parameters

dependencies
CacheDependency[]

A file, cache key, or CacheDependency to add to the list of application dependencies.

Exceptions

This method was called too late in the cache processing pipeline, after the cached response was already created.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to create a cache dependency by using the AddCacheDependency method and a CacheDependency object.

        // Make the page invalid if either of the
        // cached items change or expire.        
        Response.AddCacheDependency(authorsDependency);

        // Display the current time for cache reference
        lblOutputCacheMsg.Text = DateTime.Now.ToString();

Remarks

The AddCacheDependency method allows dependencies to be created between cached responses and a CacheDependency object.
