Definition

Adds a group of file names to the collection of file names on which the current response is dependent.

Overloads

Adds a group of file names to the collection of file names on which the current response is dependent.

public:
 void AddFileDependencies(System::Collections::ArrayList ^ filenames);
public void AddFileDependencies (System.Collections.ArrayList filenames);
member this.AddFileDependencies : System.Collections.ArrayList -> unit
Public Sub AddFileDependencies (filenames As ArrayList)

Parameters

filenames
ArrayList ArrayList ArrayList ArrayList

The collection of files to add.

Examples

The following example is an ASP.NET page that is output cached. The code for the page creates an ArrayList of file paths, and then passes the ArrayList as the parameter in a call to the AddFileDependencies method. This makes the output cached response invalid if any of the files specified in the ArrayList changes.

Adds an array of file names to the collection of file names on which the current response is dependent.

public:
 void AddFileDependencies(cli::array <System::String ^> ^ filenames);
public void AddFileDependencies (string[] filenames);
member this.AddFileDependencies : string[] -> unit
Public Sub AddFileDependencies (filenames As String())

Parameters

filenames
String[]

An array of files to add.

Examples

The following example adds an array of file names to the AddFileDependencies file dependency list. If the files changes, the cached response is invalidated.

<%@ Import namespace="System.IO" %>

<script runat="server">
    private void Page_Load()
    {
        String[] FileNames = new String[3];
        FileNames[0] = "Test.txt";
        FileNames[1] = "Test2.txt";
        FileNames[2] = "Test3.txt";
        Response.AddFileDependencies(FileNames);
        Response.Write("File Dependencies sucessfully added!");
    }
          
</script>

<%@ Page Language="VB" %>
<%@ Import namespace="System.IO" %>

    Sub Page_Load()
        Dim FileNames(2) As String
        FileNames(0) = "Test.txt"
        FileNames(1) = "Test2.txt"
        FileNames(2) = "Test3.txt"
        Response.AddFileDependencies(FileNames)
        Response.Write("File Dependencies sucessfully added!")
