Cache.Item Property

Gets or sets the cache item at the specified key.

Namespace:  System.Web.Caching
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public Object this[
	string key
] { get; set; }

Parameters

key
Type: System.String
A String object that represents the key for the cache item.

Property Value

Type: System.Object
The specified cache item.

You can use this property to retrieve the value of a specified cache item, or to add an item and a key for it to the cache. Adding a cache item using the Item property is equivalent to calling the Cache.Insert method.

The following example uses the Item property to retrieve the value of a cached object associated with the Key1 key. It then uses the HttpResponse.Write method to write the value and introductory text and the B HTML element to a Web Forms page.


Response.Write("Value of cache key: <B>" + Server.HtmlEncode(Cache["Key1"] as string) + "</B>");


The following example demonstrates using this property to insert the value of a text box into the cache.


private void cmdAdd_Click(Object objSender, EventArgs objArgs)
{
    if (txtName.Text != "")
    {
        // Add this item to the cache.
        Cache[txtName.Text] = txtValue.Text;
    }
}
