Adds an HTTP header to the output stream.
Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
The header is appended after the HTTP headers have been sent.
If you use the method to send cache-specific headers and at the same time use the cache object model (Cache) to set cache policy, HTTP response headers that pertain to caching (Cache-Control, Expires, Last-Modified, Pragma, and Vary) might be deleted when the cache object model is used. This behavior enables ASP.NET to maintain the most restrictive settings. For example, consider a page that includes user controls. If those controls have conflicting cache policies, the most restrictive cache policy will be used. If one user control sets the header "Cache-Control: Public" and another user control sets the more restrictive header "Cache-Control: Private" via calls to SetCacheability, then the "Cache-Control: Private" header will be sent with the response.
