Members

The HttpCacheControl class has these types of members:

Methods

Properties

The HttpCacheControl class has these properties.

PropertyAccess typeDescription

ReadBehavior

Read/writeGet or set the read behavior to use for cache control on the HttpCacheControl object.

WriteBehavior

Read/writeGet or set the write behavior to use for cache control on the HttpCacheControl object.

 

Remarks

The HttpCacheControl object provides properties to get or set the read and write cache control behavior to be used on the HttpBaseProtocolFilter object. HTTP read requests can use the local HTTP cache for the responses. Content returned by HTTP requests can be written to the local HTTP cache.

The HttpCacheControl object allows a developer to set simple read and write cache control behavior on the HttpBaseProtocolFilter object. To use this feature, an app creates an HttpClient object with a new HttpBaseProtocolFilter object. The CacheControl property on the HttpBaseProtocolFilter object returns an HttpCacheControl object used to set read and write cache behavior for the HttpBaseProtocolFilter and the associated HttpClient object. This determines the read and write cache behavior on responses to HttpClient requests.

Developers can still use the HTTP Cache-Control header for more complete control over caching. The HttpCacheDirectiveHeaderValueCollection provides a collection container for instances of the cache directives in Cache-Control HTTP header on HTTP content associated with an HTTP request or response.
