Namespace:  System.Net.Cache
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public enum HttpCacheAgeControl

Member nameDescription
NoneFor internal use only. The Framework will throw an ArgumentException if you try to use this member.
MinFreshContent can be taken from the cache if the time remaining before expiration is greater than or equal to the time specified with this value.
MaxAgeContent can be taken from the cache until it is older than the age specified with this value.
MaxStaleContent can be taken from the cache after it has expired, until the time specified with this value elapses.
MaxAgeAndMinFreshMaxAge and MinFresh.
MaxAgeAndMaxStaleMaxAge and MaxStale.

This enumeration is used by members of the HttpRequestCachePolicy class to configure the time values for cache policies.

The following code example creates a policy based on MaxAgeAndMinFresh.

public static HttpRequestCachePolicy CreateFreshAndAgePolicy(TimeSpan freshMinimum, TimeSpan ageMaximum)
    HttpRequestCachePolicy policy = 
        new HttpRequestCachePolicy(HttpCacheAgeControl.MaxAgeAndMinFresh, ageMaximum, freshMinimum); 
    return policy; 
    static HttpRequestCachePolicy* CreateFreshAndAgePolicy(TimeSpan freshMinimum, TimeSpan ageMaximum)
        HttpRequestCachePolicy* policy = 
            new HttpRequestCachePolicy(HttpCacheAgeControl::MinFreshAndMaxAge, ageMaximum, freshMinimum); 
        return policy;
