CacheDependency.SetUtcLastModified Method (DateTime)


Marks the time when a dependency last changed.

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

protected void SetUtcLastModified(
	DateTime utcLastModified


Type: System.DateTime

The time when the dependency last changed.

The following code example shows a class that inherits from the CacheDependency class. It creates a public method, ResetDependency, that uses the SetUtcLastModified method to change the time at which the dependency was modified, and then calls the NotifyDependencyChanged method.

' Declare the class.
Public Class CustomCacheDependency 
   Inherits CacheDependency

     ' Constructor with no arguments 
     ' provided by CacheDependency class.
     Public Sub New()
     End Sub ' New

     ' Declare a Boolean field named disposedValue.
     ' This will be used by Disposed property.
     Private disposedValue As Boolean                

     ' Create accessors for the Disposed property.
     Public Property Disposed As Boolean
           Return disposedValue
       End Get
       Set (ByVal value As Boolean)
           disposedValue = value
       End Set
     End Property

     ' Create a public method that sets the latest
     ' changed time of the CustomCacheDependency
     ' and notifies the underlying CacheDependency that the 
     ' dependency has changed, even though the HasChanged
     ' property is false.
     Public Sub ResetDependency()
        If Me.HasChanged = False              
           NotifyDependencyChanged(Me, EventArgs.Empty)
        End If
     End Sub

     ' Overrides the DependencyDispose method to set the
     ' Disposed proerty to true. This method automatically
     ' notifies the underlying CacheDependency object to 
     ' release any resources associated with this class. 
     Protected Overrides Sub DependencyDispose()
        Disposed = True
     End Sub

 End Class
