Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The time duration in seconds.

The Duration represents the time in seconds that the page or user control is cached. Setting this property establishes an expiration policy for HTTP responses from the page or control to which it applies and will automatically cause the caching of their output.


The Duration must be defined in either the profile or the @ OutputCache directive of a page using the profile.

The following code example shows how to use the Duration property.

// Get the current Duration.
Int32 durationValue = 

// Set the Duration property to 0.
outputCacheProfile.Duration = 0;
