OutputCacheSettingsSection.OutputCacheProfiles Property

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

public OutputCacheProfileCollection OutputCacheProfiles { get; }

The OutputCacheProfiles property allows you to programmatically access the outputCacheProfiles element in a configuration file. You can use the OutputCacheProfiles property to modify the outputCacheProfiles element programmatically.

The outputCacheProfiles section contains OutputCacheProfile objects that represent output cache settings that may be used by pages in the application. These settings can be applied to a page by setting the CacheProfile attribute of the @ OutputCache directive. Apply the profile to control caching attributes such as dependencies, cache location, and cache expiration time.

The @ OutputCache directive can override all the settings contained by an OutputCacheProfile except the Enabled property. This is to ensure you can enable or disable the OutputCacheProfile without having to modify the directives in all the pages that might have overridden it.

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

// Get the current OutputCacheProfiles property value.
OutputCacheProfileCollection outputCacheProfilesValue =
