Gets or sets a value that specifies whether .aspx pages and .ascx controls use response buffering.

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

[ConfigurationPropertyAttribute("buffer", DefaultValue = true)]
public bool Buffer { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if .aspx pages and .ascx controls use response buffering; otherwise, false. The default is true.

When response buffering is turned on, the page or control output is buffered until after the entire page or control is processed. Do not set Buffer to true if performance is a key consideration.

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

// Get the current Buffer property value.
    "Current Buffer value: '{0}'", pagesSection.Buffer);

// Set the Buffer property to true.
pagesSection.Buffer = true;
