override GetCacheKey : 
        virtualPath:string -> string

The path to the virtual resource.

Return Value

Type: System.String

A cache key for the specified virtual resource.

Use the GetCacheKey method to provide a custom cache key for virtual resources. If you do not override the GetCacheKey method, the virtual path is used for the cache key.

Notes to Inheritors:

Only override the default GetCacheKey method if creating a cache key based on the virtual path will not work for your application.
