HttpResponse.BufferOutput Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether to buffer output and send it after the entire page is finished processing.

Namespace: System.Web
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public bool BufferOutput { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_BufferOutput ()

/** @property */
public void set_BufferOutput (boolean value)

public function get BufferOutput () : boolean

public function set BufferOutput (value : boolean)

Property Value

true if the output to client is buffered, otherwise false. The default is true.

The following code example sets the ContentType property for the response to image/jpeg, calls the Clear method to remove all headers and other content that might be attached to the response, and then sets the BufferOutput property to true so that the entire page will be processed before any content is sent to the requesting client.

For a complete example, see the HttpResponse class.

// Set the page's content type to JPEG files
// and clear all response headers.
Response.ContentType = "image/jpeg";
// Buffer response so that page is sent
// after processing is complete.
Response.BufferOutput = true;
