msCaching

msCaching property

Specifies whether stream data downloaded using XMLHttpRequest is cached to disk or not.

This property is read/write.

IE11

 

Syntax

JavaScript
object.msCaching = cacheState
cacheState = object.msCaching

 

Property values

Type: DOMString

ValueCondition
auto

Disables caching for stream or ms-stream data.

enabled

Enables caching for stream or ms-stream data.

disabled

Disables caching for any data.

 

Remarks

By not caching data streamed using XHR, you can get better battery life on tablets and laptops, and avoid disk latency bottlenecks. To get the current caching state, use msCachingEnabled.

Examples

This example shows how to force caching for a stream of data.


        var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
        xhr.open('GET', url, true);
        xhr.msCaching = 'enabled';  
        xhr.responseType = 'stream';  
        xhr.send();
