Azure cache file name RRS feed

  • Question

  • Newbie question please? I am retrieving text file from Azure blog and it seems to cache forever. Can you tell me how to read the file EVERY time and NOT cache it. Thanks.

                    // get the book anchor name which will be used to get book file next
                    string anchorBookUri = "http://az722734.vo.msecnd.net/cdn/Office2013/EN/Data/Office2013.txt";
                    using (HttpClient client = new HttpClient())
                    using (HttpResponseMessage response = await client.GetAsync(anchorBookUri))
                    using (HttpContent content = response.Content)

                        anchorBookAsString = await content.ReadAsStringAsync();

  • Hi Frank14303,

    We can disable the HttpClient Cache by this:

    var filter = new HttpBaseProtocolFilter();
    filter.CacheControl.ReadBehavior = Windows.Web.Http.Filters.HttpCacheReadBehavior.MostRecent;
    filter.CacheControl.WriteBehavior = Windows.Web.Http.Filters.HttpCacheWriteBehavior.NoCache;
    HttpClient client = new HttpClient(filter)
