caching a value for Site RRS feed

  • Question

  • User968218215 posted


    I want to cache a string value for 15 mins for my website for all users so the site does not hit a function until the 15 mins are up.

    If strEuro_Buy = String.Empty Then
                strEuro_Buy = getPrices("EUR.buy")
            End If

    I have been looking on google and think that the below is close -

    HttpContext.Current.Cache.Insert("CacheKey", strEuro_Buy, Nothing, New TimeSpan(0, 15, 0), Cache.NoSlidingExpiration, CacheItemPriority.High, Nothing)

    Am I going in the right direction or should i be looking at sessions?  Im a little confused how this would work for all users to the site.

    Thanks for all help...

    If you want all users to see the same value then Cache is the correct thing to use.
