is the page caching?

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I am just trying to understand the basics flow to the MVC framework by putting in some breakpoints in the beginning of the actions of a couple of controllers.

One break point is at the HomeController/Index action where it just returns View() of the "Welcome to MVC".  The Second break point is at a SecondController/Index action where it uses the Entity Framework and returns a View() of a list from the db.

When I run this in debug, it breaks at the points I expected when I go from Home page to the Second page controller and back to Home.  However, when I go to the Second page again, it doesn't break at all?  Is the results of the Second page being cached and how and where?  How do you trigger for it to get check if data is old?

I check to see if the persistence is done on the db, by changing the value of a field on the db side and it still did not cause it to break on that action and displays old information in the view.  I am concerned because it is displaying incorrect values on the UI.  I do not have the OutputCache attribute above this action or specified any cache on my web.config.

Thanks in advance for your time :)

Need help with partial page caching


I have a banner on the master page that I don't want cached even though some of the content pages are cached.  I'm using the adrotator control, which I know doesn't cache, but I have code in the AdCreated event, and that does cause it to cache.

I've been struggling with this for several days now.  I've tried putting the code in another page and using an iframe to display it.  This worked except at times what got displayed was the headers of a page within a page withing a page.  This would mysteriously come and go, but when it happened, it would crach browsers and it looked terrible. 

I'm thinking of using ajax, but I don't already have a scriptmanager control on the master page.  Before I remove the scriptmanager control from all the content pages, I'd like to try to use partial page caching.  I've Googled it, but I don't understand what I've read.  CAn someone simplify this for me?

Caching multiple copies of a page

Hi Guys, I have  an aspx page that retrieves and processes an image based on a  query string.The whole operation takes about 2-3 seconds.  However as the nature of the images means they are quite static,a 5 min (or even 5 hour) delay in picking up an updated image is acceptable. Because of this delay I would like to cache the response and only do a proper refresh only periodically. I have added the following to the top of my aspx page.  <%@ OutputCache Location="Any" Duration="600" VaryByParam="*" %> Only the last request appears to be cached - i.e. f  I navigate to ../DisplayImage?ImageId=1Then the page is loaded and Image 1 displayed - subsequent requests are cached.If I navigate to ../DisplayImage?ImageId=2 subsequent requests are cached.However if I go image 1, image 2, image 1 then no caching occurs. I'm wondering if i'm missing something obvious or does IIS7 / ASP.NET just not support this type of caching.Any help would be greatly apreciated.Malachy

is server caching my page ?


Hi there 

I am making some modifcations on a ascx.cs page. When I upload the page to the server, it seems that the changes I made are not taken on board.

In fact if I put a response.redirect or if I remove the page altogether, nothing happens, my page appears on my browser as if nothing had happens. However if I make changes to the ascx page, I can see the changes straight away after uploading.

Even more bizarre, if I open my ascx page and if I remove CodeBehind="Page.ascx.cs" from the top line, I would expect the page to crash, but no, it still works. 

So it does look that the ascx.cs is cached and that whatever I do doesn't overwrite it.

What can I do ?



Output caching a page that requires sql authentication


My understanding of output caching is that a full page is rendered and available at the application server to send to any clients that may request that particular page.  So if you have 5,000 different client requests, each receives the cached page on the server, instead of 5,000 independent connections to the database to retrieve the same exact information.  Another way of looking at this is that the application server, upon an initial visit, connects to the database once, gets the data, renders the pager, and stores it for a period of time to send to any client that requests it.  It's awesomely efficient, really.

My question is what happens if the connection to the database requires authentication?  In this case, to authenticate each of the 5,000 users, must a new connection be opened to verify the user before the caching can be taken advantage of.  I hope not, but how does the application know whether or not to share the rendered page with an unauthenticated user?




Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

I have 2 web pages. First page has a textbox and a button control.

when I enter test and click on the button , system goes to the second page. And in the second page I want to access the Textbox in the first page. When I try to do this I get the following error.

"Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Following is my code :

Dim txt As New TextBox

' Find the server name on the previous page
txt = CType(Page.PreviousPage.FindControl("TextBox2"), TextBox)
If Not IsNothing(txt) Then
Response.Write("[Name Not available]")

I know I could do this with session, but I want to use the Page.PreviousPage.FindControl. Any help is greatly appreciated

Unique content within master page based on conditions met


 Hi all-

I would like to present users with unique content based on certain conditions being met as they land on the home page (default.aspx).  The condition logic will be in the VB code behind Page Load event. The content will go in a content placeholder as specificed from the master page. 

However, the content change wouldn't be something small (ie making a panel or label visible or not) but rather it will be different HTML,  Divs and databound gridview content.  The HTML content will be stored in the database.

Can someone point me in the right direction for best practices on how to accomplish this?


Launch CMD File From ASPX Page


My organization uses a CMD file to install updated files for a major enterprise application. Currently, we send out an email to users with a link to the file and instructions to run it, BUT inevitably users don't update their machines until their in field and try to start the app.


We're now liking the idea of using an ASPX page to prompt the users to run the updates and to capture the fact that the updates have been run. I realize that we can't capture the success or failure of the update. But we'd like to capture the user accessed the page.


Is it possible to embed into the markup for the page a link to the file on the local intranet that the users can click on to run the file?

The user accessing the page would capture that they did just that. We'd deal with wether or not the update was actually installed or if it failed later with them directly.

Need help redirecting users to personalized page


 Hi, first timer here so be gentle.


I've been able to create a cool little website, it's up and running with users logging in and out, I created roles so my administrative team can see sensitive data that's not available to regular and anonymous users.

Now they would like me to create a page specific to each user.  For instance when user A logs in they are redirected to a page that has information that pertains to user A only (like a list of their benefits/ their remaining vacation time). This page needs to be accessible only to user A. 

I've watched a ton of the videos but have yet to see one that covers this topic, any help would be great!!!

ASP.Net Caching problem ??


I'm having a problem with an asp.net 3.0 application using a gridview to display data.  The problem seems to be that despite a brand new .selectCommand being sent to the sqlDataSource, the gridview starts displaying data from *someone else's* query.  For example, user A is logged in and will be working fine until a few page submissions later when the gridview data starts suddenly showing information that belongs to another user. 

This is my first asp.net application, though I've been working with classic asp and ADO for years so I'm used to sending a SQL string and getting back the results from that string.  Apparently there is a complex caching system which is interferring which I do not at all understand so at this point I just want to stop the server from caching any data whatsoever.  Is this possible?

Any and all help will be much appreciated!!

Retrieving a variable from a previous page



I'm looking to have a search page where a user will select an item from a listview, then then taken to another page that wil display data based on their original selection.

A user will type in a string and be presented with a list of usernames that are like that string, when they select a user name who's profile they would like to view I would like the page that they're taken to, to be that users profile.

How would I transfer the variable from the search page to the profile page, and when I work on the profile page, how can I access that variable?


Dynamic page customization in WebForms



I am developing an ASP.NET Webforms application for job advertisements. The application is hosted on my own server and enables registrated users to publish job advertisements with the possibility to submit job applications directly from web. The application essentially consists of two parts: job advertisements and job applications sub-apps. 

The job advertisement application uses RESTful approach, implemented as ASP.NET routing and makes no use of different state variables (like viewstate). I provide custom layout of job advertisement webpage for every client using XML serialization of my internal JobOffer class and using XML ASP.NET control with custom XSLT transformation sheet plus CSS to render the custom design. It is all fine and works perfectly.

The second (job applications) part provides users with a custom webform, which is partically dependent upon the original advertisement (regarding the minimal education level, eligible citizenship or work permissions, licences etc.) and can be tweacked using custom CSS. There is, however, no possibility for custom layout of the elements on this page, which provides a multi-tabbed navigation for different parts of job application. Hence the question 1 (see below).

The application is not ready yet, but I intend to keep it hosted on my own server and provide just some ki
