Skip Monotonous Cache Clearing

You ve got to refresh your browser to see the changes you ve made when modifying ASPX pages. Or do you?

 

By Jeff Prosise

 

Tired of having to refresh the page to clear the browser cache each time you modify an ASPX file during development time? Try adding this C# code snippet to a server-side script block:

 

Response.Cache.SetNoStore ();

 

This statement returns a Cache-Control: private, no-store header in the HTTP response, which instructs a browser not to cache the page.
