page cached that should not be cached

Hi, Thanks for the support.

I'm using ASP.NET 2 but my problem is that I have an web page called: extractimage.aspx that receive a query string parameter and returns an image, so I call it by:


I have a linkbutton in a grid with this link, so I refresh the Grid and the correct image should be shown.

But when I change the image in other page and I try to refresh the Grid, the previous image is shown, not the new one.

It seems the extractimage.aspx web page is cached and I do not want that, I would like the current image is always displayed, not the old one.

I found tracing the page that the second time I call extractimage.aspx, its page_load method does not be called.

What should I do not to caching this web page?

The web page is only:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="extraeimagen.aspx.cs" Inherits="extraeimagen" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<html xmlns="" >

<head runat="server">

<title>Extrae imagen</title>



<form id="form1" runat="server">






thanks a lot,

When you reference the image, add an extra parameter like this:


You can just set "rand" to a random number of some large range. That way, when the browser sees this request, it thinks that it is different from the previous request and will not use the cache. This also means that no image retrieved by this page will be cached, even if you want it to be.

It was an excellent idea to use a random number.

Now It works!

I've read that using the "no cache" method is not reliable. Some browsers will cache it anyway.

I have posted this problem quite a few times but never got a decent answer and I have still not found a solution. Every time I have a gridview when the page is refreshed the data in the gridview does not refresh. You might say well and GridView.DataBind() to the pageload method but I think there is a performance problem if you bind your gridviews every time. For example I have a dropdownlist, a gridview and button and the gridview is supposed to refresh depending on the value in the dropdown when the button is pushed. if you click on the button the gridview data does not change unless y...

i have a toolbar at the top of all my web pages and I am not sure whether it is worth caching or not. this toolbar is in fact a search facility consisting of 4 dropdownlists. 3 of the DDL's are static and 1 is databound. i would like to make the whole toolbar into a user control and cache it. Q1. If one of the DDL's selected item has changed the user control must know not to load from the cache. is it possible to include this kind of logic to a cached user control? Q2. Is it worth caching my toolbar? Or should I just consider caching the 1 databound DDl instead? any help much apprec...

To cache or not to cache
It's a well known fact that it's a good practice to cache results of SQL queries. But here as everywhere we should limit ourselfs and not to cache everything, shouldn't we? ) For example, you know that in facebook you can enter information about yourself - first name, last name, all your schools, jobs and so on. This data changes very rarely. So, as books say this data is perfect to be cached. But, you see, there can be millions of users with there profiles in our cache. So.. to cache or not to cache? )  it is a good practice to use limited size content and low edit freque...

To Cache or Not To Cache?
Hello, I'd like the opinion of the community on this question. We've just completed a migration from Exchange 5.5 to GroupWise 7. Migration went well. Right now, everyone is using WebAccess but I am rolling out the GroupWise Windows client (with latest FTFs) along with an updated XP SP2 workstation image shortly, to the office people. They had been using Outlook with Exchange, no caching. We have 6 locations with office people. About 25 are local to the PO server. The other locations, ranging from 25 to 8 per location are connected to the PO server via a T-1 WAN lin...

I am really confused here. What I have are two forms one is where I get metadata for a document and next page where the user uploads the file for that document.

I am not sure how to accomplish this. I tried using ca...

Web Form pages are cached locally in browser.
Hi All, I have a problem with my ASP.NET application. When a user logs into the system and does some operations and clicks on Logout then the user details are cleared from Session and the application redirects to the HomePage. Next another user, logs into the system (using the same browser) and clicks on the browsers back button and was able to look at the pages visited by the previous user. I have set the "no-cache" option for my web form. Still the problem exists. Is there any workaround for this. Thanks in advance. Thivya     Please refer to the following article to ...

HiWe had a debate here at our office what happens if you add an item to the cache _without_ telling anything about expiration times.If you type...cache("foo")=myobj...will myobj be placed in the cache...1. Forever (if the GC doesn't collect it because of high memory use)2. Some unknown (to us) default expiration timeThanks in advanceR If you don't provide any dependencies or expiration time then the object remains in the cache for the duration of the AppDomain being up.  However, as always, there is a wrinkle.  If the worker process starts getting low on memory, then objects...

.Net Caching Ughhhh (Micro-caching)
I'm designing an application where data is continuous and becomes dirty in a matter of seconds. The load is also high and therefore, to avoid straining the database server, i cache all data for a couple of seconds. That's fine. However, some data are HIGHLY VOLATILE and requires the most latest data...for these types of data, I use 1 second caching. I done benchmarks of 1-6 second caching and the benefits on a high load server is enormous. However there is a problem with this micro caching technique.....the problem is...some of the objects get destroyed as soon as it is pulled out. ...

But Reflector shows that the Cache class does not use the singletonn design pattern.
