Cache.NoAbsoluteExpiration Field


Used in the absoluteExpiration parameter in an Insert(String, Object) method call to indicate the item should never expire. This field is read-only.

public: static initonly DateTime NoAbsoluteExpiration;
public static readonly DateTime NoAbsoluteExpiration;
 staticval mutable NoAbsoluteExpiration : DateTime
Public Shared ReadOnly NoAbsoluteExpiration As DateTime 

Field Value


The following example demonstrates how to use the NoAbsoluteExpiration field to disable absolute expirations when inserting an item in the Cache.

Cache.Insert("DSN", connectionString, null, System.Web.Caching.Cache.NoAbsoluteExpiration, TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10));

Cache.Insert("DSN", connectionString, Nothing, System.Web.Caching.Cache.NoAbsoluteExpiration, TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10))


When used, this field sets the absoluteExpiration parameter equal to MaxValue, which is a constant representing the largest possible DateTime value, 12/31/9999 11:59:59 PM.
