Browser Caching Problem

I am currently experiencing a problem whereby browser caching seems to be
causing my page to be invalid.

I am using a standard DataGrid WebControl which is bound to a DataView
object. I use a link in the DataGrid control to go to a details page for the
record to edit a number of different fields for the record. After updating
the dataset and database, I use a response.redire ct (I’ve also tried
Server.Transfer ) to return to the first page with the DataGrid. The problem
is that the DataGrid does not reflect the changes I’ve made to the database.
If I step the page load procedure in debug mode, the DataGrid does update and
I see the new data. If I don’t, I don’t see the new data until I hit the
refresh button or click on the link to go to the page directly.

I’ve tried to use the HTML metatags ‘<meta http-equiv="Pragma"
content="no-cache">’ and ‘<meta http-equiv="expires" content="0">’ but they
don’t seem to work. I have the same problem if I’m using IE or Firefox.
I’ve also tried to use ‘OutPutCache Location=”non e”’ (which as I don’t think
is related) with no success.

Any help, ideas, comments, suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Jonathan,

Right now, I can think of one old school way of dealing with browser
(and even proxy) caching, which is to append the url with a random
query string to make it look unique to the browser, eg.

Response.Redire ct("grid.aspx?K 12dU33jb1kjj22" )

An Update since yesterday...

I've set some values in the PageLoad procedure and found that even though
the datgrid does not refresh, the values in the page load procedure do. So,
for example, I create an HTML comment with the current date/time the FormLoad
procedure ran and that is updated every time as expected. But the datagrid
is seems to be the only part being cached.

I did try that and it still has the same problem. The datagrid information
does not appear to change even though the rest of the page is updating.

I have an ASP.NET page that spawns a popup window using javascript's window.open. This works fine. It pops up, you enter some data, press save and everything saves as it should. But, if you click the button to open the popup again, then it opens with the values that were in it before the "save" was executed. I've determined that the problem is that IE is storing the page in it's local temporary internet files cache and isn't going to...

I am working on a ASP.NET 2.0 web site that has some PDFs that users can download. I'm using an HTTP module to see if the user has permission to view the PDF before loading it. This all works great. The problem is that once the PDF has been allowed through to the browser, it won't be denied to the next user. So, if one user is allowed to see it and then a user who is not allowed to see it uses the same browser, it comes through for...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
