.NET Framework Adding Item to Cache (Set)


Example

Set function inserts a cache entry into the cache by using a CacheItem instance to supply the key and value for the cache entry.

This function Overrides ObjectCache.Set(CacheItem, CacheItemPolicy)

private static bool SetToCache()
{
    string key = "Cache_Key";
    string value = "Cache_Value";

    //Get a reference to the default MemoryCache instance.
    var cacheContainer = MemoryCache.Default; 

    var policy = new CacheItemPolicy()
    {
        AbsoluteExpiration = DateTimeOffset.Now.AddMinutes(DEFAULT_CACHE_EXPIRATION_MINUTES)
     };
     var itemToCache = new CacheItem(key, value); //Value is of type object.
     cacheContainer.Set(itemToCache, policy);                
}
