Parameters

cacheId
Type: System..::..String
The identifier for the Cache item to initialize.
mode
Type: Alachisoft.NCache.Web.Caching..::..CacheMode
Cache startup mode.

Return Value

Type: Cache

Remarks

The cacheId parameter represents the registration/config id of the cache. The startup type of the cache is controlled by the mode parameter.

Calling this method twice with the same cacheId increments the reference count of the cache. The number of InitializeCache(String) calls must be balanced by a corresponding same number of Dispose()()()() calls.

Multiple cache instances can be inititalized within the same application domain. If multiple cache instances are initialized, Cache refers to the first instance of the cache.

Note: If the value of is OutProc, this method attempts to start NCache service on the local machine if it is not already running. However it does not start the cache automatically.

Examples

This sample shows how to use the InitializeCache(String) method inside a sample Web application.
 Copy imageCopy
public override void Init()
{
    // A cache with id 'myCache' is already registered.
    try
    {
        Alachisoft.NCache.Web.Caching.Cache theCache = NCache.InitializeCache("myCache", CacheMode.InProc);
    }
    catch(Exception e)
    {
        // Cache is not available.
    }
}

Exceptions

ExceptionCondition
System..::..ArgumentNullExceptioncacheId is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
