How do you use Cache in a class file

I am having a problem using Cache in my class file. It is an ASP.Net application using VB.NET.

Below is the header in the file:

Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic


Below is the code I am using in an attempt to insert an item into the Cache.

Cache.Insert("FieldName", "Value")

The above generates an error whose description says the below:

"Reference to a non-shared member requires an object reference"

Hi,

In what class are you trying to use Cache?  Are you in a Page or in a simple class?

Using System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Cache might solve your problem.

It is in a seperate file from the .aspx file.

It is in a file with the extension .vb

Ok..

Can you verify if you have the import at the top of your .vb file?  The import should be :

import System.Web.Caching

Below is what I have at the top of the .vb class file.

Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic
Imports System.Web.Caching


When I key Cache, there are only for options. They are:
Equals
NoAbsoluteExpiration
NoSlidingExpiration
ReferenceEquals

There is Insert option.

Hi,

I think you want to use Cache in a class file,  I thought it was in the code behind of your .aspx file.

To use Cache in a class function, use :

System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Cache
