How do I cache dropdownlists? For example, I have a "state" table that doesnt change. I bind it to the ddl once. But next time i load the page, i dont want to go back to the database again...

I think i need to use cache["whatever"] but i dont need for example, to cache for a month something...

There are multiple mechanisms for saving out state for a page in ASP .NET.

Here is an article on how this is done.

I would say use ViewState["whatever"] = theObject;

viewstate? then if i close the page, open it again, it will go to the database again. State info is something that won't change that often...
