The below code snippet shows how to Cache the complete page.

<%@ OutputCache Duration="20" Location="Server"  VaryByParam="none" %> 

To Cache the portion of the page.we have to add web user control page and the directive is placed at the top of user control page.(.ascx file).

<%@ OutputCache Duration="20" VaryByControl="LiveScore" VaryByParam="*"%>
