View the Latest Version of a Document

The IDOL View component stores converted documents in the cache. It stores them for a length of time determined by one of the following configuration parameters:

If a user requests a document that exists in the cache, View retrieves it from the cache to improve performance.

You can set the IgnoreCache parameter in a View action to convert the document again, rather than retrieving the cached version. For documents that change frequently, this parameter ensures that View returns the most recent form of the document. For example:


You can delete all the files from the View cache directory by using the Reset View Cache feature in the Controls section of the Overview tab in the Status page of the IDOL Admin interface. For more information, refer to the IDOL Admin User Guide.
