Examples

The following example displays the properties of cookies returned in a response. For the complete example, see the Cookie class topic.

HttpWebRequest^ request = dynamic_cast<HttpWebRequest^>(WebRequest::Create( args[ 1 ] ));
request->CookieContainer = gcnew CookieContainer;
HttpWebResponse^ response = dynamic_cast<HttpWebResponse^>(request->GetResponse());
response->Cookies = request->CookieContainer->GetCookies( request->RequestUri );

// Print the properties of each cookie.
System::Collections::IEnumerator^ myEnum = response->Cookies->GetEnumerator();
while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
{
   Cookie^ cook = safe_cast<Cookie^>(myEnum->Current);
   Console::WriteLine( "Cookie:" );
   Console::WriteLine( "{0} = {1}", cook->Name, cook->Value );
   Console::WriteLine( "Domain: {0}", cook->Domain );
   Console::WriteLine( "Path: {0}", cook->Path );
   Console::WriteLine( "Port: {0}", cook->Port );
   Console::WriteLine( "Secure: {0}", cook->Secure );
   Console::WriteLine( "When issued: {0}", cook->TimeStamp );
   Console::WriteLine( "Expires: {0} (expired? {1})", cook->Expires, cook->Expired );
   Console::WriteLine( "Don't save: {0}", cook->Discard );
   Console::WriteLine( "Comment: {0}", cook->Comment );
   Console::WriteLine( "Uri for comments: {0}", cook->CommentUri );
   Console::WriteLine( "Version: RFC {0}", cook->Version == 1 ? (String^)"2109" : "2965" );
   
   // Show the string representation of the cookie.
   Console::WriteLine( "String: {0}", cook );
   
}
HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(args[0]);
request.CookieContainer = new CookieContainer();

HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse) request.GetResponse();



// Print the properties of each cookie.
foreach (Cookie cook in response.Cookies)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Cookie:");
    Console.WriteLine("{0} = {1}", cook.Name, cook.Value);
    Console.WriteLine("Domain: {0}", cook.Domain);

        cook.Expires, cook.Expired);
    Console.WriteLine("Don't save: {0}", cook.Discard);    
    Console.WriteLine("Comment: {0}", cook.Comment);
    Console.WriteLine("Uri for comments: {0}", cook.CommentUri);
    Console.WriteLine("Version: RFC {0}" , cook.Version == 1 ? "2109" : "2965");

    // Show the string representation of the cookie.
    Console.WriteLine ("String: {0}", cook.ToString());
}
Dim request As HttpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.Create(args(0)), HttpWebRequest)
request.CookieContainer = New CookieContainer()

Dim response As HttpWebResponse = CType(request.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)



' Print the properties of each cookie.
Dim cook As Cookie
For Each cook In  response.Cookies
    Console.WriteLine("Cookie:")
    Console.WriteLine("{0} = {1}", cook.Name, cook.Value)
    Console.WriteLine("Domain: {0}", cook.Domain)
    Console.WriteLine("Path: {0}", cook.Path)
    Console.WriteLine("Port: {0}", cook.Port)
    Console.WriteLine("Secure: {0}", cook.Secure)
    
    Console.WriteLine("When issued: {0}", cook.TimeStamp)
    Console.WriteLine("Expires: {0} (expired? {1})", cook.Expires, cook.Expired)
    Console.WriteLine("Don't save: {0}", cook.Discard)
    Console.WriteLine("Comment: {0}", cook.Comment)
    Console.WriteLine("Uri for comments: {0}", cook.CommentUri)
    Console.WriteLine("Version: RFC {0}", IIf(cook.Version = 1, "2109", "2965"))
    
    ' Show the string representation of the cookie.
    Console.WriteLine("String: {0}", cook.ToString())
Next cook

Remarks

Setting the Expires property to DateTime makes this a session Cookie, which is its default value.

The DateTimeKind property of Expires is used to determine if the Cookie is set in DateTimeKind or DateTimeKind. If the DateTimeKind property is set to DateTimeKind, then DateTimeKind is assumed.
