Examples

The following example sends a request to a URL and displays the cookies returned in the response.

#using <System.dll>

using namespace System;

// This example is run at the command line.
// Specify one argument: the name of the host to 
// send the request to.
// If the request is sucessful, the example displays the contents of the cookies
// returned by the host.

{

   if ( args == nullptr || args->Length != 2 )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Specify the URL to receive the request." );
      Environment::Exit( 1 );
   }

   
   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:" );

Remarks

The Cookies property provides an instance of the CookieCollection class that holds the cookies associated with this response.

If the CookieContainer property of the associated HttpWebRequest is null, the Cookies property will also be null. Any cookie information sent by the server will be available in the Headers property, however.
