CookieHandler.WriteCore Method

[Starting with the .NET Framework 4.5, Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) has been fully integrated into the .NET Framework. The version of WIF addressed by this topic, WIF 3.5, is deprecated and should only be used when developing against the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 or the .NET Framework 4. For more information about WIF in the .NET Framework 4.5, also known as WIF 4.5, see the Windows Identity Foundation documentation in the .NET Framework 4.5 Development Guide.]

When overridden in a derived class, writes a cookie.

  • value
    Value for the cookie
  • name
    Name for the cookie
  • path
    Path for the cookie
  • domain
    Domain for the cookie
  • expirationTime
    Expiration time for the cookie, or MinValue for a session cookie
  • secure
    a value that specifies if it is required to transmit the cookie over an SSL connection (HTTPS); otherwise, false.
  • httpOnly
    a value that specifies whether a cookie is accessible by client-side.


Called from the Write method to do the actual work of writing the cookie. The Write method will ensure that value is a non-empty byte array and that name and path are non-empty strings.
