Property Value

Exceptions

Capacity is less than or equal to zero or (value is less than PerDomainCapacity and PerDomainCapacity is not equal to MaxValue).

Remarks

If Count equals or exceeds Capacity, one or more Cookie instances are removed from the container. Enough instances are removed to bring Count below Capacity as follows: if there are expired Cookie instances in scope, they are cleaned up. If not, then the least recently used CookieCollection is found and removed from the container.

Capacity must be greater than or equal to PerDomainCapacity.
