Cookie::Expires Property

Gets or sets the expiration date and time for the Cookie as a DateTime.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public:
property DateTime Expires {
	DateTime get ();
	void set (DateTime value);
}

Property Value

Type: System::DateTime
The expiration date and time for the Cookie as a DateTime instance.

Setting the Expires property to MinValue 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 Local or Utc. If the DateTimeKind property is set to Unspecified, then Utc is assumed.

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 );
