HttpWebResponse.Cookies Property

Gets or sets the cookies associated with this response.

[Visual Basic]
Public Property Cookies As CookieCollection
[C#]
public CookieCollection Cookies {get; set;}
[C++]
public: __property CookieCollection* get_Cookies();
public: __property void set_Cookies(CookieCollection*);
[JScript]
public function get Cookies() : CookieCollection;
public function set Cookies(CookieCollection);

Property Value

A CookieCollection containing the cookies associated with this response.

Exceptions

Exception Type Condition
ObjectDisposedException The current instance has been disposed.

Remarks

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

If the CookieContainer property of the associated HttpWebRequest is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the Cookies property will also be a null reference (Nothing). Any cookie information sent by the server will be available in the Headers property, however.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following example sends a request to a URL and displays the cookies returned in the response.

[Visual Basic] 
Imports System.Net
Imports System

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