HttpWebRequest.SupportsCookieContainer Property

Gets a value that indicates whether the CookieContainer property is supported by the HttpWebRequest instance.

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

public virtual bool SupportsCookieContainer { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the CookieContainer property is supported by the HttpWebRequest instance; otherwise, false.

The CookieContainer property is supported by the client HTTP stack, not the browser HTTP stack. The NotImplementedException is thrown if an application does not use the client HTTP stack for the HTTP request and tries to get or set the CookieContainer property. The SupportsCookieContainer property can be used to determine if the CookieContainer property is supported without the need to handle an exception.

By default, the browser HTTP stack is used by the HttpWebRequest class. An application can use the client HTTP stack by calling the RegisterPrefix method with the creator parameter set to the value returned by the ClientHttp property.

If an application implements a custom WebRequest class and does not override the CookieContainer property, then the NotImplementedException is thrown.
