Property Value

An HttpCookieCollection object representing the client's cookie variables.

The following code example loops through all cookies sent by the client and sends the name, expiration date, security parameter, and values of each cookie to the HTTP output.

int loop1, loop2;
HttpCookieCollection MyCookieColl;
HttpCookie MyCookie;
 
MyCookieColl = Request.Cookies;

// Capture all cookie names into a string array.
String[] arr1 = MyCookieColl.AllKeys;

// Grab individual cookie objects by cookie name.
for (loop1 = 0; loop1 < arr1.Length; loop1++) 
{
   MyCookie = MyCookieColl[arr1[loop1]];
   Response.Write("Cookie: " + MyCookie.Name + "<br>");
   Response.Write("Expires: " + MyCookie.Expires + "<br>");
   Response.Write ("Secure:" + MyCookie.Secure + "<br>");
 
   //Grab all values for single cookie into an object array.
   String[] arr2 = MyCookie.Values.AllKeys;

   //Loop through cookie Value collection and print all values.
   for (loop2 = 0; loop2 < arr2.Length; loop2++) 
   {
      Response.Write("Value" + loop2 + ": " + Server.HtmlEncode(arr2[loop2]) + "<br>");
   }
}
   

int loop1, loop2;
HttpCookieCollection myCookieColl;
HttpCookie myCookie;

myCookieColl = get_Request().get_Cookies();

// Capture all cookie names into a string array.
String arr1[] = myCookieColl.get_AllKeys();

// Grab individual cookie objects by cookie name.
for (loop1 = 0; loop1 < arr1.length; loop1++) {
    myCookie = myCookieColl.get_Item(arr1[loop1]);
    get_Response().Write(("Cookie: " + myCookie.get_Name() + "<br>"));
    get_Response().Write(("Expires: " + myCookie.get_Expires()
        + "<br>"));
    get_Response().Write(("Secure:" + myCookie.get_Secure() + "<br>"));

    //Grab all values for single cookie into an object array.
    String arr2[] = myCookie.get_Values().get_AllKeys();

    //Loop through cookie Value collection and print all values.
    for (loop2 = 0; loop2 < arr2.length; loop2++) {
        get_Response().Write(("Value" + loop2 + ": "
            + get_Server().HtmlEncode(arr2[loop2]) + "<br>"));
    }
}

var arr1, arr2 : String[]
var myCookieColl : HttpCookieCollection 
var myCookie : HttpCookie

myCookieColl = Request.Cookies
// Capture all cookie names into a string array.
arr1 = myCookieColl.AllKeys
// Grab individual cookie objects by cookie name     
for(var i=0; i < arr1.Length; i++){
   myCookie = myCookieColl(arr1[i])
   Response.Write("Cookie: " + myCookie.Name + "<br>")
   Response.Write("Expires: " + myCookie.Expires + "<br>")
   Response.Write ("Secure:" + myCookie.Secure + "<br>")

   // Grab all values for single cookie into an object array.
   arr2 = myCookie.Values.AllKeys
   // Loop through cookie Value collection and print all values.
   for(var j=0; j < arr2.Length; j++){
      Response.Write("Value " + j + ": " + Server.HtmlEncode(arr2[j]) + "<br>")
   }
}
