Property Value

true if the client is only to return the cookie in subsequent requests if those requests use Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTPS); otherwise, false. The default is false.

In effect, when this property is true this cookie may be sent only with https:// requests.

The following example displays the properties of cookies returned in a response. For the complete example, see the Cookie class topic.

Dim request As HttpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.Create(args(0)), HttpWebRequest)
request.CookieContainer = New CookieContainer()

Dim response As HttpWebResponse = CType(request.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)

' Print the properties of each cookie.
Dim cook As Cookie
For Each cook In  response.Cookies
    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}", IIf(cook.Version = 1, "2109", "2965"))
    ' Show the string representation of the cookie.
