The HttpCookie class gets and sets properties of individual cookies. The HttpCookieCollection class provides methods to store, retrieve, and manage multiple cookies.
ASP.NET includes two intrinsic cookie collections. The collection accessed through the Cookies collection of the HttpRequest object contains cookies transmitted by the client to the server in the Cookie header. The collection accessed through the Cookies collection of the HttpResponse object contains new cookies created on the server and transmitted to the client in the Set-Cookie HTTP response header.
The following code example demonstrates how to check for a cookie named DateCookieExample in the HttpRequest object. If the cookie is not found, it is created and added to the HttpResponse object. The cookie is set to expire in 10 minutes.
