HttpCookieCollection MyCookieCollection = Request.Cookies;
 HttpCookie MyCookie = MyCookieCollection.Get("LastVisit");
 MyCookie.Value = DateTime.Now.ToString();

HttpCookieCollection myCookieCollection = get_Request().get_Cookies();
HttpCookie myCookie = myCookieCollection.Get("LastVisit");


var myCookieCollection : HttpCookieCollection = Request.Cookies
var myCookie : HttpCookie = myCookieCollection.Get("LastVisit")
myCookie.Value = DateTime.Now.ToString()
