Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the client is to discard the Cookie at the end of the current session; otherwise, false. The default is false.

HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(args[0]);
request.CookieContainer = new CookieContainer();

HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse) request.GetResponse();



// Print the properties of each cookie. 
foreach (Cookie cook in response.Cookies)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Cookie:");
    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}" , cook.Version == 1 ? "2109" : "2965");

    // Show the string representation of the cookie.
    Console.WriteLine ("String: {0}", cook.ToString());
