Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following example displays the properties of cookies returned in a response. For the complete example, see the Cookie class topic.

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

Dim response As HttpWebResponse = CType(request.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
response.Cookies = request.CookieContainer.GetCookies(request.RequestUri)


' Print the properties of each cookie.
Dim cook As Cookie
For Each 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}", IIf(cook.Version = 1, "2109", "2965"))
    
    ' Show the string representation of the cookie.
    Console.WriteLine("String: {0}", cook.ToString())
Next cook

[C#] 
HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(args[0]);
request.CookieContainer = new CookieContainer();
        
HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse) request.GetResponse();
response.Cookies = request.CookieContainer.GetCookies(request.RequestUri);


// 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());
}
