Property Value

The version of HTTP state maintenance to which the cookie conforms.

The default cookie version is Netscape. If the value is explicitly set to 1, then this Cookie must conform to RFC 2109. Note that if a Cookie was created automatically by receiving a Set-Cookie2 HTTP response header, the conformance is set to RFC 2965.

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.
    Console.WriteLine("String: {0}", cook.ToString())
