CookieContainer.PerDomainCapacity Property

Gets and sets the number of Cookie instances that a CookieContainer can hold per domain.

Namespace: System.Net
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

property int PerDomainCapacity {
	int get ();
	void set (int value);
/** @property */
public int get_PerDomainCapacity ()

/** @property */
public void set_PerDomainCapacity (int value)

public function get PerDomainCapacity () : int

public function set PerDomainCapacity (value : int)

Not applicable.

Property Value

The number of Cookie instances that are allowed per domain.

Exception typeCondition


PerDomainCapacity is less than or equal to zero.


(PerDomainCapacity is greater than the maximum allowable number of cookies instances, 300, and is not equal to MaxValue).

If the new PerDomainCapacity value is less than the current value, and if any of the domain collections contain more Cookie instances than the new value, the collections are pruned to fit. This uses the same basic rules as described in the Capacity property. However, this does the clean-up only on the collection for this domain.
