Public Property Cookies As CookieCollection
'Usage
Dim instance As HttpWebResponse
Dim value As CookieCollection

value = instance.Cookies

instance.Cookies = value
/** @property */
public CookieCollection get_Cookies ()

/** @property */
public void set_Cookies (CookieCollection value)

public function get Cookies () : CookieCollection

public function set Cookies (value : CookieCollection)

Not applicable.

Property Value

A CookieCollection that contains the cookies that are associated with this response.

Exception typeCondition

ObjectDisposedException

The current instance has been disposed.

The Cookies property provides an instance of the CookieCollection class that holds the cookies associated with this response.

If the CookieContainer property of the associated HttpWebRequest is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the Cookies property will also be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic). Any cookie information sent by the server will be available in the Headers property, however.

The following example sends a request to a URL and displays the cookies returned in the response.

Imports System.Net
Imports System

' This example is run at the command line.
' Specify one argument: the name of the host to 
' receive the request.
' If the request is sucessful, the example displays the contents of the cookies
' returned by the host.
