HttpCapabilitiesBase.SupportsRedirectWithCookie Property

Gets a value indicating whether the browser supports cookies on redirection.

Namespace:  System.Web.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public virtual bool SupportsRedirectWithCookie { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the browser supports cookies on redirection; otherwise, false. The default is true.

With UP.Browser 4.1 or UP.Browser 3.2, the Redirect method behaves as if the value of the SupportsRedirectWithCookie property of the HttpBrowserCapabilities object is false, unless the Cookieless property in the SessionState section of Web.config has been explicitly set to true.

In ASP.NET 1.1, the options for this setting were true or false, but with ASP.NET 2.0, the choices are expanded, and AutoDetect is now the default setting. If your Web application has the cookieless attribute of the <sessionState> section in the Web.config file set to a Boolean value, Redirect should work as expected for these browsers.

The following code example shows how to determine whether the browser supports cookies on redirection.

<%@ page language="C#"%>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<script runat="server">
    void Page_Load(Object Sender, EventArgs e)

    void CheckBrowserCaps()
        String labelText = "";
        System.Web.HttpBrowserCapabilities myBrowserCaps = Request.Browser;
        if (((System.Web.Configuration.HttpCapabilitiesBase)myBrowserCaps).SupportsRedirectWithCookie)
            labelText = "Browser supports cookies on redirection.";
            labelText = "Browser does not support cookies on redirection.";

        Label1.Text = labelText;

<html xmlns="" >
    <title>Browser Capabilities Sample</title>
    <form runat="server" id="form1">
            Browser Capabilities:
            <p/><asp:Label ID="Label1" Runat="server" />
