|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|

The class gets and sets properties of individual cookies. The HttpCookieCollection class provides methods to store, retrieve, and manage multiple cookies.
ASP.NET includes two intrinsic cookie collections. The collection accessed through the Cookies collection of the HttpRequest object contains cookies transmitted by the client to the server in the Cookie header. The collection accessed through the Cookies collection of the HttpResponse object contains new cookies created on the server and transmitted to the client in the Set-Cookie HTTP response header.
The following code example demonstrates how to check for a cookie named DateCookieExample in the HttpRequest object. If the cookie is not found, it is created and added to the HttpResponse object. The cookie is set to expire in 10 minutes.
