Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

Public Shared ReadOnly Property CookieTimeout As Integer
Dim value As Integer

/** @property */
public static int get_CookieTimeout ()

public static function get CookieTimeout () : int

Not applicable.

Property Value

An integer specifying the number of minutes before the roles cookie expires. The default is 30 minutes.

The CookieTimeout property is used when the CookieSlidingExpiration property is true and specifies the time-to-live in minutes for the roles cookie. To set the CookieTimeout value, add the cookieTimeout attribute to the roleManager element in the Web.config file for the ASP.NET application and specify an integer value.

If CookieSlidingExpiration is false, this property is ignored.

The following example shows the roleManager element in the system.web section of the Web.config file for an ASP.NET application. It specifies that the application uses a SqlRoleProvider instance and sets the CookieTimeout property to 30 minutes.

<roleManager defaultProvider="SqlProvider" 
  cookieProtection="Encrypted" >
    applicationName="MyApplication" />
