CookieParameter.CookieName Property

 

Gets or sets the name of the HTTP cookie that the parameter binds to.

Namespace:   System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public string CookieName { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

A string that identifies the client-side HTTP cookie that the parameter binds to.

The CookieName property identifies an HTTP cookie, which is represented by an HttpCookie object and is available through the current HttpRequest object. If the HTTP cookie is not available in the current HttpRequest object, the Evaluate method binds the parameter to the value of the DefaultValue property, if it is set. If the DefaultValue property is not set, the Evaluate method fails to bind the parameter to a value.

The following code example demonstrates how to declaratively use a SqlDataSource control and a CookieParameter object bound to an HTTP cookie to display data from the Northwind Traders database in a GridView control.

The following code example demonstrates how to programmatically create a CookieParameter object, set its properties, and add it to a SqlDataSource control's SelectParameters collection.

public partial class cookieparam2cs_aspx : System.Web.UI.Page 
{
    void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        // These cookies might be added by a login form.
        // They are added here for simplicity.
        if (!IsPostBack)
        {
            Response.Cookies.Add(new HttpCookie("lname", "davolio"));
            Response.Cookies.Add(new HttpCookie("loginname", "ndavolio"));
            Response.Cookies.Add(new HttpCookie("lastvisit", DateTime.Now.ToString()));


            // You can add a CookieParameter to the SqlDataSource control's
            // SelectParameters collection programmatically.
            CookieParameter cookieParam = new CookieParameter();
            cookieParam.Name = "lastname";
            cookieParam.Type = TypeCode.String;
            cookieParam.CookieName = "lname";

            SqlDataSource1.SelectParameters.Add(cookieParam);
        }

    }
}
