Property Value

Type: SystemBoolean
false if the application is configured to support cookieless forms authentication; otherwise, true.
Remarks

The CookiesSupported property returns a value based on the CookieMode value and the capabilities of the browser.

  • If the CookieMode property is set to UseCookies, the CookiesSupported property will return true.

  • If the CookieMode property is set to UseUri, the CookiesSupported property will return false.

  • If the CookieMode property is set to AutoDetect, the CookiesSupported property will return true if the browser supports cookies and cookies are enabled; otherwise, the CookiesSupported property will return false.

  • If the CookieMode property is set to UseDeviceProfile, the CookiesSupported property will return true if the Browser for the current Request supports both cookies and redirecting with cookies; otherwise, the CookiesSupported property will return false.

Examples

The following code example sets the cookieless attribute to UseUri in the Web.config file. This configuration will result in the CookiesSupported property returning false.

<authentication mode="Forms">
  <forms loginUrl="member_login.aspx"
    cookieless="UseUri" />
</authentication>
