newby C# web app cookie question


I'm developing a web application that needs to have five values, each
retrieved from cookies on many pages.

If I have five "Request.Cookie s" commands together does this cause five
"round trips" to the browser or am I accessing one instance.

If five round trips occur then I will develop some parsing algorithm to
save everything I need in one cookie.

Thanks for your help and suggestons!

The cookies are transmitted in the "cookie header," so they are all
transmitted in each request.

Thanks for your reply!

Does this mean that I should have five Request.Cookies commands in a row


Request.Cookies["value1"].Value.ToString ();
Request.Cookies["value2"].Value.ToString ();
Request.Cookies["value3"].Value.ToString ();

and not suffer a penalty

Or is there a way to perform only one request and retrive all cookies at

Thanks again for your help with this "newby" question!

Hi, there is no penalty for accessing the Cookies object. It is already
populated when you are in the context of server-side code. Remember
that the "user agent" (a.k.a. Internet Explorer) makes the request, not
the server-side code. The server code runs in response to that request.

Hi, I am trying to refresh the cookie to make sure the timeout is reset by simply calling a blank page on my site. I am doing this because I have an external site hosted in my web that isn't sharing the auth mechanism. I can test this easily by simply having a hidden iframe and use a javascript call to refresh my sites blank page every time the external site loads a page and this does work fine, the cookie is refreshed as expected if...

I'm guessing this is a laughably obvious answer to many here, but it's not to me (and I don't have a server or any knowledge of PHP to be able to try it). It's not strictly a PHP question, but something that PHP guys would know the answer to. I can't think of a more appropriate forum to try. I've heard the ASP and JSP guys aren't as friendly ;-) Let's say we have a HTML page from domain example.com, and that HTML page makes a request to...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
