Hi all,

I want to get a cookies value from one .aspx.vb page to another .aspx.vb page.but i can not get it.
i give the code bellow:
This is in:(webForm2.aspx.vb):in this page I set the Cookies value

Protected Sub ImageButton1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs) Handles ImageButton1.Click
            Dim str2 As String
            str2 = "myValue"
            Response.Cookies("userInfo")("userName") = str2
            Dim str5 As String = Server.HtmlEncode(Request.Cookies("userInfo")("userName"))
        End Sub

I can not retrieve cookies value from another page :webpage1.aspx.vb:

If Not Request.Cookies("userInfo") Is Nothing Then
            Dim aCookie As HttpCookie = Request.Cookies("userInfo")
            Dim str As String = Server.HtmlEncode(Request.Cookies("userInfo")("userName"))
        End If

::: Here if condition is execute but the cookies value is "".
So, how can get cookies value ?

Thank you in advance.

Why do you need to store username in cookie? ASP.NET gives you Page.Identity.User.Name in every page automatically for you.

Identity.User.Name is only of value on a site with windows authentication enabled.

Have you tried using Session variables? They will be "Alive" for the length of the session.
