I don't think I even have a good secnario of when you would want to use Request.Cookies.Add outside of the example above (which really isnt a good secnario).

In any event, I come up short with resources on this as well as I couldn't even find a decent document on the MSDN =

Yeah, I'd have expected to have stumbled across something useful myself in my two days of frantic searching on the subject. Perhaps MS will get the hint and beef up their documentation?

Thanks!

I am sure they are not reading every post made on every forum, so if you really want something done, you should tell them, I think.

Usually, I find Microsoft to be very responsive to these kind of questions, so you should consider giving it a try and request more documentation about this subject. Maybe talk to "mister ASP.NET" Scott Guthrie about it?

I typically let them know how helpful (or as is usually the case, how unhelpful) their site is when I accidentally Google upon it. I get far more useful information here, btw!

Ron,

If I may add one more tidbit to this conversation: The difference between cookies in the request and response, and indeed the difference between request and response themselves is not an MS invention. It comes from the general specification of the HTTP protocol.

Take a look here for a nauseatingly detailed look at how cookies work in the HTTP protocol.

http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2109/rfc2109

This might shed some light on your query.

-Peter

It's certainly more detailed than anything I've read to date.

Thanks, Peter!
