I want to store the username in the cookie and retrieve it the next time when the user opens the website. Is it possible to create a cookie which doesnt expires when the browser is closed. I am using asp.net c# to create the website. And how can I stop the browser from offering to save username and password

    Hi Takeshi, 


    try this:

    HttpCookie myCookie = new HttpCookie("MyTestCookie");

    DateTime now = DateTime.Now;

    // Set the cookie value.

    myCookie.Value = now.ToString();

    // Set the cookie expiration date.

    myCookie.Expires = now.AddYears(50); // For a cookie to effectively never expire

    // Add the cookie.

    Response.Cookies.Add(myCookie);

    Response.Write("<p> The cookie has been written.");

    Reading a cookie

    HttpCookie myCookie = new HttpCookie("MyTestCookie");

    myCookie = Request.Cookies["MyTestCookie"];

    // Read the cookie information and display it.

    if (myCookie != null)

       Response.Write("<p>"+ myCookie.Name + "<p>"+ myCookie.Value);

    else

       Response.Write("not found");
