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 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
    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.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);
       Response.Write("not found");
