about IE's session cookie

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to erase a session cookie like this?

$Obj = _IEDocGetObj($oIE)


My purpose is to assign a new value to this doc.

But it does not work. It seems this property of ".cookie" is read only.

Is that right?

the cookie property is read/write, but it doesn't work the way you are thinking it does.

When you read the cookie property, it returns the full set of name/value pairs for all cookies (and the cookie properties).

When you write to the cookie property, it adds a new name/value pair to the cookie property.

To delete a cookie, you must rewrite the name/value conbination to the cookie property with an expiration in the past.

For example:

$Obj.cookie = $cookie_name &= "=; expires=Thu, 01-Jan-1970 00:00:01 GMT"

It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
