Programming in C#: Why is Request.Cookies null? on newest questions tagged c# – Stack Overflow
This is a follow-up on another thread I have running which is Reading cookie in c# . However, the answers in that post seem to beat around the bush so I want to simplify my question here. I think that answering this, I’ll be able to solve that problem. Stuck almost two days now trying to read a cookie so any help is appreciated.
What could cause a NullReferenceException at this line:
HttpCookie aCookie = Request.Cookies["UserSettings"];
I am sure a cookie called “UserSettings” is there, as I can see it with developer toolbar.
So Request or Request.Cookies must be null, right?
Why can’t I use Request.Cookies? Every single cookie tutorial I look at does it like that.
EDIT: added cookie creation code in index.aspx, btw im trying to read the cookie in HomeController.cs, dont know if this matters, but thought id mention it.
