Cookie problem Shopping cart RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey,

    I'm creating a shoppingcart.
    When a product is added to the shopping cart I create a GUID for the shoppingcart which is placed into a cookie.
    First a go to the AddToCart.aspx page then I do a redirect to the ShoppingCart.aspx, when I do the redirect a new cookie is created.
    In the shoppingcart I search for the current cookie, based on that I go to my db to get the products connected to that cookie.
    This is a normal way of doing things.

    But the problem is by the redirect form AddToCart & ShoppingCart the current cookie is replaced with on other one.

    With this method I search for the cookie



    static string GetCartGUID()



    if (HttpContext.Current.Request.Cookies["SBSCommerce"] != null && HttpContext.Current.Request.Cookies["SBSCommerce"]["CartID"] != null)




    return HttpContext.Current.Request.Cookies["SBSCommerce"]["CartID"].ToString();






    Guid CartGUID = Guid.NewGuid();


    HttpCookie cookie = new HttpCookie("SBSCommerce");


    "CartID", CartGUID.ToString());

    cookie.Expires =





    return CartGUID.ToString();



    Can somebody please help me ?
    Could it be a problem in the webconfig ?
