How to create and show multiple cookies in GridView in asp.net c# RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all, I am working on Online shopping website where end user can select multiple items at a time and i need to show them in Cart-item where he has selected his choice items. I want to do this by Cookies in that As user clicks on Add-To-Cart button it gets stored in cookies and in the Show-My-Cart-Item page it shows all the selected items in GridView format. 

    Kindly guide me how to do this coding. Suppose a scenario of ItemId,ItemName,Price.

    Anyhow I got following code:

        <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlCookies" runat="server"></asp:DropDownList>
            <br />
            <asp:Button ID="btnSave" runat="server" Text="Save Cookie" OnClick="btnSave_Click" />
            <div >
                <asp:Label ID="lblCookies" runat="server"></asp:Label>
            <div style="background-color:chocolate">
                <asp:GridView ID="grdCookies" runat="server"></asp:GridView>

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            //lblCookies.Text = "My cookie value is "+Request.Cookies["Background"].Value;
            if (!Page.IsPostBack)
        private void showMyCookies()
            string fname=Request.Cookies["Background"]["FirstName"];
            string lname = Request.Cookies["Background"]["LastName"];
            ArrayList colCookies = new ArrayList();
            for (int i = 0; i < Request.Cookies.Count; i++)
                grdCookies.DataSource = colCookies;
        protected void btnSave_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            HttpCookie myCookie = new HttpCookie("Background");
            myCookie.Value = ddlCookies.SelectedItem.Text;
            //Response.Cookies.Add(new HttpCookie("Cookie1","Value1"));
    But I am unable to get all the cookies values except DropDownList Value. And in gridView I get only last ddl value. Though I have used foreach loop But it does not work. Kindly guide me how get all the records in gridview.
    It will be appreciable if you guide me with other examples.
