Hello fellow Ranchers,

Can anybody point me to code/resources on how to loop through cookies to get hold of the value for a particular cookie.

Thanks

Hi Eric,

I followed your google search and found this resource



The above code seems flawed, since it won't search my cookie that I have created earlier. As a result, it is freshly creating another cookie with the same name.

Something strange is happening, the new cookie is getting created at a different path than the earlier one!

When I check details about document.cookie , after I have already created one with a name 'selection', I don't see selection anywhere in the cookie (because it is searching from a different path!)

Is it possible to loop through 2 paths, and get all the cookies. Here are the 2 paths

That code is not creating a different cookie. It is taking the cookie and splitting it up and storing it in an object.

How are you creating the cookie? When the cookie is created are you setting the domain?

Here is my setCookie code:



The above 'alert' won't print the cookie that I created earlier with the same name (as it was already created at a different path)
Is this because I am not considering the path ? The domain is same for the 2 cookies, only the path is different...

Thanks

When i create cookie, its getting saved at a certain location. I click a button and go to a different tab ( a different page). I still see the cookie.

When I click back to original screen, the browser is not able to retrieve the cookie that I created earlier. And my code will create a new cookie if one doesn't exist already. This new cookie is getting created at a different location. Now I see the same cookie name at 2 different paths.

How to fix this?

 
Be reasonable. You can't destroy everything. Where would you sit? How would you read a tiny ad?
