Edit a cookie

  • 18 years ago

    Can someone explain me how I can edit cookie information ?

    I doubt you can do this. The cookie file format doesn't come up on the file type list (at least i can't find it) and I would like to see the code to edit a cookie in the temporary internet files folder. Notepad will not load a cookie at all (won't even try).

    Try searching on planet source code or someplace for a cookie editor. But it highly doubt that you'll find anything.

    Try using one of the HTML active X controls.

    hit Cntl+T
    Scroll down to Microsoft HTML Object Library
    Select that.
    Press ok.

    here is the code to get the cookies


    Dim Doc as HTMLDocument, Cookies as String
    Cookies = Doc.Cookie

    I think you can do an assignment with Doc.Cookie aswell.  Let me know if it works, I'd like to know.
