Cookies & CFHEADER

Friday, July 11 2003

I always forget how to create cookies in ColdFusion using the CFHEADER tag, so here’s a reminder:

<cfheader name=“Set-Cookie” value="mycookie=pong;expires=ddd, dd-mmm-yyyy HH:mm:ss GMT


For a domain cookie:

<cfheader name=”Set-Cookie" value=“mycookie=pong;expires=ddd, dd-mmm-yyyy HH:mm:ss GMT; path=/;;”>

Using CFHEADER gives you more control over setting cookies than something like CFCOOKIE or using CFSET would.
