JSquared Demo – Cookies

DEMOS: COOKIE

Please ensure you read the JSquared documentation for full details on using each JSquared method and object described below

GET

Use the get method to return the value of the specified cookie name. If the cookie does not exist, you will get an empty string.

J2.Cookie.get("nameOfCookie");

SET

You can set the value of a cookie using this method. If the cookie does not already exist, then it will be created. You also tell the cookie when to expire by either passing in a number of days to live or a specific expiration date as a Date object. If you do not tell the cookie when to expire, it will become a session cookie. Each time you set the value of a cookie using this method, you need to pass in the correct expiration details.

Set a cookie to expire in 5 days

J2.Cookie.set("nameOfCookie", "value", 5);

Set a cookie to expire on 4 Jan 2010

J2.Cookie.set("nameOfCookie", "value", new Date("4 Jan 2010"));

REMOVE

This will remove the cookie named “nameOfCookie”.

J2.Cookie.remove("nameOfCookie");
