I want to pre populate some of the form fields from browser cookies on the mvc website. How can I do that? How to set and load cookies in an mvc app?

In the same way as in another ASP.NET application - via Cookies property on
Request and Response objects. These objects are accessible from controller via
HttpContext.Request and HttpContext.Response properties. So just use
HttpContext.Request.Cookies and HttpContext.Response.Cookies from your controller.

Yeah but how do i pre-populate the field? Example if a user clicks "Remember my username" on the login form, I want to store the name in a cookie and prefill it next time the user visits the form. I can create and retrive a cookie but not sure how to pre
fill the username field.

Just store username into HttpContext.Response.Cookies collection and when you are preparing data for showing login form then read
username from HttpContext.Request.Cookies.

Please refer to the following code to display the cookie .
And we can use the following code to add a cookie.
public ActionResult Index()
HttpCookie hc = new HttpCookie("test","123");

hi, just a quick query please
It appears cookies does not persist in localhost server, does it? (using built in server of VS)
I did set start up url as www.abc.com in my solution setting and my IE also has cookies setting enabled.
Please advise how can I have cookies work in localhost testing server?
