How to add something to the soap header in VB.NET

I'm developing a web service client application in VB.Net. I have added a web reference and able to invoke the service & get the back the response. But now I need to add following line to the http header in the request:
Cookie: xyz=somevalue

By default header part contains:
SOAPAction: ""
User-Agent: SOAPscope
Content-Type: text/xml; charset=UTF-8

I need to append "Cookie: xyz=somevalue" to above.

I tried adding element to cookieContainer but seems its not working. Is there a way to just append a line of text to the http header in the request?
Please help.
Thanks in advance.

U can do this by adding a SoapExtension to your webservice. By having a SoapExtension u can do some processing before calling the webservice

Then we can add SoapHeader Like this
[SoapExtensions]
[SoapHeaderAttribute("XYZ", Direction=SoapHeaderDirection.InOut)]


For this u need a property called XYZ in the Class derived from SoapHeader. There the value of XYZ is get-set
