How do i expire a cookie based on the life spam of a browser? e.g. browser close = cookie expires.

I.e. i'm currently using
Dim fat As New FormsAuthenticationTicket(1, CustomerGUID, DateTime.Now, DateTime.Now.AddYears(1), false, "")

But the cookie still exists when the browser closes despite ispersits = false

Any ideas?

NB: I can't use the global.asax or custom Javascript

You should use sessions instead, since sessions will be abandon when the session is closed, but with cookies i dont think that you can capture the event when the explorer is closed, or the PC is turned off .. etc. So many possibilities.

Sorry this was a case of me over complicating a simple concept - problem solved i.e. i was creating my own cookie and not utilising GetAuthCookie.

Thanks
