I have below codes and I don't know why the error is still occurred (see attached).
all I want to do is use the WCF addCookie to add cookie into the client browser.


wcf:
 public string AddCookie(string cookieName, string cookieValue, int cookieLiveInHour)
        {
            HttpCookie myCookie = new HttpCookie(cookieName);
            myCookie.Value = cookieValue;
            myCookie.Expires = DateTime.Now.AddHours(cookieLiveInHour);
            HttpContext.Current.Response.Cookies.Add(myCookie);
            return "Added";
             
        }

aspx
string addCookieEmail = ServiceGeneric.AddCookie("someName", Request.Params["email"],12);

error:
See attached

Hello,

The cookie may exist, but to get them you need to have a page, a request from the client and the connection with their browser so to been able to read the cookies, that lives on the browser.

If you make this call from inside a thread, or a process, or on the end of the Page, or anywhere outside the Page, then the HttpContext.Current is null, and/or the HttpContext.Current.Request is null.

Yes, WCF is not needed for this. HttpContext.Current.Response only exists in the context of an aspx page.
You can create a cookie in the server when your page initially loads or post back in the Page_Load event. For example the link below creates in the ColorSelector_IndexChanged event:
http://asp.net-tutorials.com/state/cookies/

Alternative: You can use Javascript or jquery to create the cookie in the page as per examples below:
//Create expiring cookie, 7 days from then:
$.cookie('the_cookie', 'the_value', { expires: 7 });

Open in new window
