Direct answer: No, you cannot read a cookie on the same page that creates it.
The question is: why would you want to? After all, you already have the data available to you that you would read from the cookie because you had to use it to create the cookie on that page. -----Original Message----- From: andy [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] Sent: Tuesday, March 26, 2002 10:39 AM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: [PHP] cookie problem. Not possible to set and read a cookie on the same page? Hi there, I am wondering if it is possible to send a cookie and read it on the same page. Following environment: There is a cookie already on the machine of the client, but expired. Now I am setting a new cookie and reading it on the same page via $sess_id = $HTTP_COOKIE_VARS[$sesscookiename]; Unfortuanaelly it gives me the old session id back. After refreshing I am getting the new sessid and everything works fine. The cookie has been sent with the right value, I did dubble check it. But the HTTP_C... reads the old one. why?
