C# Question

C# create cookie from string and send it

I want to make a POST request to HTTP server, but I need to "include" a cookie in the request, I have the cookie but I dont know how to mess with cookie container

HttpWebRequest request = WebRequest.Create(url) as HttpWebRequest;
request.Method = "POST";
request.Accept = "text/javascript, text/html, application/xml, text/xml, */*";
request.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8";
request.Host = "url.com";
request.UserAgent = "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/536.11 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/20.0.1132.47 Safari/536.11";
request.Referer = "http://url.com";
request.Headers.Add("X-Requested-With", "XMLHttpRequest");
request.Headers.Add("X-Prototype-Version", "1.7");
request.Headers.Add("Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate");


and this is a sample cookie:

But I dont know how to convert that cookie into a Cookie container and then add it to the request.
request.CookieContainer = cookie;

Answer
//build uri and cookie
Uri uri = new Uri("domain");
Cookie cookie = new Cookie("name", "value");

//build request
HttpWebRequest request = WebRequest.Create("domain") as HttpWebRequest;
request.CookieContainer = new CookieContainer();
request.CookieContainer.Add(uri, cookie);
