How to get cookies from Browser

Post by jarrettmk » Mon Jan 07, 2019 8:32 pm

Our web application sets a cookie that I need to retrieve and decrypt in order to get some information needed to validate later in my test.

I have looked at Host.Current as well as the following to try and get the cookies with no luck...
var cookies = Repository.OURSITE.Self.ExecuteScript("document.cookie");
var cookies = Repository.OURSITE.Self.ExecuteScript("document.cookie.split(';');");
both return "undefined".

I know with straight Selenium you can use something like:
var cookies = remoteWebDriver.Manage().Cookies;
var cookies = driver.Manage().Cookies;
However, I cannot find anything like this that is equivalent in Ranorex.

Does anyone know how to get the browser's cookies?
