_setDoc

(
  • newDoc

private

Sets the document object that the cookie utility uses for setting cookies. This method is necessary to ensure that the cookie utility unit tests can pass even when run on a domain instead of locally. This method should not be used otherwise; you should use Y.config.doc to change the document that the cookie utility uses for everyday purposes.

Parameters:

  • newDoc Object

    The object to use as the document.

exists

(
  • name
)
Boolean static

Determines if the cookie with the given name exists. This is useful for Boolean cookies (those that do not follow the name=value convention).

The converter function is run on the value before returning it. The function is not used if the cookie doesn't exist. The function can be passed instead of the options object for backwards compatibility. When raw is set to true, the cookie value is not URI decoded.
