Cookie Expiration

Hi everyone.
I'm setting a cookie with the following code:

then using a loop within the body of the page to retrieve the cookie name(s) and value(s), and yet when I request the MaxAge of the cookie(s) on the page with cookies[i].getMaxAge() it comes back as -1, even though it was originally set to 31536000.

Am I being dense, or am I missing something here?
Can anyone help me?
Thanks in advance

If you are doing all this in one request, seems to me that since you are setting the cookie in the response, it won't appear until the next request.
I agree. Here's the link:
