    [font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Using Indy idHTTP to post binary and text[/font]

    [font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Answer:[/font]

    [font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]This is a small example of using post to send data to web server. There is two different ways to do this operation.[/font]

    [font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Solve 1:[/font]


    Code:
    procedure TForm1.SendPostData;
    const
    CRLF = #13#10;
    var
    aStream: TMemoryStream;
    Params: TMemoryStream;
    S: string;
    begin
    aStream := TMemoryStream.create;
    Params := TMemoryStream.Create;
    
    HTTP.Request.ContentType := 'multipart/form-data;
    boundary = - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -7
    cf87224d2020a';
    
    try
    S := '-----------------------------7cf87224d2020a' + CRLF +
    'Content-Disposition: form-data; name="file1"; filename="c:abc.txt"' +
    CRLF +
    'Content-Type: text/plain' + CRLF + CRLF +
    'file one content. Contant-Type can be application/octet-stream or if
    you want you can ask your OS fot the exact type
    .' + CRLF +
    '-----------------------------7cf87224d2020a' + CRLF +
    'Content-Disposition: form-data; name="sys_return_url2"' + CRLF + CRLF +
    'hello2' + CRLF +
    '-----------------------------7cf87224d2020a--';
    
    Params.Write(S[1], Length(S));
    
    with HTTP do
    begin
    try
    HTTP.Post('http://www.mydomain.com/postexampe.cgi', Params,
    aStream);
    except
    on E: Exception do
    showmessage('Error encountered during POST: ' + E.Message);
    end;
    end;
    aStream.WriteBuffer(#0' ', 1);
    showmessage(PChar(aStream.Memory));
    except
    end;
    end;
    
    
    Solve 2:
    
    procedure TForm1.SendPostData;
    var
    aStream: TMemoryStream;
    Params: TStringStream;
    begin
    aStream := TMemoryStream.create;
    Params := TStringStream.create('');
    HTTP.Request.ContentType := 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded';
    
    try
    Params.WriteString(URLEncode('sys_return_url=' + 'helo1' + '&'));
    Params.WriteString(URLEncode('sys_return_url=' + 'helo2'));
    with HTTP do
    begin
    try
    HTTP.Post('http://www.mydomain.com/postexampe.cgi', Params,
    aStream);
    except
    on E: Exception do
    showmessage('Error encountered during POST: ' + E.Message);
    end;
    end;
    aStream.WriteBuffer(#0' ', 1);
    showmessage(PChar(aStream.Memory));
    except
    end;
    end;



    [font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]As you can see there is a difference in the way post stream is constructed and the ContentType. In the first example ContentType is "multipart/form-data; boundary=-----------------------------7cf87224d2020a" and this boundary is used to separate different parameters.[/font]

    [font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]In the second example the ContentType is "application/x-www-form-urlencoded". In this case the paremeteras are passed in the form[/font]

    [font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]ParamName=ParamValue&ParamName=ParamValue[/font]

    [font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Note that the Pramaeters in the second form must be URL encoded.[/font]

    [font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Where these two formats of post information are used?[/font]

    [font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]The first one is used when you have binary data to post and the second one is when you are going to post only text fields.[/font]
