Submit File and get the result

Hello,

i need to validate a css file automatically using indy components, i need to upload it first and then get the results, i can do it manually from this link:

http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator-upload

but i want to do it automatically using indy. And as i hardly know what POST and GET means, i would appreciate some help.

Thanks
Yehia

The site requires you to send the file and the selected options as a multipart/formdata POST request.

Create a multipart formdata stream :-

formData := TIdMultiPartFormDataStream.Create;

add your file :-

formData.AddFile('File',fileName,'application/octet-stream');

add your options :-

formData.Add('warning','O');
formData.Add('profile','css3');
formData.Add('usermedium','all');

Create the Indy HttpObject and post the data :-

response := HttpObject.Post('http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator',                                
                                                                  formData);

Hope that's a start.
