Upload with Indy

I need the code to upload with Indy. If possible I want to upload a TStringList without saving it in a temp file ?

Thanks

upload to where? TCP Client to TCP Server?
or to a Web server?

- tcp client side indy 9 -

TCPClient1.WriteInteger(mystringlist.count); // send the # of lines to teh server
for i := 0 to pred(mystringlist.count) do // loop through each line and send them 1 at a time
begin
    TCPClient1.WriteLn(mystringlist[i]); // send 1 line
end;

- tcp server side indy 9 -

var
    i: integer;
    newstringlist: tstringlist;
begin
    newstringlist := tstringlist.create;
    try
        numlines := AThread.Connection.ReadInteger;
        for i := 1 to numlines do
            newstringlist.Add(AThread.Connection.ReadLn);

// do something with the stringlist now

    finally
        newstringlist.free;
    end;



- tcp client side indy 10.0.52 -

TCPClient1.IOHandler.WriteInteger(mystringlist.count); // send the # of lines to teh server
for i := 0 to pred(mystringlist.count) do // loop through each line and send them 1 at a time
begin
    TCPClient1.IOHandler.WriteLn(mystringlist[i]); // send 1 line
end;

- tcp server side indy 10.0.52 -

var
    i: integer;
    newstringlist: tstringlist;
begin
    newstringlist := tstringlist.create;
    try
        numlines := AContext.Connection.IOHandler.ReadInteger;
        for i := 1 to numlines do
            newstringlist.Add(AContext.Connection.IOHandler.ReadLn);

// do something with the stringlist now

    finally
        newstringlist.free;
    end;

The Indy 9 chat demo is very buggy
firstly, the client can lock up on the
Msg := IdTCPClient1.ReadLn('', 5);
line in the Timer1Timer() event

This can be resolved by putting a TIdAntiFreeze on the form, but you still get a memory leak
(just watch the task maanger while your client is connected)
To resolve this you need to disable the TTimer while doing the ReadLn, so your Timer1Timer routine ends up looking something like this :-

procedure TForm1.Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
var
  Com,
  Msg : String;
begin
  if not IdTcpClient1.Connected then
    exit;
  Timer1.Enabled := False;
  try
    Msg := IdTCPClient1.ReadLn('', 5);

    if Msg <> '' then
      if Msg[1] <> '@' then
        begin
        { Not a system command }
          memLines.Lines.Add(Msg);
        end
      else
        begin
        { System command }
          Com := UpperCase(Trim(Copy(Msg, 2, Pos(':', Msg) -2)));
          Msg := UpperCase(Trim(Copy(Msg, Pos(':', Msg) +1, Length(Msg))));
          if Com = 'CLIENTS' then
            lbClients.Items.CommaText := Msg;
        end;
    finally
      Timer1.Enabled := True;
    end;
  end;

anyway, this may be the cause of your problems...

use a TStringStream, and upload it as a stream
I thi nk it's something like :-
  var
    MyStream: TStringStream;
  begin
    MyStream := TStringStream.Create(Memo1.Lines.Text);
    try
      idhttp1.Put('http://www.someserver.com', MyStream)
    finally
      MyStream.Free;
    end;
  end;
