Hi,
I need to do a specific Post request on a specific website form with idhttp.
So I monitored all the POST data with HTTPFOX ( firefox plugin ), and i'm facing a particular problem :

The website requires me to add to my post request an Empty File Field.

It looks like this on HttpFox :
content-Disposition: form-data; name="file"; filename=""
content-type: application/octet-stream

Open in new window


Here's my code for it:

MPData2.addfile('file','','application/octet-stream'); 

Open in new window


This compiles fine, however at runtime when monitoring the requests with IDlogevent, I can see that once it reaches this particular line, the software just stops.It doesn't freeze since everything is threaded.

Finally found a solution :

All I had to do was NOT SEND the file parameter the second Time, seems like it wasn't a required parameter after all.
