Simple 'POST' of a file to LC Server

Post by dave.kilroy » Fri Apr 29, 2016 12:53 pm

Hi, last week a friend asked me for examples of uploading a binary file from mobile to LC Server - he had previously been using FTP and now needed to change. I pointed him to probably the best file upload for mobile solution I know of by John Criag http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.ph ... 1d2#p96775 - it works everywhere (including mobile) and works in the background.

But my friend needed something much simpler so a few days ago I created a demo stack and LC Server file and was going to send to my friend - but too late he had already got things to work.

So for anyone else out there who needs a simple example of how to POST files to a server that's running LC server please see the attached:

I have to say thank you David (Dave?)

I hate getting the Gorilla as well, when all I want is the Banana.

Works a treat

Regards Lagi

Thanks Dave, that is great. This one goes into my LiveCode Example stacks folder. (Actually I just had to create a new one today. Couldn't find the one I have. I am sure I have many, each with a few( or just one) Stacks in them.)

I just looked at the sample stacks page on the LiveCode site. I quick search for Post' did not show anything. Perhaps you could submit it there.

Hmmm.... I can't log into http://livecodeshare.runrev.com/login/

I tried my old password and it does not work and there doesn't appear to be any place to reset the password.

@Martin - no there's nothing on the webpage, but in LiveCode's IDE click on 'Sample Stacks' and from there 'login' (there is also a 'forgot your password' link)

@Lagi - thanks for another banana pun/analogy/story! That's a really nice one involving gorillas :) (I blame bernd for my so-called banana interest)

@both - glad the stack's of use (and yes, so often it's easier to code up something afresh rather than trying to find it amongst my 'snippet-pile') - I've never actually put anything on http://livecodeshare.runrev.com so I might just do it this time!
