The posturl statement loads a resource from the internet, with form data.
This statement has four parameters:
variable – is the name of the variable into which you wish to place the downloaded resource (usually text).
url – is the address of the resource to be loaded, for example
item – is the name of a form item expected by the server. Each name parameter must be paired with a value parameter (see below), you can have as many item/value pairs as the server calls for.
value – is the value of a form item.
This statement loads a resource from the internet, with form data. In this example, two values are posted, Name and Email.
local webPage posturl webPage,"http://www.somesite.com/register", "Name","John Smith", "Email","email@example.com" displaydata webPage
This function returns whatever data the server responds with, usually HTML text.
Note: If you need more control over loading the resource, use the url( function instead.
Note: The posturl statement is synchronous. This means that Panorama stops in its tracks until the communication is complete, so you should avoid this function if possible and use urltask( instead.
|10.0||Updated||Carried over from Panorama 6.0, but now can return binary data as well as text.|
