libURLFormData formats data in the standard format suitable for sending to form processing CGIs and other processes on a web server.


libURLFormData(key_1, value_1, ..., key_n, value_n)


put "John" into tName
put "Hello" into tMessage
get libURLFormData("name", tName,"message", tMessage)
post it to url ""

In this case, the data posted to the url will look like this:


The function accepts variable numbers of parameters and treats them as key-value pairs. The first parameter is the name of the first form part, the second the value of the first part, the third is the name of the second part, and so on.

The Content-Type header is set to "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" by default when using post. There is no need to set the httpHeaders unless you have previously set the Content-Type header to something else.
