View Full Version : form.submit sends POST and ignores method config

22 May 2012, 12:46 AM

I'm trying to send a form but wants to config it to use PUT instead of POST,
here's my code:

var form = record.up('form').getForm();
url: '/some/url/',
method: 'PUT',
waitMsg: 'Uploading your photo...',
success: function(fp, o) {
Ext.Msg.alert('Success', 'Your photo "' + o.result.file + '" has been uploaded.');

but in the network I see it sends a POST request (thus causing my backend to deny the request as method not allowed)

What am I missing here?
Is this an ExtJS 4.1 bug?

Hi grnadav,

I debug your code on firebug console, and find the form value submitted with "PUT" method.
May be you have browser cache problem, clear browser cache and try again.

I think (haven't actually tested it in ext4 yet) that the form submit has it's own proxy configuration and makes a classic form-submit-post without json data either. If you want to use your model's config - and you allready have a record (it's a model!) in your hand - why don't you save this record (record.save)? For synchronization of your form's data to the record use formPanel.getForm().updateRecord(record);. After that you can save it... and if you configured a rest-proxy you will see the wanted PUT, if the record's id is set and it's not phantom - otherwise it would be POST.

Well, I tested this again and again on Chrome. and it does send a POST on Chrome....
