WebUrlPutBin Function


Sends binary data to the Web server by means of the HTTP PUT method. Instead of ASCII-encoded content, binary data may be sent using this function. The Content-Length header will automatically be added to the request. The appropriate Content-Type has to be specified. In order to send binary data (octets) more safely over the Internet, use the WebBase64Encode to convert the data to 6-bit ASCII characters.

Include file

              in sContent : string,
              in fWait    : float optional): boolean;

Return value

  • true if the worker thread posting the form content to the server could be started successfully

  • false otherwise
