hi,

i try to read a PUT request data, but cannot get the value.

With post, i use the documented way, Req:post_param("first_name").

how do i read the value of first_name from the form submit by PUT request, not POST request.

Thanks,

M

Hi,

Try Req:post_param(<<"first_name">>)

Hi, 

I try it and the same, i get undefined.

The PUT request is a JSON request, not from a form as this sent from a SPA application.

But i manage to get the data from the Req:request_body() and process it like below.

    {struct, Body} = mochijson2:decode(Req:request_body()),
    Fname = proplists:get_value(<<"first_name">>,Body, "None"),

now i can get the PUT request, same with POST request with json incoming data.

Any better way on handling this? i got above from this old mail thread here and its works.

Thanks,

Mulianto
