Been beating my head about this all day, and I’m just about out of creative ideas to work around this. Google seems to insist no-one has done it before, but I’m hoping someone here has some ideas I may not have tried.
Basically, I’m trying to do an AppleScripted bulk HTTP upload. The standard way to do it is to do a HTTP POST using a Content-type of ‘multipart/form-data’. I figured I’d just be able to use IE’s ‘OpenURL’ and set the MIME Type to ‘multipart/form-data’ be good to go. I knew I’d have to build my own post data with the correct multipart layout, but that wasn’t too tough. Figured it’d ‘just work’ when I got that done.
It certainly doesn’t seem that way. As far as I can tell, IE’s OpenURL only lets me do a standard urlencoded string for HTTP POST, and not multipart. Ugh.
Does anyone know if this is possible? Has it been done?
