[ajax] send data with POST and getting back xml

 8:57 pm on Apr 17, 2011 (gmt 0)

Hi everybody!

I have a page with a textarea and I want to send it to a PHP script as a POST variable so that I can store it into a database and then getting back an xml files which contains the result of the operation.

My ajax code looks like this:
xhr.open("POST", strName, true);
xhr.setRequestHeader("Content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");

This works well in FF but in IE I get an error. Apparently the object is not correctly created. Where am I wrong?

Probably it's a common problem but I searched the forum and didn't find anything...
Thanks for your help!

IE does not support overrideMimeType so change

if (xhr.overrideMimeType) {
