  • Yep - You can find an example in the KitchenSink reference project.

    • Looking at the xhr.js file from KitchenSink it says that xhr_fileupload.js test is 'iPhone OS' only:

      // add iphone specific tests
      if (Titanium.Platform.name == 'iPhone OS')
        data.push({title:'setTimeout', hasChild:true, test:'../examples/xhr_settimeout.js'});
        data.push({title:'File Upload', hasChild:true, test:'../examples/xhr_fileupload.js'});

      I tried the twitpic file upload on Android but without any success.

      Any suggestions about file upload on Android?

    • It's working on in the simulator when I tried it a few days ago.
      I'll see if I can find the code.

  • This code was working as of 2 mins ago when I tested it

    if (Titanium.Network.online) {
        var image = win.toImage();
        var xhr = Titanium.Network.createHTTPClient();
        xhr.onerror = function(e) {
            Ti.UI.createAlertDialog({title:'Error', message:e.error}).show();
            Ti.API.info('IN ERROR ' + e.error);
        xhr.onload = function(e) {
            Ti.UI.createAlertDialog({title:'Success', message:'status code ' + this.status}).show();
            Ti.API.info('IN ONLOAD ' + this.status + ' readyState ' + this.readyState);
        xhr.onsendstream = function(e) {
            Ti.API.info('ONSENDSTREAM - PROGRESS: ' + e.progress);
        // open the client
        xhr.send({media:image,username:'xxx',password:'yyy',message:'check me out'});
    } else {
        Ti.UI.createAlertDialog({title:'Dude!', message:'Umm - you need to be connected to the network'}).show();    

    ofc - you'll need to change xxx & yyy to your own password.

    • Thanks David for your answers!

      I succeed to upload twitpic using the code from KitchenSink and using Titanium Mobile version 1.3.2 and using the latest version from Git (1.3.3).

      However, it doesn't work for version 1.3.0 which I actually used before when reporting the problem.

      And also, this code above does not work for me, for any version of the mentioned 3, maybe because of win.toImage() function. I receive status 200, but no image on tweetpic.

      I will further research what's the problem and report the findings here.
