  • Example: HTTP Actions and Proxy Servers

    All three of our HTTP actions have the option of using a table that contains the user's proxy information. The function below will accept the user's proxy information obtained from Input objects and return a table of these values.

    This is the function code:
    Code:
    -- This function will test the variables that were provided and then 
    -- populate the table with valid data
    function GenerateProxyTable(UserName,Password,ServerAddress,ServerPort)
    	
    	-- This creates the default table
    	ProxyTable = {PUserName = "",PPassword = "",PServerAddress = "",PServerPort = 0};
    	
    	-- Make sure that there is data
    	if UserName ~= "" then
    		-- Add the value to the table
    		ProxyTable.PUserName = UserName;
    	end
    
    	-- Make sure that there is data
    	if Password ~= "" then
    		-- Add the value to the table
    		ProxyTable.PPassword = Password;
    	end
    
    	-- Make sure that there is data
    	if ServerAddress ~= "" then
    		-- Add the value to the table
    		ProxyTable.PServerAddress = ServerAddress;
    	end
    
    	-- Convert the string to a number
    	tempNum = String.ToNumber(ServerPort);
    	-- Make sure that there is data
    	if tempNum ~= 0 then
    		-- Add the value to the table
    		ProxyTable.PServerPort = tempNum;
    	end
    	
    	-- Return the generated table
    	return ProxyTable;
    
    end
    You would then call this function using the following code:
    Code:
    -- Get the values from the Input objects
    Name = Input.GetText("UserName");
    Pass = Input.GetText("Password");
    Addr = Input.GetText("Address");
    Port = Input.GetText("Port");
    
    -- Pass these values to the GenerateProxyTable function
    ProxyInfo = GenerateProxyTable(Name,Pass,Addr,Port);
    
    -- Show a dialog that shows the saved data.
    Dialog.Message("Stored Proxy Info","User Name = "..ProxyInfo.PUserName.."\nPassword = "..ProxyInfo.PPassword.."\nAddress = "..ProxyInfo.PServerAddress.."\nPort = "..ProxyInfo.PServerPort);
    The table returned can now be used with any of the following functions:
    • HTTP.Download()
    • HTTP.Submit()
    • HTTP.TestConnection()
