View Full Version : form.submit does not send headers

9 Sep 2015, 4:41 AM
Ext version tested:

Ext 4.2.1
Browser versions tested against:


form.submit does not send headers' info
Test Case:

url: 'myUrl.php,
submitEmptyText: false,
params : Ext.Object.merge({
datatype: 'Configuration_Save'
}, values),
headers: {
'test': 'fdihosd'
waitMsg: 'Loading data',
success: me.doOnSuccess,
scope: me

// Used to show the ajaxOptions' object
Ext.override(Ext.form.action.Submit, {
doSubmit: function() {
var me = this,
ajaxOptions = Ext.apply(me.createCallback(), {
url: me.getUrl(),
method: me.getMethod(),
headers: me.headers
var form = me.form,
jsonSubmit = me.jsonSubmit || form.jsonSubmit,
paramsProp = jsonSubmit ? 'jsonData' : 'params',
formEl, formInfo;

// For uploads we need to create an actual form that contains the file upload fields,
// and pass that to the ajax call so it can do its iframe-based submit method.
if (form.hasUpload()) {
formInfo = me.buildForm();
ajaxOptions.form = formInfo.formEl;
ajaxOptions.isUpload = true;
} else {
ajaxOptions[paramsProp] = me.getParams(jsonSubmit);


if (formInfo) {

console.log('ajaxOptions') show an object with headers
headers: {
'test': 'fdihosd'
but firebug does not show the headers in the request

While I'm not sure what the override you have included is meant for, perhaps move it above your form declaration?

Also, if you're using firebug forms are treated as an inline iframe and submitted so you won't see them in a console. Check your Net tab and look for the post there, does it have the headers when using that?

Hi Bryan,

thank you for your reply.

I wrote the override code for debugging purpose to see what the ajaxOptions object contain. It was easiest to write the override code than modify the ext-all.js file. It will be executed when you press the send button in the form.

With "firebug does not show the headers in the request" I meant exactly what you wrote: the post request that you can see in the Net tab does not have the heades' info that I added.

Best regards.

In your app is the url correct and not missing a quote?

url: 'myUrl.php,

yes, the url is missing a quote... but this is just a sample code to explain the problem and not the real code.

Thanks for the additional info.

Have you tested this specific scenario in a more recent release (currently 4.2.3)?
