I'm trying to send some data to an aspx page by clickin on button but it doesn't seem to work by using jQuery Ajax Post ,however if I just chage the ajax type to GET it works fine ! but I do really want to make it with ajax post method since my transferred data size is really huge!

 $('#sendDataBtn').click(function () {
 selecteddata = document.getElementById("<%=textbox.ClientID%>").value; //might be over 1800 caracters
      url: '<%=SPContext.Current.Web.Url %>/_admin/CreateFilefromRecievedData.aspx',
      type: 'POST',
      dataType: 'text',
      data: { "data":selecteddata } ,
      headers: {
                "accept": 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded',
                "content-type": 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded',
                "X-RequestDigest": $("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val()
            }, //==> this fixed everything :)
      error: function () {
      success: function (data) {

What does "doesn't seem to work" mean in your case?

Did you verify that the ajax post query is actually being sent (you can see that in your browser developer console).

  • no in my browser i got the alert error message

  • error: function (xhr, ajaxOptions, thrownError) { alert(xhr.status); alert(thrownError); }

  • change your error() function to the one I provided, it will display more accurate error messages
