View Full Version : using UIProgressView

Nov 25, 2009, 06:45 AM

I was wondering how can I implement the UIProgressView to show my users the status of their upload.

here is my upload code:

- (void)viewDidLoad {
self.imgPicker = [[UIImagePickerController alloc] init];
self.imgPicker.allowsImageEditing = YES;
self.imgPicker.delegate = self;

- (IBAction)grabImage {
[self presentModalViewController:self.imgPicker animated:YES];

- (IBAction)uploadImage {
turning the image into a NSData object
getting the image back out of the UIImageView
setting the quality to 90
NSData *imageData = UIImageJPEGRepresentation(image.image, 90);
// setting up the URL to post to
NSString *urlString = @"http://mozymac.com/upload.php";

// setting up the request object now
NSMutableURLRequest *request = [[[NSMutableURLRequest alloc] init] autorelease];
[request setURL:[NSURL URLWithString:urlString]];
[request setHTTPMethod:@"POST"];

add some header info now
we always need a boundary when we post a file
also we need to set the content type

You might want to generate a random boundary.. this is just the same
as my output from wireshark on a valid html post
NSString *boundary = [NSString stringWithString:@"---------------------------14737809831466499882746641449"];
NSString *contentType = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"multipart/form-data; boundary=%@",boundary];
[request addValue:contentType forHTTPHeaderField: @"Content-Type"];

now lets create the body of the post
NSMutableData *body = [NSMutableData data];
[body appendData:[[NSString stringWithFormat:@"\r\n--%@\r\n",boundary] dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]];
[body appendData:[[NSString stringWithString:@"Content-Disposition: form-data; name=\"userfile\"; filename=\".jpg\"\r\n"] dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]];
[body appendData:[[NSString stringWithString:@"Content-Type: application/octet-stream\r\n\r\n"] dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]];
[body appendData:[NSData dataWithData:imageData]];
[body appendData:[[NSString stringWithFormat:@"\r\n--%@--\r\n",boundary] dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]];
// setting the body of the post to the reqeust
[request setHTTPBody:body];

// now lets make the connection to the web
NSData *returnData = [NSURLConnection sendSynchronousRequest:request returningResponse:nil error:nil];
NSString *returnString = [[NSString alloc] initWithData:returnData encoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];


- (void)imagePickerController:(UIImagePickerController *)picker didFinishPickingImage:(UIImage *)img editingInfo:(NSDictionary *)editInfo {
image.image = img;
[[picker parentViewController] dismissModalViewControllerAnimated:YES];

// need to show the upload image button now
upload.hidden = NO;

Don't use sendSynchronousRequest:.

Use the asynchronous methods with a delegate. It's well covered in the documentation and there are lots of examples to be found on here before you ask :)
