what is sent by browser to server

asked 2019-03-29 12:22:34 +0000

I am developing mvc application. I have an HTML Form containing - Labels, Text Boxes, Drop Down Lists and Web Grid(HTML Table).

When I Click on Update Button (i.e. use POST Method), what exactly is sent by browser to say IIS Web Server. If you can provide ACTUAL and ALL text contents (such as HTTP/1.1, content-length=123456, actual controls and their contents) as a text file and snapshot to me, it will really help me to improve my web development.

On Server side I use From Server on wards, I have full understanding up to databases etc. I am quite familiar with JavaScript, jQuery, CSS3, jSON etc. I also know as to how to use model, fill data in a view and return view from controller.

With Kind Regards, Dilip Nagle

Hi Dilip,

Wireshark is the wrong tool for this task. Wireshark will look at packets when you want to look at text objects like JSON.

You want to use the "Network" tab of your browsers' developer tools to see what is sent and how long it takes. Browser documentation on network monitoring is quite good in both the Chrome docs and Firefox docs.
