HTTP POST Response Not Detected


Hello everyone ^.^

So far I am enjoying Nativescript and this is my first post on this forum :slight_smile:

My app is making a POST request to my server and sending some login data. It gets to the server OK and the server responds with a status 200, but for some reason the server response is not being picked up by the app. I am using code similar to the POST example provided here:


        url: "",
        method: "POST",
        headers: { "Content-Type": "application/json" },
        content: JSON.stringify({
            username: page.getViewById("username").text,
            password: hash


        const result = response.content.toJSON();
        console.log("response: " + result);

    }, function(e){
        console.log("error: " + e.content.toJSON());

This issue happens on both iOS and Android. I have tried deliberately mistyping the URL and hoped that I would get an error message, but that didn’t work either.

Getting images from my server works when I make a GET request in the XML file, so I’m not sure what’s gone wrong here.

I greatly appreciate any help!!


Did you verify the server response using any REST client, may be POSTMAN?

If it works on REST client but not only in app, would you mind setting up a playground example where we can reproduce the issue?


Hello ^.^

Thanks for the reply!

I used Postman and the server definitely works. I managed to solve my problem by using “fetch” instead of “http”, although I’m still a little curious why original code doesn’t work.



I can’t see what your server is running but using PHP on the server I had to do this:

$_POST = json_decode(file_get_contents('php://input'), true);
