Vapor: Project 5 - decode failing

Forums > Server-side Swift

Marching through Server-Side Swift. On project5. The upload fails on "return try req.content.decode(UserFile.self).map(to: Response.self) { data in" in the routes.swift file. The error is: "Value of type 'String' required for key 'upload.0.filename'." I made sure the upload file size was ~500KB. Console error details: [ ERROR ] DecodingError.valueNotFound: POST /upload Value of type 'String' required for key 'upload.0.filename'. (ErrorMiddleware.swift:26)

Any ideas? Thanks, Les


FIXED. I had an errant space break from a 2-line cut and paste from the book when I was building the home.leaf page.

I had in home.leaf: <form method="post" action="/upload" enctype="multipart/form- data"> notice the space before the word "data" just after the hyphen. removed the space and the problem was fixed. <form method="post" action="/upload" enctype="multipart/form-data">

Thanks for looking. :-)
