Additional Comments

Use the revXMLRPC_CreateRequest function to create an XML-RPC document that you can use with other XML-RPC library commands and functions.

Parameters:

The host is the IP address or domain name of the host you want to connect to.

The port is the port number you want to connect to. If you don't specify a port, port 80 is used. (On most systems, port 80 is used for HTTP connections.)

The path is usually a file path, which allows the host to determine which resource handles your request.

The protocol determines the type of connection that is established with the host. By default, XML-RPC uses HTTP connections, but for added security you can use HTTPS connections, if the host supports it.

Value:

The revXMLRPC_CreateRequest function returns a document ID which can be used to refer to the request in other XML-RPC library commands and functions. The request ID is always a positive integer.

If the function encounters an error while parsing the data, it returns an error message beginning with "xmlrpcerr".

Comments:

If the host is empty, the revXMLRPC_CreateRequest function defaults the request host to be the computer runnning the application, also known as "localhost"

If the port is empty, the revXMLRPC_CreateRequest function defaults the request port to 80, which is the default port for HTTP connections.

If the path is empty, the revXMLRPC_CreateRequest function defaults the request path to "RPC2", which is the standard path for XML-RPC server resources.

If the protocol is empty, the revXMLRPC_CreateRequest function defaults the request protocol to HTTP connections.

If the revXMLRPC_CreateRequest function encounters an error, it returns an error message starting with "xmlrpcerr".

Important! The revXMLRPC_CreateRequestfunction is part of the XML-RPC library. To ensure that the function works in a standalone application, you must include this custom library when you create your standalone. In the Inclusions section on the General screen of the Standalone Application Settings window, make sure "XML-RPC Library" is selected in the list of script libraries.
