Could anyone tell me why the following statement does not send the post data to the designated URL? The URL is called but on the server when I print $_POST - I get an empty array. If I print the message in the console before adding it to the data - it shows the correct content.

$'request-url', { 'message' : message });

I've also tried it with the data as a string (with the same outcome):

$'request-url', "message=" + message);

It seems to be working when I use it in the following format:


method: 'POST', 

url: 'request-url', 

data: "message=" + message, 

headers: {'Content-Type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'} 


but is there a way of doing it with the $ - and do I always have to include the header in order for it to work? I believe that the above content type is specifying the format of the sent data, but can I send it as a javascript object?

If you are receiving the request in PHP you can use:

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

To access an array in PHP from an AngularJS POST.
