HttpRequestMessage and HTML/ASP.Net form

In the QueryableSample project, use HttpRequestMessage is illustrated to post to an API url.

The example

request.Content = new ObjectContent<Contact>(contact, "application/xml");
request.Headers.Accept.Add(new MediaTypeWithQualityHeaderValue("application/xml"));
var response = client.Send(request);

uses a ObjectContent class as a Content for HttpRequestMessage . I assume this is XML message that is posted to URL.

Is there any way to post a HTML/ASP,Net form as a JSON payload using HttpRequestMessage ?

Did you ever figure out how to post in json, instead of xml?

Did you try simply replacing “application/xml” with “application/json” in the above code?

Daniel, I am having trouble using application/x-www-form-urlencoded.  I was wondering if he was having the same problem that I was, meaning everything is being sent via xml no matter what application you specify.
