Description

A Node with the ability to send HTTP requests. Uses a HTTPClient internally, supports HTTPS.

Can be used to make HTTP requests or download files via HTTP.

Member Function Description

  • void cancel_request ( )

Cancel the current request.

  • int get_body_size ( ) const

Return the response body length.

  • int get_body_size_limit ( ) const

Return current body size limit.

  • String get_download_file ( ) const

Return the file this request will download into.

  • int get_downloaded_bytes ( ) const

Return the amount of bytes this HTTPRequest downloaded.

  • int get_http_client_status ( ) const

Return the current status of the underlying HTTPClient.

  • int get_max_redirects ( ) const

Return the maximum amount of redirects that will be followed.

  • bool is_using_threads ( ) const

Whether this request is using threads.

Make a HTTP request (by default GET, unless specified otherwise as method). The url is the complete url including “http://” or “https://” which will be parsed for a host and a port.

The custom_headers are HTTP request headers which will be used. If User-Agent is not specified a Godot specific will be used.

The ssl_validate_domain specifies if in case of HTTPS the server certificate should be verified.

  • void set_body_size_limit ( int bytes )

Set the response body size limit.

  • void set_download_file ( String path )

Set the file to download into. Outputs the response body into the file.

  • void set_ip_type ( int ip_type )
  • void set_max_redirects ( int amount )

Set the maximum amount of redirects the request will follow.

  • void set_use_threads ( bool enable )

Make this HTTPRequest use threads.
