Manual Request Editor dialog

This dialog allows you to create a request from scratch which will be submitted to the specified target.

Request tab

This shows the request header and data, either in one or two panels depending on the options chosen.

A 'Method' pull down allows you to switch between the HTTP methods. Note that when the method is changed to a POST then any URL parameters are moved into the body, and when the method is changed from a POST then any parameters in the body are moved to the URL.

Pull downs allow you to select different Views for the Request header and body.

layout_tabbed.png  Request and Response tabs side by side

This changes the display so that the request and response tabs are side by side. This increases the information that can be displayed but means you cannot see both the request and response at the same time.

layout_vertical_split.png  Request shown above Response

This changes the display so that the request panel is shown above the response panel. This decreases the information that can be displayed but means you can see both the request and response at the same time.

layout_horizontal_split.png  Request and Response panels side by side

This changes the display so that the request panel is shown to the left of the response panel. This decreases the information that can be displayed but means you can see both the request and response at the same time.

Response tab

This shows the data sent to your browser in response to the request that you submitted, either in one or two panels depending on the options chosen.

Pull downs allow you to select different Views for the Response header and body.
