jQuery Question

Pass accepts header parameter to jquery ajax

When I inspect the following code in Chrome Console it shows me a Request header

Accept:undefined


jQuery.ajax({
url: _this.attr('href'),
accepts: "application/json; charset=utf-8",

});
});


How do I set accept type as json. I don't want to set a custom header or use
beforeSend

Answer

Try this ,

$.ajax({     
  headers: {          
    Accept: "text/plain; charset=utf-8",         
    "Content-Type": "text/plain; charset=utf-8"   
  }     
  data: "data",    
  success : function(response) {  
    // ...
  }
});
