iOS Question

Submit data to Google Spreadsheet Form from Objective-C

Is there a library, blog post, etc. that can be used to submit data to a Google Spreadsheet using Forms ?

I could probably write up the Http POST stuff but I was wondering if someone had done so already that I can utilize.

This question is like the iOS equivalent of this question for Android.

Answer Source

based on @Saad Farooq's answer, I actually tried writing the code

- (void)viewDidLoad
    [super viewDidLoad];

    //if there is a connection going on just cancel it.
    [self.connection cancel];

    //initialize new mutable data
    NSMutableData *data = [[NSMutableData alloc] init];
    self.receivedData = data;

    //initialize url that is going to be fetched.
    NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:@""];

    //initialize a request from url
    NSMutableURLRequest *request = [NSMutableURLRequest requestWithURL:[url standardizedURL]];

    //set http method
    [request setHTTPMethod:@"POST"];
    //initialize a post data
    NSString *postData = @"entry.154268020=iOS&entry.940479455=vajhcsd&entry.247556683=BJKSVDB";
    //set request content type we MUST set this value.

    [request setValue:@"application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=utf-8" forHTTPHeaderField:@"Content-Type"];

    //set post data of request
    [request setHTTPBody:[postData dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]];

    //initialize a connection from request
    NSURLConnection *connection = [[NSURLConnection alloc] initWithRequest:request delegate:self];
    self.connection = connection;

    //start the connection
    [connection start];


and it actually works. You need to extract the URLs etc from @Saad's tutorial here. BTW, I was the one who tried posting that the previous links. A big thank you to the SO staff who informed him.
