I am trying to sent a PATCH request from the client to the rails backend.
This works fine in FF/Chrome and IE10+.
The problem seems to be XDomainRequest. I am using jQuery and tried to just send a POST request and change it to PATCH with
Unfortunately it seems that IE9 does not allow to set custom headers, since it does not show up in the HTTP Request.
On the backend I get errors, because the route for a POST request is not found.
I also tried appending
_method=patch to the URL params and
_method: "patch" to the request body, but it still doesnt work. Also I can not change the Content-Type to anything else than Plain/Text in IE9.
Is there any way to sent a POST request from IE9 and get it recognized as a PATCH Request by my Rails Backend?
