FormData

The FormData interface provides a way to easily construct a set of key/value pairs representing form fields and their values, which can then be easily sent using the XMLHttpRequest.send() method. It uses the same format a form would use if the encoding type were set to "multipart/form-data".

You can also pass it directly to the URLSearchParams constructor if you want to generate query parameters in the way a <form> would do if it were using simple GET submission.

An object implementing FormData can directly be used in a for...of structure, instead of entries(): for (var p of myFormData) is equivalent to for (var p of myFormData.entries()).

Note: This feature is available in Web Workers.
