Send data as multipart/form-data

I have .NET Core back end, that receive DTO as form-data.

Here is controller

    public async Task<IActionResult> Register([FromForm] RegisterDto model)
        var result = await _authAppService.Register(model);
        if (result.Code == 409)
            return BadRequest();

        return Ok(result.Token);

Here is DTO
 public class RegisterDto
    public string Email { get; set; }
    public string Password { get; set; }
    public string PasswordConfirmation { get; set; }
    public string FirstName { get; set; }
    public string LastName { get; set; }
    public string GcmToken { get; set; }

I need to send data from Angular app via form-data

I defined model at Angular side

Here is it

export class RegisterDto{
Email: string;
Password: string;
PasswordConfirmation: string;
FirstName: string;
LastName: string;


And this is how I try to do form-data sending

  const formData =  new FormData();


in append method I have this erroк

Expected 2-3 arguments, but got 1.ts(2554)

How I can send DTO via form data?

Method 1

You can’t append the whole object without giving it a field name. As the error says it acceptes 2-3 arguments however you are only providing one argument without giving it a field name.

     const formData = new FormData();
     formData.append('regObj', this.registerObject);

however it’s good if you append each field as formdata value such as.
formGroup: FormGroup;
formData: FormData;

register() { 
    this.formData.append('Email', this.formGroup.controls.Email.value);
    this.formData.append('Password', this.formGroup.controls.Password.value);
    this.formData.append('FirstName', this.formGroup.controls.FirstName.value);
    this.formData.append('LastName', this.formGroup.controls.LastName.value);

    // call your service and send it
