To set the content type to "multipart/form-data" in Axios, you need to use the FormData API to create a multipart form data object and set the appropriate headers in the Axios request. Here's how you can do it:

import axios from 'axios'; // Function to make the Axios request with multipart/form-data async function uploadFormData() { try { const formData = new FormData(); // Append your form data fields and files here formData.append('field1', 'value1'); formData.append('field2', 'value2'); formData.append('file', fileObject); // Replace fileObject with your file data // Make the Axios POST request with multipart/form-data const response = await'your_api_endpoint', formData, { headers: { 'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data', // Set the content type to multipart/form-data }, }); console.log(; // Response data received from the server } catch (error) { console.error('Error occurred:', error); } }

In this example, we are using FormData to create the multipart form data object. You can use the append() method to add form fields and file data to the FormData object. Replace 'your_api_endpoint' with the actual API endpoint URL to which you want to send the multipart form data.

In the Axios request, we pass the formData object as the second argument and set the Content-Type header to 'multipart/form-data' in the headers option. This tells the server that we are sending multipart form data in the request.

Ensure that you include the necessary form fields and files in the FormData object according to your specific use case.

Note: When sending files in multipart/form-data, make sure to handle file uploads appropriately on the server-side as well. The server should be able to parse and handle the multipart form data to process the uploaded files correctly.
