I am evaluating SecureBlackBox on Windows Phone because SecureBlackBox has some features that Native Windows Phone http client lacks.

We need a http PATCH method feature.

Does SecureBlackBox support http PATCH method?

Thank you for a good question.

PATCH method is not a part of the HTTP specification (not of its core), so there's no built-in support for it in the component itself. You can send custom request using TElHTTPSClient.CustomRequest method (it lets you attach the data stream to send).

We'll add Patch method as a separate method to SecureBlackbox 13.

Or maybe we won't add such a method, because the RFC for Patch command is very vague and leaves a lot to application-specific implementations, which means that introducing a Patch command will give nothing comparing to CustomRequest() method.
