        SuccessBox("Please, allow this program to connect to internet (to in order to send list data");

        JSONArray a;
        JSONObject *obj;
        String str;

        for(int i = 0; i < c; i++)
            obj = new JSONObject;
            list.a.GetItemString(i, str);
            obj->AddValue("a", new JSONString(str));
            obj->AddValue("b", new JSONNumber(list.b.value.Get(i)));
            obj->AddValue("c", new JSONNumber(list.c.value.Get(i)));
        HttpAccess h;
        HttpAccess::MultipartParams p;
