Setting 'referer' in xhr header

    Question

  • I'm trying to login via POST to a website that uses django CSRF.

    WinJS.xhr({
       type: "post",
       url: "myurl",
       headers: { "Content-type": "application/x-www-form-urlencoded", "Referer": "referalURL"},
       data: params
    }).then(success, failure)

    Is that all that's required to set the referer header in the XHR post? Because I'm getting an error that it's not set. I know that cookies are taken out of response headers so I was curious if there were other undocumented header changes.
