Post From: Control Bar Buttons Using Http Request Crashing Sierra Chart

Hi, i am trying to make http post request when a button is clicked but for some reason Sierra Chart is shutting (crashing) down, it's definately the code used for sc.MakeHTTPPOSTRequest as i can display the message in the log if i don't use sc.MakeHTTPPOSTRequest. But this exact code for sc.MakeHTTPPOSTRequest works in my other study on the chart. Any Suggestions!!. Thanks
#include "sierrachart.h"
#include <iostream>
#include <string.h>
#include <sstream>
SCDLLName("MyToolbarButton")
void PassingSCStrutureExampleFunction(SCStudyInterfaceRef sc)
{
}
SCSFExport scsf_MyToolBarButton(SCStudyInterfaceRef sc)
{
if (sc.SetDefaults)
{
// Set the configuration and defaults

sc.GraphName = "MY ToolBar Button";

sc.StudyDescription = "This code does something";

sc.GraphRegion = 0;

sc.AutoLoop = 0;

sc.Input[0].Name = "Post";
sc.Input[0].SetInt(0);

return;
}
if (sc.IsFullRecalculation)
{
sc.SetCustomStudyControlBarButtonHoverText(ACS_BUTTON_1, "CLICK");
sc.SetCustomStudyControlBarButtonText(ACS_BUTTON_1, "CLICK");
}


enum { REQUEST_NOT_SENT = 0, REQUEST_SENT, REQUEST_RECEIVED };
int& RequestState = sc.GetPersistentInt(1);
n_ACSIL::s_HTTPHeader HTTPHeader;
HTTPHeader.Name = "Some-Header";
HTTPHeader.Value = "123";
int NumberOfHeaders = 2;
int postData = sc.Input[0].GetInt();
const char* APIURL = "http://localhost:9000/demo";
std::string test;
SCDateTime SysTime = sc.CurrentSystemDateTime;
SCString MessageText;

// wait for a button
if (sc.MenuEventID == ACS_BUTTON_1 && postData > 0)
{
if (sc.PointerEventType == SC_ACS_BUTTON_ON) {
MessageText.AppendFormat("Clicked Now %i, ", sc.MenuEventID);
sc.AddMessageToLog(MessageText, 0);

test = "SOMEVALUE";
std::string str = "&test=" + test

const char *cstr = str.c_str();
if (!sc.MakeHTTPPOSTRequest(APIURL, cstr, &HTTPHeader, NumberOfHeaders)) {
sc.AddMessageToLog("Error making HTTP request.", 1);
RequestState = REQUEST_NOT_SENT;
} else {
sc.AddMessageToLog(APIURL, 1);
sc.AddMessageToLog("BUY HTTP request Made.", 1);
RequestState = REQUEST_SENT;
}
// reset button to off
sc.SetCustomStudyControlBarButtonEnable(sc.MenuEventID, 0);

}
else if (sc.PointerEventType == SC_ACS_BUTTON_OFF){
sc.AddMessageToLog("ACS Button Off Event.", 1);
}

sc.SetCustomStudyControlBarButtonEnable(sc.PriorSelectedCustomStudyControlBarButtonNumber, 0);
}
}
