Automated FTP Submission Utility

4 posts in this topic

I had to develop an FTP submission utility to distribute at work, and decided to use AutoIt for the job. This utility was actually part of a larger application, but I thought it came out rather well so I decided to break it out into a standalone utility and post it here. Hopefully, others can benifit from it.

This script was written and compiled with AutoIt version 3.1.1-68-beta (though I'm not sure if the beta version is actually required for this component). It uses the FTP user defined functions provided by w0uter here: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=12473., including my Passive FTP modifications documented in post #32. It could be pretty easily modified to use the standard FTP.au3 UDFs instead, but personally I find passive FTP more reliable.

Hope you find this useful. By the way, one capability I'd love to add is drag-and-drop. I just could not figure out how to enable drag-and-drop to a ListView control. If any AutoIt gurus feel like adding this capability, please post the results here. Enjoy!

nitro, see this post for dragdrop script that demonstrates how to add drag/drop functionality to your au3 app.

Thanks for the pointer, flyingboz. I had actually looked at that script earlier, though (as well as severl others), but still couldn't get drag-and-drop to work in conjunction with the other capabilities I want in the script. For example, I want each filename individually selectable to remove them, I want to allow right-click actions on each file, etc.

ListView is the only control I could make support all of those options, but it doesn't seem to support drag-and-drop. Input and Edit controls will let me drag-and-drop, but I can't make them support all of the other capabilities I included. It's a vicious cycle. :-)

I worked around it by creating an drag/drop editbox which monitored for messages, and then populated the listbox with the add'l file(s). A little clunky, but quite operational. If you make room in your GUI for a "drag files here" window, and monitor for the message you should be fine.

If you need a code snippet, I can probably drag up my old FTP automation utility, based on the first "official" GUI release that supported drag/drop.
