FTPFilesListToArray problem (FTP_ex.au3)

4 posts in this topic

Please could not you explain why I can not get repeated updates using _FTPFilesListToArray function:

script fragment:

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#include <FTP_ex.au3>

$Open_ftp = _FTPOpen('MyFTPControl')

$FTP = _FTPConnect($Open_ftp, "IPaddress", "username", "password")

$s_Remote ='/ftproot/ObjectID/'

_FtpSetCurrentDir($FTP, $s_Remote)

$file_names = _FTPFilesListToArray($FTP, 2)

_ArrayDisplay($file_names)

_FTPClose('MyFTPControl')

; 2 --------------------------------------------------------------

$Open_ftp2 = _FTPOpen('MyFTPControl')

$FTP2 = _FTPConnect($Open_ftp2, "IPaddress", "username", "password")

$s_Remote2 ='/ftproot/ObjectID'

_FtpSetCurrentDir($FTP2, $s_Remote2)

$file_names2 = _FTPFilesListToArray($FTP2, 2)

_ArrayDisplay($file_names2)

***

I get array with files names once, starting script only, but if I do something with files on ftp server after part 1 and before part 2 - add, remove, rename files with working script, the second part of it returns with function _FTPFilesListToArray old data (repeats the same got at the beginning).

I must restart script to get updated info from ftp server.

Where is my mistake?

Thank you.

I don't see the mistake. I don't have the _FTPFilesListToArray function in the udf I use, though I have my own function FTPListFilesmg which returns an array of 2 elements. The first elemnt has a list of folders with their dates and times,and the second element has a list of files with their dates and times. It uses a dll call to WinInetto FtpFindFirstFile whic I imagine _FTPFilesListToArray does as well. However, if I change the files on the server and 'refresh' by calling FTPListFilesmg again it correct shows the current files and directories.

If you want to try my function just ask and I'll post it but I don't see why it should make any difference, but who knows?

I don't know if this issue was solved but I have exactly the same problem !

No updates in the array !

Here is my code:

Func testFTP()
    _GUICtrlListView_Destroy($listaFTP)
    $listaFTP = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 400, 270, 180, 125)

    $server = GUICtrlRead($inputFTP)
    $username = GUICtrlRead($inputuser)
    $pass = GUICtrlRead($inputpass)

    $Open = _FTP_Open('MyFTP Control')

    $Conn = _FTP_Connect($Open, $server, $username, $pass, 1 )
    If $Conn = 0 Then
        _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($listaFTP, " * !!! FTP OFFLINE ??? *", 176)
    Else
        _FTP_DirSetCurrent($Conn, "/x/trans")

        $ftpFiles = _Ftp_ListToArray($Conn, 2)
        If $ftpFiles[0] = 0 Then
            _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($listaFTP, "nessun file ", 176)
        Else
            _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($listaFTP, "numero files: " & $ftpFiles[0], 176)
            For $i = 1 To UBound($ftpFiles) - 1
                _GUICtrlListView_AddItem($listaFTP, $ftpFiles[$i], 0)
            Next
            GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
        EndIf
    EndIf
    $Ftpc = _FTP_Close($Open)

EndFunc   ;==>testFTP

No ideas ?

I was thinking of shift to another UDF for FTP...

Solved !

I used the $INTERNET_FLAG_RESYNCHRONIZE flag .

So the sintax is

$ftpFiles = _Ftp_ListToArray($Conn, 2,$INTERNET_FLAG_RELOAD)

and it is updating the file list.

..but in the manual this is not documented and i consider _Ftp_ListToArray not correct and or not finished for now.
