ChangeDir event

Fires when user wants to change directory.


  • Basic
Private Sub object_ChangeDir(User, RelativePath, ResolvedPath, Action)
The ChangeDir(object,User,RelativePath,ResolvedPath,Action) syntax has these parts:
objectAn expression evaluating to an object of type wodFTPD.
UserA FtpUser object. Reference to user who is changing directory.
RelativePathA String value. Path as seen by the user.
ResolvedPathA String value. Full path to folder on your system.
ActionA FtpActions enumeration, as described in settings. When set to Deny/SilentDeny, wodFTPServer denies this action.


ChangeDir event is fired when client sends 'CWD' or 'CDUP' commands, requesting directory to be changed. At this point you can 'protect' some directories with your code, thus rejecting client's request. However, SFTP protocol internally does not support CWD command and doesn't have alternative for it - so this event will never fire in SFTP protocol mode.

The settings for Action are
Constant Value Description
Deny0 Deny execution of the action.
Allow 1 Allow to execute action.
SilentDeny2 Silently deny execution of the action.
SilentAllow 3 Silently allow to execute action.
