Progress notification

Called during file transfer.


  • Basic
object.Progress Owner, User, Position, Total
The Progress(object,Owner,User,Position,Total) syntax has these parts:
objectAn expression evaluating to an object of type wodFTPDNotify.
OwnerA wodFTPDCom object. Reference to wodFTPServer instance that called this notification method.
UserA FtpUser object. Reference to user who is transferring file.
PositionA Long value. Current position of file transfer.
TotalA Long value. Total size of file that will be transferred, if known.


NOTE: This method is called only if you implemented IwodFTPDNotify interface in your application, and wodFTPD.Notification property has received reference to instance of your implementation.

Progress notification method is called during file upload or download. You can track and calculate client's speed using this property.

If user is uploading file, its size is not known before upload is completed - thus Total and Position arguments will always contain same value - total number of bytes uploaded so far.

Progress notification method will be called until file size exceeds 4.2gb. After that size, Progress64 notification method will be called instead.

NOTE: it is possible that Position or Total values become negative - it is because unsigned values are used, but VB (and other environments) expect to see signed values. If this happens, we suggest you call Progress64 notification from within Progress notification, and apply code as shown in Progress64 help page.
