Owner property

Holds file or directory owner.


A String value


  • Basic
object.Owner [= value]
The Owner(object,value) syntax has these parts:
objectAn expression evaluating to an object of type DirItem.
valueA String value.


On operating systems that support file ownership, each file/folder will have its owning user, and owning group. Owner property will provide you with information about the owning user - most typically user who is responsible for contents of a file/folder, and user who is allowed to change it. Most servers will provide this information as owner name (root, joe, bob etc...) but it is possible also to show them with number. In either case, wodFtpDLX does not interfere with this information and show it as is.

Just a reminder - you must call ListDir to get directory listing, and then access files through Ftp.DirItems property in order for this property to be available!
