MakeDir method

Creates directory on the server.




  • Basic
The MakeDir(object,RemotePath) syntax has these parts:
objectAn expression evaluating to an object of type wodFtpDLX.
RemotePathOptional. A Variant value. String expression as full path to a directory that should be created on the server.


This method will create directory on remote server, if possible. Once completed, Done event will be fired. If no error occurs, ErrorCode argument in Done event will be set to 0 (zero). If error occurred, ErrorCode will hold number for the error, and ErrorText will contain description for the error.

By definition, you should not expect from server to create directories recursively. In other words, if you specify something like

for RemotePath, and directory

does not exist - most probably you will get an error from the server. However - it is possible that some server-side implementations also support this feature.

No wildcards can be used for RemotePath argument. RFC protocol specifications for FTP or SFTP do not allow them.

Do not forget that RemotePath should always specify full absolute path (i.e. /home/joe/something) instead of relative path (i.e. joe/something).
