FTPGetLastStatus (socket[,protocoltext]) Returns status


Note: The flag is set according to whether Omnis was able to make a call to this external command.

This Web command is multi-threaded,allowing another thread to execute in the multi-threaded server while it runs. Note that the same socket cannot safely be used concurrently by more than one thread.

FTPGetLastStatus returns status information corresponding to the last FTP command executed on a connected FTP socket.

Socket is an Omnis Long Integer field containing a socket opened to an FTP server using FTPConnect.

ProtocolText is an optional Omnis Character field parameter, into which FTPGetLastStatus places the FTP protocol exchange that occurred on the control connection to the FTP server, for the last FTP command executed. For example, if you execute FTPPwd, and then call FTPGetLastStatus, ProtocolText might contain:

-> PWD
<- 257 "/" is current directory.

Note that "->" prefixes text sent to the server, and "<-" prefixes text received from the server.

Status is an Omnis Long Integer field which receives the return status of the last FTP command executed. This information is really redundant, but is provided for compatibility. The value returned is one of the negative error codes. Possible error codes are listed in the Web Command Error Codes Appendix.

; set file transfer mode to asci
FTPType (iFTPSocket,0) Returns lErrCode

  ; assumes you are already in the correct folder on the ftp server so only the file name is needed  Calculate lRemoteFile as 'myFileToDownload.txt'

  Calculate lLocalFileName as con(sys(115),'downloadFolder',sys(9),lRemoteFile)
  ; download the file
  FTPGet (iFTPSocket,lRemoteFile,lLocalFileName) Returns lErrCode
  If lErrCode
    FTPGetLastStatus (iFTPSocket,iServerReplyText) Returns lErrCode
    OK message FTP Error {[con("Error transferring file ",upp(lRemoteFile),kCr,"Error text from the server: ",kCr,iServerReplyText)]}
