Transfers data from a local buffer and stores it in a file on the
object.PutData( RemoteFile, Buffer,
[Length], [Reserved] )
- A string that specifies the file on the server that will
contain the data being transferred. If the file already exists, it
will be overwritten. The file pathing and name conventions must be
that of the server.
- This parameter specifies the local buffer that the data will be
copied from. If the parameter is a String type, then the data
will be written as a string of characters. For binary data, it is
recommended that this parameter specify a Byte array.
- An optional integer argument that specifies the amount of data
to be copied from the buffer. If this argument is omitted, the
entire contents of the buffer is transferred to the server.
- An argument reserved for future expansion. This argument should
always be omitted or specified as a numeric value of zero.
A value of zero is returned if the operation was successful,
otherwise a non-zero error code is returned which indicates the cause
of the failure.
The PutData method transfers data from a local buffer and
stores it on a file on the server. This method will cause the current
thread to block until the file transfer completes, a timeout occurs
or the transfer is canceled. During the transfer, the
OnProgress event will fire periodically, enabling the
application to update any user interface objects such as a progress
If the Buffer parameter is a String type, this method
presumes that it only contains text and will automatically convert it
from its native Unicode to ASCII. If the string contains binary data,
this process can corrupt the data and therefore should never be used.
To prevent this conversion and upload Unicode text to the server, you
should convert the string to a byte array using the StrConv
function and set the FileType property to ftpFileTypeBinary.
