    v1.0 (4 January 2000)
    • Initial public release.


    To use CFTPTransferDlg in your project simply include FTPTransferDlg.cpp/.h from the test application in your application and #include "FTPTransferDlg.h" in whichever files you want to use the class in. You should also copy over all the IDS_FTPTRANSFER_.. string resources, the IDD_FTPTRANSFER dialog resource and the IDR_FTPTRANSFER_ANIMATION "avi" resource. To bring up the dialog to upload / download a specific file, just use some code like the following:

    CFTPTransferDlg dlg;
    dlg.m_sServer = _T("");
    dlg.m_sRemoteFile = _T("/somefile.ext");
    dlg.m_sLocal = _T("c:\\somfile.ext");
    dlg.m_bDownload = TRUE;
    dlg.m_bBinary = TRUE;
    if (dlg.DoModal() == IDOK)
       AfxMessageBox("File was downloaded successfully");

    You should also have a look at the CFTPDlg::OnDownload() and CFTPDlg::OnUpload() code in the sample application.

    GeneralText is one long line PinmemberJack_pt11-Dec-04 15:37 
    When I write a text file to my hard disk, the lines are separated by \n and it displays as one would expect. But when I upload this file to my host, the text is displayed in one long line. It I add \r\n instead of just \n at the end of each line, the effect is reversed - my hard disk file is one long line and the remote file is displayed on separate lines. I've tried using both binary and ascii upload modes. This probably is not a problem with this project but since it only shows up when using it I thought it would be worth asking. Is there a way to have one file work for both situations? Currently I'm creating two files with the only difference being the \r in one of them.
