(Xojo Plugin) Directory Existence Check

How to test if a directory exists on an FTP server.

A good way to check to see if a directory already exists is to try to "cd" to that remote directory by calling ChangeRemoteDir. If it succeeds, then the directory exists. If not, then it does not exist. An alternative method is to set the ListPattern = "*" and then iterate over the files/directories, looking for the directory.

Dim ftp As New Chilkat.Ftp2

Dim success As Boolean

//  Any string unlocks the component for the 1st 30-days.
success = ftp.UnlockComponent("Anything for 30-day trial")
If (success <> True) Then
    System.DebugLog(ftp.LastErrorText)
    Return
End If

ftp.Hostname = "ftp.yourftpserver.com"
ftp.Username = "***"
ftp.Password = "***"

//  Connect and login to the FTP server.
success = ftp.Connect()
If (success <> True) Then
    System.DebugLog(ftp.LastErrorText)
    Return
End If

//  Does the "temp" directory exist?
Dim dirExists As Boolean
dirExists = ftp.ChangeRemoteDir("/temp")
If (dirExists = True) Then
    System.DebugLog("Yes, the temp directory exists.")
    //   Yes, it exists. Restore the current remote dir:
    success = ftp.ChangeRemoteDir("..")
    If (success <> True) Then
        System.DebugLog(ftp.LastErrorText)
        Return
    End If

End If

//  Alternatively, you may set the ListPattern = "*" and
//   look for the directory:
ftp.ListPattern = "*"

Dim i As Int32
Dim n As Int32
n = ftp.GetDirCount()
If (n < 0) Then
    //  Failed to get directory listing based on ListPattern
    System.DebugLog(ftp.LastErrorText)

If (n > 0) Then
    For i = 0 To n - 1
