FTPParameter (Function)
In french: FTPParamètre
Modifies the behavior of standard FTP functions.
// Enable the native implementation of FTP
FTPParameter(ftpParameterMode, 1)
// Enable the Windows implementation ("wininet") of FTP
FTPParameter(ftpParameterMode, 0)
FTPParameter(<Option> , <Option value>)
<Option>: Integer constant
Option to define:
ftpParameterModeUsed to choose the operating mode of FTP.
  • If <Option value> is set to 0, the functions for FTP management use the "wininet" module of Windows except for the secure protocols (FTPIS, FTPES and SFTP). This mode corresponds to the default operating mode of FTP functions.
  • If <Option value> is set to 1, the functions for FTP management use a native implementation of FTP that is independent of Windows, with UTF8 support.
    Caution: In this mode, FTPCommand is not supported. This mode is systematically used for the secure protocols (FTPIS, FTPES and SFTP).
<Option value>: Integer
New value of option.
The FTPxxx functions of WLanguage use by default the FTP functions of the Windows API (WININET.DLL). In Windows 8.1, these APIs do no longer return the expected results:
  • transfer not completed,
  • "unable to modify the directory to.".
While waiting for the standard FTP functions to be restored by Windows Update, the behavior of WLanguage FTPxxx functions can be modified so that they are no longer based on the FTP functions of Windows API. To do so, insert the following call in the FTP transfer process, before the existing call to FTPConnect:
FTPParameter(ftpParameterMode, 1)
Remark: FTPParameter is applied to all the WLanguage FTPxxx functions, except for FTPCommand. If this one was used, it can be replaced by FTPSend or FTPGet according to the case.
