Remarks

Managing errors

fCopyFile generates an error in the following cases:
  • the file to copy does not exist,
  • the file to copy is locked,
  • is invalid,
  • <Path of copied file> is an empty string,
  • <Path of file to copy> and <Path of copied file> are identical.

Creating directories during the copy

  • If one of the directories of the destination path does not exist, it is automatically created.
  • AndroidAndroid Widget iPhone/iPadUniversal Windows 10 App If the source file corresponds to all the files found in a directory (for example, C:\Temp\*.*), the frRecursive constant must be used to create the subdirectories in the destination (and to copy their content).
Remark: To copy directories, you also have the ability to use fCopyDir.
Windows Mobile

Equivalence

The operating mode of fCopyFile is equivalent to the operating mode of ceCopyFile.
The only difference is:
  • fCopyFile handles the files found on the Pocket PC from a WINDEV Mobile application.
  • ceCopyFile handles the files found on the Pocket PC from a WINDEV application.
