Syntax

Finding out the different times associated with the last file viewed Hide the details

<Result> = FTPTime([<Type of Time>])
<Result>: Character string
  • Time (in HHMMSS format) associated with the last file accessed by one of the following FTP functions: FTPAttribute, FTPDate, FTPSize, FTPListFile.
  • Empty string ("") if an error occurred. To find out the error details, use ErrorInfo associated with the errMessage constant.
AndroidAndroid Widget JavaPHP Modification time of last file viewed.
Unlike the syntax 2, no request is sent to the server. Therefore, this syntax is recommended whenever possible.
<Type of Time>: Optional constant
Indicates the time to use:
FTPAccessftpAccessTime of last access to the file.
FTPCreationftpCreationTime of file creation.
FTPmodification
(Default value)
ftpModification
(Default value)
Time of last modification made to the file.

Remarks

Time-out

By default, all the FTP functions fail if the FTP server does not respond within 20 seconds. This time-out can be modified by FTPConnect when connecting to the FTP server.

Internet browser

FTPTime requires Internet Explorer version 3 or later.
If a problem occurs, we recommend that you run a test with the browser by directly passing a link such as "ftp://server/...". If a problem occurs with Internet Explorer (with a UNIX server for example), use FTPCommand directly.

Rights of users

Only a user who has read rights on the FTP server can get information about the files or the directories found on an FTP server. In most cases, the read rights are granted to the "anonymous" users.

Relative and absolute path

The notions of relative path and absolute path are very important in an FTP application.
  • A path starting with a slash is considered as being an absolute path: it is the path in relation to the root of the FTP server (parameter specific to the server).
    Example: /ad/user/JULIA
  • A path not starting with a slash is considered as being a relative path, which means a path given in relation to the current directory. This current directory can be returned or modified by FTPCurrentDir.
When connecting to an FTP site, the initial directory (the "home directory" of the user) is not necessarily found at the root of the FTP server. Therefore, we recommend that you use relative paths.
