Syntax
<Result> = zipExtractFileList(<Archive> , <List of paths> [, <Destination> [, <Options> [, <WLanguage procedure> [, <Progress bar management>]]]])
<Result>: Integer
  • 0 if the files have been extracted,
  • An error code (value greater than 0) otherwise. For more details on these error codes, see the Remarks.
<Archive>: Character string (with quotes) or zipArchive variable
Name of archive to use.
This name can correspond to:
<List of paths>: Character string (with quotes)
List of stored paths of files that will be extracted from the archive. The different paths are separated by CR characters (Carriage Return).
Performs an exact-match search on each path of files found in the archive.
<Destination>: Optional character string or constant
Destination path of extracted files:
  • Optional character string: The files are extracted into the specified path to which is added the tree structure of the file (the disk is not stored). The specified path is created if it does not exist.
  • Optional constant:
    zipNoneExtraction into the current directory without restoring the tree structure of the files (if it was stored).
    zipDriveExtraction:
    • to the initial location of the files if it was stored and if the drive exists.
    • while restoring the tree structure of the files on the current drive if the drive or the stored directory does not exist.
    • in the current directory if only the name and extension of the files have been stored.
    Linux This constant is not available. The directories have no root.
    Archives in 7z format: This constant and zipDirectory will have the same effect.
    zipDirectory
    (Default value)
    Extraction into the current directory without restoring the tree structure of the files (if it was stored).
<Options>: Optional constant
Configure the extraction (if <Destinations> corresponds to a character string):
zipOverwriteDuring the extraction, the existing read-only files are automatically overwritten by the extracted files.
<WLanguage procedure>: Optional character string
Versions 19 and later
Name of the WLanguage procedure that will be called if an error occurs when extracting files. This procedure has the following format:
PROCEDURE ProcedureName (<Error Code>, <File Name>)
where:
  • <Error code> is an integer corresponding to the code of the error that occurred when extracting the file.
  • <File name> is a character string that contains the path of the file processed by zipExtractFileList.
The procedure can return one of the following constants:
zipCancelCancels the extraction of files from the archive.
zipIgnoreIgnores the file in error.
zipRetryRetries the file extraction.
WEBDEV - Server code This procedure must be a server procedure.
New in version 19
Name of the WLanguage procedure that will be called if an error occurs when extracting files. This procedure has the following format:
PROCEDURE ProcedureName (<Error Code>, <File Name>)
where:
  • <Error code> is an integer corresponding to the code of the error that occurred when extracting the file.
  • <File name> is a character string that contains the path of the file processed by zipExtractFileList.
The procedure can return one of the following constants:
zipCancelCancels the extraction of files from the archive.
zipIgnoreIgnores the file in error.
zipRetryRetries the file extraction.

WEBDEV - Server code This procedure must be a server procedure.
<Progress bar management>: Optional character string (with or without quotes)
Versions 21 and later
Mode for managing the progress bar. This parameter can correspond to:
  • the name of a WLanguage procedure. This procedure has the following format:
    <Procedure name> (<Current file>, <Global progress percentage>,
    <File progress percentage >)

    where:
    • <Current file> corresponds to the name of the file currently processed.
    • <Global progress percentage> corresponds to the progress percentage of the extraction of files from the archive.
    • <File progress percentage> corresponds to the progress percentage of the file being extracted from the archive.
If you are using an archive:
  • in TAR or TGZ (TAR.GZ) format, the progress bar is refreshed at the end of the extraction of each file.
  • in CAB and RAR format, the progress bar is refreshed at the end of the extraction of each file.
  • in 7z format, only <Global progress percentage> is specified. <File progress percentage> will have the same value.

Remarks

Error codes

The following error codes are returned:
  • 1: The path passed in parameter does not exist.
  • 2: Access denied: the user has no sufficient rights.
  • 3: The archive is corrupted.
  • 4: The path does not exist in the archive.
  • 6: The files of the sub-archives are not arranged in order (when extracting from a multi-part archive).
  • 21: The specified password is not correct.
The message corresponding to the error code is returned by zipMsgError.
Remarks:
  • Linux Only the archives in ZIP, TAR and TGZ (TAR.GZ) format are available.

Extracted file

The extracted files are not deleted from the archive. To delete one file or all the files from the archive, use zipDeleteFile or zipDeleteAll.

Extraction and password

If the file is not encrypted and if zipPassword was used:
  • Archive in WDZ format: The file is still extracted.
  • Archive in ZIP format: An error occurs.

Stored path

The table below presents the paths stored in the archive according to:
  • the access path to the file,
  • the stored path section.
The current directory is: "C:\Temp".
zipAddFileFile locationzipNonezipDirectoryzipDrive
zipAddFile("Archi",
"File.txt")
C:\Temp\File.txtFile.txtFile.txtFile.txt
zipAddFile("Archi",
"Data\File.txt")
C:\Temp\Data\File.txtFile.txtData\File.txtData\File.txt
zipAddFile("Archi",
"D:\Data\File.txt")
D:\Data\File.txtFile.txtData\File.txtD:\Data\File.txt


Remark: If the zipDrive constant is used:
  • the WDZ format stores the full path of the file (including the drive letter).
  • the ZIP format does not store the drive letter.
  • the 7z format stores the directories only.
