Open a file on the server for reading.
object.OpenFile( FileName )
- A string which specifies the name of the file being opened on
the server. The client must have the appropriate access rights to
open the file for reading or an error will be returned. It may be
required that the UserName and Password properties be
set to authenticate the client session so that access to the
resource is permitted.
A value of zero is returned if the operation was successful,
otherwise a non-zero error code is returned which indicates the cause
of the failure.
The OpenFile method uses the GET command to access the
file. If this method is successful, the client should then use the
Read method to read the contents of the file from the server.
Once all of the data has been read, the CloseFile method should
be called to close the file and complete the operation. If the file
being opened is not an HTML or text document, then it's recommended
that you read the data into a byte array.
This method should not be used to post data to a script or other
executable resource on the server. If you wish to post data to a
script, then the PostData method should be used instead.
