Command Method  

Specify a command to execute on a FTP server.


object.Command( Command )


A string value which specifies the command that will be executed on the server.

Return Value

A value of zero is returned if the method succeeds. Otherwise, a non-zero error code is returned which indicates the cause of the failure.


Invoking the Command method causes the specified command to be executed on the server. This allows the application to take advantage of extended commands that are not directly available through the control. The ResultCode property should be checked to determine if the command was successful or not.


Dim nError As Long

' Report current status of the server
nError = FileTransfer1.Command("STAT")

If nError > 0 Then
    MsgBox "Command error: " & nError
    MsgBox FileTransfer1.ResultCode & ": " & FileTransfer1.ResultString
End If
