Properties

CreateTime
Function ComCreateTime Returns DateTime
This property is deprecated. It will be removed in a future version.

The file creation date and time. This property is only supported by servers running SFTP v4 or later.

top
CreateTimeStr
Function ComCreateTimeStr Returns String

The same as the CreateTime property, but returns the date/time as an RFC822 formatted string.

top
Filename
Function ComFilename Returns String

The filename (or directory name, symbolic link name, etc.)

top
FileType
Function ComFileType Returns String

One of the following values:

  regular
  directory
  symLink
  special
  unknown
  socket
  charDevice
  blockDevice
  fifo

top
Gid
Function ComGid Returns Integer

The integer Group ID of the file.

top
Group
Function ComGroup Returns String

The group ownership of the file. This property is only supported by servers running SFTP v4 or later.

top
IsAppendOnly
Function ComIsAppendOnly Returns Boolean

If True, this file may only be appended. This property is only supported by servers running SFTP v6 or later.

top
IsArchive
Function ComIsArchive Returns Boolean

If True, the file should be included in backup / archive operations. This property is only supported by servers running SFTP v6 or later.

top
IsCaseInsensitive
Function ComIsCaseInsensitive Returns Boolean

This attribute applies only to directories. This attribute means that files and directory names in this directory should be compared without regard to case. This property is only supported by servers running SFTP v6 or later.

top
IsCompressed
Function ComIsCompressed Returns Boolean

The file is stored on disk using file-system level transparent compression. This flag does not affect the file data on the wire. This property is only supported by servers running SFTP v6 or later.

top
IsDirectory
Function ComIsDirectory Returns Boolean

If True, this is a directory.

top
IsEncrypted
Function ComIsEncrypted Returns Boolean

The file is stored on disk using file-system level transparent encryption. This flag does not affect the file data on the wire (for either READ or WRITE requests.) This property is only supported by servers running SFTP v6 or later.

top
IsHidden
Function ComIsHidden Returns Boolean

If True, the file SHOULD NOT be shown to user unless specifically requested.

top
IsImmutable
Function ComIsImmutable Returns Boolean

The file cannot be deleted or renamed, no hard link can be created to this file, and no data can be written to the file.

This bit implies a stronger level of protection than ReadOnly, the file permission mask or ACLs. Typically even the superuser cannot write to immutable files, and only the superuser can set or remove the bit.

This property is only supported by servers running SFTP v6 or later.

top
IsReadOnly
Function ComIsReadOnly Returns Boolean

If True, the file is read-only. This property is only supported by servers running SFTP v6 or later.

top
IsRegular
Function ComIsRegular Returns Boolean

True if this is a normal file (not a directory or any of the other non-file types).

top
IsSparse
Function ComIsSparse Returns Boolean

The file is a sparse file; this means that file blocks that have not been explicitly written are not stored on disk. For example, if a client writes a buffer at 10 M from the beginning of the file, the blocks between the previous EOF marker and the 10 M offset would not consume physical disk space.

Some servers may store all files as sparse files, in which case this bit will be unconditionally set. Other servers may not have a mechanism for determining if the file is sparse, and so the file MAY be stored sparse even if this flag is not set.

This property is only supported by servers running SFTP v6 or later.

top
IsSymLink
Function ComIsSymLink Returns Boolean

True if this is a symbolic link.

top
IsSync
Function ComIsSync Returns Boolean

When the file is modified, the changes are written synchronously to the disk. This property is only supported by servers running SFTP v6 or later.

top
IsSystem
Function ComIsSystem Returns Boolean

True if the file is part of the operating system. This property is only supported by servers running SFTP v6 or later.

top
LastAccessTime
Function ComLastAccessTime Returns DateTime
This property is deprecated. It will be removed in a future version.

The last-access date and time.

top
LastAccessTimeStr
Function ComLastAccessTimeStr Returns String

The same as the LastAccessTime property, but returns the date/time as an RFC822 formatted string.

top
LastMethodSuccess
Function ComLastMethodSuccess Returns Boolean
Procedure Set ComLastMethodSuccess Boolean value

Indicate whether the last method call succeeded or failed. A value of True indicates success, a value of False indicates failure. This property is automatically set for method calls. It is not modified by property accesses. The property is automatically set to indicate success for the following types of method calls:

  • Any method that returns a string.
  • Any method returning a Chilkat object, binary bytes, or a date/time.
  • Any method returning a standard boolean status value where success = True and failure = False.
  • Any method returning an integer where failure is defined by a return value less than zero.

Note: Methods that do not fit the above requirements will always set this property equal to True. For example, a method that returns no value (such as a "void" in C++) will technically always succeed.

top
LastModifiedTime
Function ComLastModifiedTime Returns DateTime
This property is deprecated. It will be removed in a future version.

The last-modified date and time.

top
LastModifiedTimeStr
Function ComLastModifiedTimeStr Returns String

The same as the LastModifiedTime property, but returns the date/time as an RFC822 formatted string.

top
Owner
Function ComOwner Returns String

The owner of the file. This property is only supported by servers running SFTP v4 or later.

top
Permissions
Function ComPermissions Returns Integer

The 'permissions' field contains a bit mask specifying file permissions. These permissions correspond to the st_mode field of the stat structure defined by POSIX [IEEE.1003-1.1996].

This protocol uses the following values for the symbols declared in the POSIX standard.

       S_IRUSR  0000400 (octal)
       S_IWUSR  0000200
       S_IXUSR  0000100
       S_IRGRP  0000040
       S_IWGRP  0000020
       S_IXGRP  0000010
       S_IROTH  0000004
       S_IWOTH  0000002
       S_IXOTH  0000001
       S_ISUID  0004000
       S_ISGID  0002000
       S_ISVTX  0001000

top
Size32
Function ComSize32 Returns Integer

Size of the file in bytes. If the size is too large for 32-bits, a -1 is returned.

top
SizeStr
Function ComSizeStr Returns String

Same as Size64, but the number is returned as a string in decimal format.

top
Uid
Function ComUid Returns Integer

The integer User ID of the file.
