A : The RaidenFTPD FTP server can handle file level ownership which can not be found easily on other FTPD products for Windows , however it was not easy to get these information externally by 3rd party scripts , and now we are glad to offer this RaidenModeX Active-X control to FTP scripts authors for FREE !
Step1 : download the RaidenModeX Active-X control from here
Step2 : Installation
Extract ModeX.zip into a dir (better be your project dir with a fixed location) , and register the component , type
in the command prompt
Step3 : Open your project , insert this active-x into your project
Example for Microsoft Visual C++
1.Open your project file
2.Pick any dialog resource and click the right mouse button->insert activex control
3.Find RaidenModeX Control and click OK
4.Under the same dialog resource , clicl right mouse button and launch Class wizard
5.Click the member variables tab , find the control id IDC_RAIDENMODEXCTRL1 , and click Add variable button
6.Now the MSVC will ask you if you want to generate a C++ Wrapper class for it , click YES
7.When the Add Member Variable dialog box appears , enter a proper name for it , such as m_modex
8.Now goto the .CPP source file and include the generated RaidenModeX.h header file
9.Supposing you have exported this control name as m_modex (well this is your job)
10.If you have file called xxx.zip , under e:\temp , and it was uploaded via RaidenFTPD system , there should be a .raidenftpd.acl file under e:\temp
11.To get the information of this file , simply use the component's method 'SetFilePath'
12.After you call this method , the following properties become available
13.To set the information of a file/dir , simply use the component's method 'Chmod'
14.Note to the Visual Basic Users
1. Attach OCX as a component and place on form.
2. Initiate SetFilePath(path\file) method.
3. If returns TRUE, the owner, group, complete, free, mode, and errormsg properties are already updated (no need to initiate another GETXXX() method).
Calling that second methods were what I was confused about. It seems there is no need in VB to do that since the properties are auto filled if TRUE. Thanks.
