InfoConnect for Unisys
Attachmate.Reflection.Emulation.OpenSystems Namespace / IFileTransfer Interface / WRQReceiveFile Method
Specifies a local file. This string can be empty or can contain just drive and path information, in which case the host file name is used to generate a local file name. This string cannot contain wildcard characters.
Specifies a host file. This string can contain wildcard characters (to transfer multiple files). The wildcard characters must be appropriate for the host system. You can also append "switches" to the host file name to modify the way the file is handled during the transfer.
TransferTypeOption.ASCII: Specifies ASCII file transfer. InfoConnect applies the ASCII File Translation options (as specified on the Translation tab in the File Transfer Setup dialog box) to the data in the file as it is transferred. TransferTypeOption.Binary Specifies binary file transfer. Data in the file is not translated as it is transferred. TransferTypeOption.Image Host to host Image/Labels transfer (rcLabels is a valid synonym).
Specifies what to do if the file already exists on the host. The possible values are: DestinationFileExistsOption.AskUser Prompts the user to specify what should be done. DestinationFileExistsOption.Cancel Stops the transfer. DestinationFileExistsOption.Update Performs the transfer only if the host file is newer than the PC file. DestinationFileExistsOption.Delete Deletes (overwrites) the existing file. DestinationFileExistsOption.Append Appends the contents of the host file to the existing PC file. DestinationFileExistsOption.Rename Renames the file being transferred. The existing file retains the original name. The last three characters of the file being transferred are changed to 001. If such a file already exists, the file's name is changed to 002, and so on up to 999. DestinationFileExistsOption.Skip Skips the file (the transfer does not take place, but no error results).
Specifies a date and time. Only host files created or modified before the specified date and time are transferred.
Specifies a date and time. Only host files created or modified after the specified date and time are transferred.
Specifies one or more files to be excluded from a wildcard transfer. The file names can include wildcards.
