Data type




Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) which character is to indicate the beginning of a file transfer frame.

If WRQFastFileTransfer is True, Reflection attempts to do fast file transfers. If a fast file transfer takes place, the WRQStartCharacter property is ignored.

This property is relevant only for transfers that use the WRQ/Reflection protocol.


The default is the start-of-text character, which can be represented as Chr$(rcSTX).

The value can be any control character with an ASCII value of less than 32—that is, Chr$(0) through Chr$(31)—or the open-parenthesis character. (It is recommended that you not set this property to Chr$(rcNUL), Chr$(rcCR), Chr$(rcDC1), Chr$(rcDC3), or Chr$(rcEM).
