Copying/Moving files only after full write.
Posted on 1999-06-24
Hello all. Please help me with this. I need a quick solution to copying/moving files within VB 5.0 but ONLY after it has fully been written to the directory. I currently have an application that uses an infinite loop to search several directories for files and there is no problem with moving a file into them since it really just moves an OS pointer, but copying a large file does cause problem. Is there a relatively easy solution to this problem in VB 5.0, say... a function to retrieve status, then pass that to a copy function, or does it require full api writing, include wait/change notifications?
