CopyFileEx problems

I'm trying to set up a std. procedure which will copy a file from one location to another. It HAS to be with CopyFileEx (don't ask me why :-).

I'm having some problems setting up the right types for the various variables, especially the LPVOID ones. If somebody could post an example of how to use the CopyFileEx xall in combination with the CopyProgressRoutine I would really appreciate it

take care

CopyFileEx is AFAIK only supported on NT.

found a couple of exapmples that may help:

 type
   TProgressForm = class(TForm)
     AbortButton: TButton;
     ProgressBar: TProgressBar;
     procedure AbortButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
   private
     { Private declarations }
   public
     { Public declarations }
     FCancel: BOOL;
   end;
   // form has fsStayOnTop formstyle!
 
 implementation
 
 {$R *.DFM}
 
 procedure TProgressForm.AbortButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
 begin
   FCancel := True;
 end;
 
 // Note: could use int64 instead of COMP, but that would make this D4 specific Function
 CopyCallback( TotalFileSize, TotalBytesTransferred,
                       StreamSize, StreamBytesTransferred: COMP;                      
 dwStreamNumber, dwCallbackReason : DWORD;                       hSourceFile,
 hDestinationFile: THandle;
                       progressform: TProgressForm ): DWORD; stdcall; Var
   newpos: Integer;
 Begin
   Result := PROCESS_CONTINUE;
   If dwCallbackReason = CALLBACK_CHUNK_FINISHED Then Begin
     newpos := Round( TotalBytesTransferred / TotalFileSize * 100 );     With
 progressform.Progressbar Do
       if newpos <> Position then
         Position := newpos;
     Application.ProcessMessages;    
   End; { If }
 End; { CopyCallback }
 
 Function DoFilecopy( Const source, target: String ): Boolean;
 Var
   progressform: TProgressForm;
 Begin
   progressform := TProgressform.Create;
   try
     progressform.Show;
     Application.ProcessMessages;
     Result := CopyFileEx(
                 PChar( source ),
                 PChar( target ),
                 @CopyCallback,
                 Pointer( progressform ),
                 @progressform.FCancel,
                 0 );
 finally
   progressform.Hide;
   progressform.free;
 end;
 end; { DoFileCopy }







another example:

type
   LARGE_INTEGER = record
     LowPart : DWORD;
     HighPart : LongInt;
   end;
 
 function CopyProgressRoutine(TotalFileSize : LARGE_INTEGER;
   TotalBytesTransferred : LARGE_INTEGER; StreamSize : LARGE_INTEGER;   StreamBytesTransferred
 : LARGE_INTEGER; StreamNumber : DWORD;
   CallbackReason : DWORD; SourceFile : THandle; DestinationFile : THandle;   Data : pointer):
 DWORD; stdcall;
 begin
   Result := PROGRESS_CONTINUE;
 
   if CallbackReason = CALLBACK_CHUNK_FINISHED then begin
     Form1.Label1.Caption := Format('%f%% complete,',
                                   [(TotalBytesTransferred.LowPart / TotalFileSize.LowPart) *
 100]);
     Form1.Refresh;
   end;
 end;
 
 procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
 var
   Cancel : BOOL;
 begin
   Cancel := FALSE;
 
   if not CopyFileEx('C:\WINNT\IE4BAK.DAT',
                   'C:\TEMP\IE4BAK.DAT',
                   @CopyProgressRoutine,
                   nil,
                   @Cancel,
                   COPY_FILE_FAIL_IF_EXISTS)  then
     ShowMessage(SysErrorMessage(GetLastError));
 
 end;

Excellent, allthough you forgot to write FUNCTION before the copycallback declaration ;-)
