I need to download all files from a specific directory onto my local machine.  I am using tnmftp's download function but is there a way to tell it to download all files from a directory?

Drop an NMFTP component on the main form and make sure you have entered
the correct FTP, port and login properties.

There is no disconnection in the code below so if you want to disconnect
from the server you have to do this somewhere yourself.

Add the code below to your project
----


function FixPath(path : string) : string;
begin
 if IsPathDelimiter(Path,length(path)) then result := copy(path,1,length(path)-1) else result := path;
end;

function AttrDirectory(str : string) : boolean;
begin
 str := trim(str);
 result := (upcase(str[1]) = 'D');
end;

procedure TForm1.GetAllFiles(remotedir, localdir : string);
var lp0 : integer;
    localfile : string;
begin
 if NMFTP1.connected = false then NMFTP1.connect;
  if NMFTP1.connected then begin
   if DirectoryExists(FixPath(localdir)) then begin
    NMFTP1.ChangeDir(remotedir);
    NMFTP1.ParseList := true;
    NMFTP1.List;
    for lp0 := 0 to NMFTP1.FTPDirectoryList.name.Count-1 do begin
     if not AttrDirectory(NMFTP1.FTPDirectoryList.Attribute.Strings[lp0]) then begin
      LocalFile := FixPath(localdir)+'\'+NMFTP1.FTPDirectoryList.name.Strings[lp0];
      FFtp.Download(NMFTP1.FTPDirectoryList.name.Strings[lp0],LocalFile);
     end;
    end:
   end;
  end;
 end;
end;

oppss...
I forgot to change the name in the download loop...

The name should be NMFTP1 not Fftp like in the example...
