UploadedFile Methods
Sub AllowAccess (Account As String, Flags As Long)
Adds an allowance access control entity (ACE) corresponding to the specified NT Account to this file's Access Control List (ACL). Flags must be a valid combination of Access Type values defined in the file AspUpload.inc such as GENERIC_ALL. Other valid flag combinations include:

Read (RX):GENERIC_READ + FILE_GENERIC_EXECUTE
Change(RWXD): GENERIC_READ + GENERIC_WRITE + FILE_GENERIC_EXECUTE + DELETE
Full Control (All): GENERIC_ALL

Usage:

File.AllowAccess "jsmith", GENERIC_ALL

Relevant Chapters: 6

Sub Copy (Path As String, Optional Overwrite)
Copies this file to a location specified by Path which must be a fully qualified path.

If Overwrite is set to True or omitted, overwrites an existing file. If Overwrite is set to False and a file at Path already exists, the method will fail.

Usage:

File.Copy "c:\newpath\" & File.FileName

Relevant Chapters: 3

Sub CopyVirtual (VirtualPath As String, Optional Overwrite)
Same as Copy, but expects a virtual rather than physical path. If the system admin disables the Copy method, users are forced to use CopyVirtual which confines them to their own home directory and subdirectories.

Usage:

File.CopyVirtual "/uploads/" & File.FileName

Relevant Chapters: 10

Sub Delete
Deletes the file.

Usage:

File.Delete

Relevant Chapters: 3

Sub DenyAccess (Account As String, Flags As Long)
Adds a denial access control entity (ACE) corresponding to the specified NT Account to this file's Access Control List (ACL). Flags must be set to GENERIC_READ.

Usage:

File.DenyAccess "jsmith", GENERIC_ALL

Relevant Chapters: 6

Sub ExtractFileName
Obsolete. Supported only for backwards compatibility. Use FileName instead.

Usage:

Response.Write File.ExtractFileName

Relevant Chapters: N/A

Sub ExtractFolderName
Obsolete. Supported only for backwards compatibility. Use Folder instead.

Usage:

Response.Write File.ExtractFolderName

Relevant Chapters: N/A

Sub Move (Path As String)
Copies this file to a location specified by Path which must be a fully qualified path. If a file at Path already exists, the method will fail.

Side effect: If the method succeeds, the File.Path property changes to the new path.

Usage:

File.Move "c:\newpath\" & File.FileName

Relevant Chapters: 3

Sub MoveVirtual (VirtualPath As String)
Same as Move, but expects a virtual rather than physical path.

Usage:

File.MoveVirtual "/uploads/" & File.FileName

Relevant Chapters: 10

Sub RevokeAllowance (Account As String)
Removes the corresponding allowance ACE from this file's ACL.

Usage:

File.RevokeAllowance "jsmith"

Relevant Chapters: 6

Sub RevokeDenial (Account As String)
Removes the corresponding denial ACE from this file's ACL.

Usage:

File.RevokeDenial "jsmith"

Relevant Chapters: 6

Sub SaveAs (Path As String)
Saves the file under the name specified by Path. If UploadManager.OverwriteFiles is set to False and a file specified by Path already exists, this method will generate a unique file name by appending a numeric suffix such as (1), (2), etc. to the file name.

This method is especially useful when uploading to memory, as this is the only way to save a memory file to disk.

Side effect: if the method succeeds, the UploadedFile.Path property will be changed to Path (or a unique file name derived from it).

Usage:

File.SaveAs "c:\path\" & File.FileName

Relevant Chapters: 4

Sub SaveAsVirtual (VirtualPath As String)
Same as SaveAs, but expects a virtual rather than physical path. If the system admin disables SaveAs, users will be forced to use SaveAsVirtual which confines them to their home directory and subdirectories.

Usage:

File.SaveAsVirtual "/path/" & File.FileName

Relevant Chapters: 10

Sub SetOwner (Account As String, Flags As Long)
Sets the NTFS owner of this file to the NT Account specified.

Usage:

File.SetOwner "jsmith"

Relevant Chapters: 6

Sub ToDatabase (Connect As String, SQL As String, Optional MSAccessHeaders)
Saves the file specified to the database as a BLOB using ODBC.

Connect is an ODBC connection string which may use a system DSN, or be DSNless, for example:

"DSN=mydb;UID=sa;PWD=xxxxx"

or

"Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=c:\path\db.mdb"

However Connect cannot be an ADO-style connection string, i.e. it cannot reference an OLD DB provider, as this method is based on ODBC.

SQL is an SQL INSERT or UPDATE statement which uses the sign ? as a placeholder for the file being saved in the database, for example:

"INSERT INTO mytable(image_blob, path) values(?, 'c:\path\file.ext')"

or

"UPDATE mytable SET imageblob = ? WHERE id = 15"

The MSAccessHeaders parameter may only be used with MS Access databases. If set to True, AspUpload will attempt to save the file not as a Blob but as an OLE Object so that the document can be invoked directly from MS Access by double-clicking on the table field. This feature will only work with file types for which OLE document servers exist, such as MS Word documents (*.doc), Excel workbooks (*.xls), bitmaps (*.bmp), etc. For other types of files (such as *.gif) the MSAccessHeaders parameter will be ignored and assumed False. Note that you will not be able to download a document saved as an OLE Object directly to the browser.

Usage:

File.ToDatabase "DSN=mydb;UID=sa;PWD=xxxx;", "insert into myimages(image_blob) values(?)"
