FTP upload in BackgroundWorker

Posted 17 December 2013 - 05:51 PM

Hey, i need a little help with FTP uploading with backgroundWorker, more precisely if someone wants to stop uploading!

My upload code in BackgroundWoker:


                'Create FTP Request
                Dim myRequest As FtpWebRequest = DirectCast(WebRequest.Create("ftp://server" + "/" + "public_html/ftpfile" + "/" + fileName), FtpWebRequest)

                'Update properties
                myRequest.Credentials = New NetworkCredential("username", "password")
                myRequest.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.UploadFile

                'Read the file
                Dim myFile As Byte() = File.ReadAllBytes(Pathh)

                'Upload the file
                Dim myStream As Stream = myRequest.GetRequestStream()

                myStream.Write(myFile, 0, myFile.Length)



            Catch srvrerror As Exception

                MsgBox("An error occurred whilst attempting to contact the server.", MsgBoxStyle.Critical Or MsgBoxStyle.OkOnly, "App - Server Error")


My question is! When i'm trying to CancelAsync() in the middle of file upload i got my exception error, but when i leave uploading alone until it completes everything works fine. How can i make when somebody press 'Cancel' to stop uploading.

My Cancel button code:

        If uploadworker.IsBusy Then
            If uploadworker.WorkerSupportsCancellation Then
            End If
        End If

I know that i need to add this code somewhere but i don't know where, or?:


            If uploadworker.CancellationPending Then
                e.Cancel = True
                Exit Do
            End If

I'm using this code above for my software update downloading, and works fine but i don't know where i need to add this for file uploading.

And yes, my BackgroundWorker supports cancellation.

Thank you..

You can try disposing the backgroundworker, but I think it wouldn't works.
It's because upload it's a single call I don't think you can get access and put a condition inside a while or a for.

Try to make the variable myStream global and check if you can stop it in another function!
