Hello Graham,

We cannot implement every possible variation. The component would become huge and difficult to maintain. I think this kind of change could easily be done in a derived component: create your own class inheriting from ICS component and add the required properties method and event. Change that can be done, if ever required, is something which would permit the implementation in a derived component, such as making a method virtual, adding setter/getter and similar.

As we are in the mode for changes to the FTP client. One thing that I have
always done, which makes my life much easier is to add a "DownloadToString"
and "LocalStringName" property. At the moment the FTP client can download
data to a file or to a stream. In my application it is much more convenient
to download to a String.

DownloadToString : boolean
LocalStringName : String

Set DownloadToString = true, execute some command, LIST RETR etc. and get
the result from LocalStringName

Can this be added? I can always send you what I have done although it's not
exactly difficult to implement.

Regards
 Graham

If you think new methods are needed, you need <...>
Hmm, quite complicated. Okay, I'll do it some time later.

Not complicated atall, it's exactly what Francois, Arno and myself have to
do when making additions and fixes to ICS.
