class SNNTPStartTransferEventParams(object): @property def direction() -> int: ... # In class SNNTP: @property def on_start_transfer() -> Callable[[SNNTPStartTransferEventParams], None]: ... @on_start_transfer.setter def on_start_transfer(event_hook: Callable[[SNNTPStartTransferEventParams], None]) -> None: ...
The purpose of the on_start_transfer event is twofold: during article retrieval it fires when the article body starts transferring from the news_server to the local host, and during article posting it fires before the article body is sent to the news_server.
If a file is attached to the article_text via the attached_file property, then on_start_transfer fires again when the file starts transferring. Please go to the description of the attached_file property for more information.
The Direction parameter shows whether the client (0) or the server (1) is sending the data.
