WebDAV Class

Properties   Methods   Events   Configuration Settings   Errors  

The WebDAV Class implements an easy-to-use interface to the Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning protocol (WebDAV).

Syntax

ipworks.Webdav

Remarks

The WebDAV Class supports both plaintext and SSL/TLS connections. When connecting over SSL/TLS the SSLServerAuthentication event allows you to check the server identity and other security attributes. The SSLStatus event provides information about the SSL handshake. Additional SSL related settings are also supported via the Config method.

The class allows remote management of resource properties and collection, including creation, deletion, listing, copying, and moving. Resource locking is also supported.

The ListDirectory and FindProperties methods will list the properties of a resource collection or resource, and a DirList or ResourceProperties event will be fired for each matching resource.

Depth is used to determine which resources or properties are retrieved from the server. A depth of ResourceOnly will return only the resource associated with ResourceURI, or its properties. A depth of Infinity will return all resources contained within hierarchy, or their collective properties.

Note: Some servers (such as IIS 7.5) may not support a depth of Infinity by default and may return a HTTP 403 Forbidden response.

A number of operations can be performed on resources by using the various methods of the class. Please refer to the individual methods for more information.

WebDAV allows non-standard properties to be specified through XML namespaces.

The namespaces are provided in the Namespaces collection, which is filled automatically when retrieving DAV responses, but must be filled manually when requesting non-standard properties.
