I have created code using the the Simple SFTP Client that lists the contents of a remote directory and then downloads the files (I am using TElSimpleSFTPClient.DownloadStream). I would like to safely remove these files from the remote server once I am done downloading.
I guess I can check for errors or check the files downloaded against the files listed, then delete. However, I was wondering if there is an event that I can subscribe to that would indicate if the file transfer is complete and successful? Are there any code samples that illustrate this?

Thank you for contacting us.

There is not such event but if any operation completes without exceptions and TElSimpleSFTPClient.OnError is not fired then you can interpret this as a successful operation.

In TElSimpleSFTPClient all methods are synchronous and when execution returns from that methods, those methods are done (i.e. the operation is completed successfully). Errors are either thrown as exceptions or reported via OnError event (depending on error type - there's a reason for error handling to work this way).

Sincerely yours
