Back to FileSystem Class Summary

Windows, Mac OSX, Linux

mdm.FileSystem.copyFile(copyFrom:String, copyTo:String):Void

copyFrom:String - File path of file to be copied
copyTo:String - File path of file to be created/overwritten

Boolean - status of operation

Copies the specified file to the specified location. When error occurs during operation (for whatever reason) the false is returned by method. For example it could be returned if invalid path was passed as one of arguments

Please note that return type of that method is changed compared to version Zinc 3.0

Example Code
var copied:Boolean = mdm.FileSystem.copyFile(fromPath, toPath);
mdm.FileSystem.copyFile("c:\\myFile.txt", "c:\\Copy of myFile.txt");

Since there's no "move" file command, how can I determine when a file has finished copying so I can delete the original file from its original path? It would be nice to have some events triggered here, but I certainly know this may be difficult.
