Instance Method

fileManager(_:shouldProceedAfterError:movingItemAt:to:)

Asks the delegate if the move operation should continue after an error occurs while moving the item at the specified URL.

Declaration

optional func fileManager(_ fileManager: FileManager, shouldProceedAfterError error: Error, movingItemAt srcURL: URL, to dstURL: URL) -> Bool

Parameters

fileManager

The file manager object that attempted to move the item.

error

The error that occurred while trying to move the item in srcURL.

srcURL

The URL of the file or directory that the file manager tried to move.

dstURL

The URL of the intended destination for the item in srcURL.

Return Value

true if the operation should proceed or false if it should be aborted. If you do not implement this method, the file manager assumes a response of false.

Discussion

The file manager calls this method when there is a problem moving the item to the specified location. If you return true, the file manager proceeds to remove the item from its current location as if the move operation had completed successfully.

This method performs the same task as the fileManager(_:shouldProceedAfterError:movingItemAtPath:toPath:) method and is preferred over that method in macOS 10.6 and later.
