Instance Method

fileManager(_:shouldCopyItemAt:to:)

Asks the delegate if the file manager should copy the specified item to the new URL.

Declaration

optional func fileManager(_ fileManager: FileManager, shouldCopyItemAt srcURL: URL, to dstURL: URL) -> Bool

Parameters

fileManager

The file manager object that is attempting to copy the file or directory.

srcURL

The URL of the file or directory that the file manager wants to copy.

dstURL

The URL specifying the location for the copied file or directory.

Return Value

true if the item should be copied or false if the file manager should stop copying items associated with the current operation. If you do not implement this method, the file manager assumes a response of true.

Discussion

This method is called once for each item that needs to be copied. Thus, for a directory, this method is called once for the directory and once for each item in the directory.

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