Instance Method

fileManager:shouldProceedAfterError:copyingItemAtPath:toPath:

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

Declaration

- (BOOL)fileManager:(NSFileManager *)fileManager shouldProceedAfterError:(NSError *)error copyingItemAtPath:(NSString *)srcPath toPath:(NSString *)dstPath;

Parameters

fileManager

The NSFileManager object that sent this message.

error

The error that occurred during the attempt to copy.

srcPath

The path or a file or directory that fileManager is attempting to copy.

dstPath

The path or a file or directory to which fileManager is attempting to copy.

Return Value

YES if the operation should proceed or NO if it should be aborted. If you do not implement this method, the file manager assumes a response of NO.

Discussion

The file manager calls this method when there is a problem copying the item to the specified location. If you return YES, the file manager continues copying any other items and ignores the error.

This method performs the same task as the fileManager:shouldProceedAfterError:copyingItemAtURL:toURL: method, which is preferred over this method in macOS 10.6 and later.
