#1475 closed Patch

New cmdline args so it doesn't hang

Reported by: elsapo Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Other
Keywords: Cc: elsapo, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


Added three new command line arguments:


close main dialog (as soon as transfer completes)


do not close main dialog (default)

  • overwrite overwrite existing files without prompt

The "-close" is so commandline invocation doesn't leave
filezilla.exe running forever, especially if run from a
batch file not in the interactive desktop (where noone
will ever see it).

The "-noclose" is just something you can add to the end
of a command line when debugging, to cancel an earlier
"-close" on the command line (or getting added
elsewhere by a variable).

The "-overwrite" is to avoid the dialog hanging at the
prompt for overwrite/nooverwrite -- this avoids having
to set a choice in the user profile which would lock in
the user and every script invocation run under that
user account -- that is, this allows making the choice
relevant for the particular command line invocation.

I've attached my original & modified MainFrm.cpp, so you can
either diff them visually, or generate a patch with whatever
context settings you like. Let me know if you would like
another format instead.

Go here

for a binary exe version (along with source).

(Its too large to upload here.)

I'm not sure that IsQueueEmpty is the right method for my
test (when it is ok to close the dialog).

I really need to know if there are any active items left in
the queue, discounting any errors hanging out in the list
view (which is what IsQueueEmpty looks at).
