Will be implemented in future version. Eddan is working on it.

I try to collect very related other feature requests here as well:
[ 542746 ] Disconnect when transfer complete (closed and referred to this)

comment:3 by Alexander Schuch, 16 years ago

[ 1517081 ] Notify in any way when transfer queue empties (closed and referred to this):

  • show a message
  • play a sound
  • execute a program
  • send a winpopup msg

[ 542746 ] Disconnect when transfer complete (closed and referred to this):

  • logout user

Maybe this should be kept as specialised as possible, that is, only add the things which are really unique to a finished transfer queue, like: disconnect, logout user, shutdown computer, stand-by computer.

The other suggestions should be implemented using a notification system, like the one KDE has where any combination of notifications can be triggered by an event, like: sound, message box, flashing icon/program in taskbar, running a given program, etc.

Maybe have "run program" as well as option. This can be used to run a script to disconnect mapped networks, or to play a sound, if needed.

[ 794308 ] shutdown on complete (closed and referred to this):

  • close FileZilla
  • restart failed transfers

comment:7 by Eirik, 16 years ago

Patch [ 1785490 ] implements some of the wanted features of this RFE:

  • Close FileZilla
  • Run program/command
  • Disconnect from server
  • Shutdown system (win only)
  • Reboot system (win only)

Shutdown and reboot are win only because you need superuser rights to do it under Unix; we don't want to encourage people to run FZ as root. On other systems, shutdown and reboot are not currently implemented in wxWidgets, so this can't be done atm.

[ 794308 ] mentions "restart failed transfers". Failed transfers requires user attention, we cannot just try to restart them. This won't be implemented.
[ 1517081 ] mentions "play a sound". With "run command" you can do this manually. I might implement this in a more elegant way later.

So the only thing missing for this RFE to be closed is "send a popupmsg"/"show a message" which I hopefully will remember to do soon.

Previously mentioned patch also includes "show message" and "play sound" now.
