Demonstrates the case where the ProgressMonSize property is required to monitor the progress of FTP downloads.
When a file is downloaded, most FTP servers will indicate the file size in the intermediate "150" response. For example:
RETR hamlet.xml 150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for hamlet.xml (279658 Bytes). 226 Transfer complete.
However, some FTP servers do not provide the file size. For example, from a FileZilla server:
RETR files.txt 150 Connection accepted 226 Transfer OK
If the file size is not present, the component does not know how many bytes are forthcoming, and therefore it is not possible to monitor percentage completion progress -- unless the application provides a little help by setting the ProgressMonSize property just prior to calling GetFile.
The application should set the ProgressMonSize to the size indicated by GetSizeByName as demonstrated in this example.
