Chilkat.Ftp2 ftp = new Chilkat.Ftp2();

// Any string unlocks the component for the 1st 30-days.
success = ftp.UnlockComponent("Anything for 30-day trial");
if (success != true) {
MessageBox.Show(ftp.LastErrorText);
return;
}

ftp.Hostname = "www.example-code.com";
ftp.Username = "****";
ftp.Password = "****";

// Connect and login to the FTP server.
success = ftp.Connect();
if (success != true) {
MessageBox.Show(ftp.LastErrorText);
return;
}

// The ListPattern property is our directory listing filter.
// The default value is "*", which includes everything.
textBox1.Text += ftp.ListPattern + "\r\n";

// To get file and sub-directory information, simply
// loop from 0 to ftp.NumFilesAndDirs - 1
int i;
int n;
n = ftp.NumFilesAndDirs;
if (n < 0) {
MessageBox.Show(ftp.LastErrorText);
return;

// Display the filename
textBox1.Text += ftp.GetFilename(i) + "\r\n";

// Display the file size (in bytes)
textBox1.Text += ftp.GetSize(i) + "\r\n";

// Is this a sub-directory?

textBox1.Text += ".. this is a sub-directory" + "\r\n";
