I am trying to send some ofFiles via udp using ofxPocoNetwork
before sending anything I am trying to simply convert an ofFile to an ofBuffer and then back to ofFile again.
shouldn’t this be working?
out.copyTo(ofSystemSaveDialog("","").getPath(),false);//THIS DOESN'T (copyTo(): source file does not exist)
I haven’t tested latest branch yet…
I’m not sure about
out.copyTo()…Looking at the docs for the constructor, it looks like you can pass in a filename as a string, or an existing
ofFile object, but not a buffer. Since the
ofFile out object doesn’t point to a filename, it makes sense (to me at least) that you can’t copy it somewhere.
Instead, since you’ve already got the contents in an
ofBuffer you could use
yes I see,
this works great: (tested it on osx)
ofBuffer fileAsBuffer = ofBufferFromFile(ofSystemLoadDialog("",false).getPath(), true);
what is the maximum size limit this addon can handle for sending a buffer without corrupting it?
also how can I send an information string with the message?
so that I know what extension is the file I am sending?
something like the address() in the osc addon
hm… same code doesn’t work under Windows
Not sure if it is a bug in our implementation of OPENFILENAMEW and lpstrFilter in ofSystemSaveDialog
or a bug in ofBuffer in the ofBufferToFile functions
