An ASP Component to Send Arbitary Large File from Server to Client

#define RETURN { hr = E_FAIL; goto Cleanup; } // don't kill me! Look at last examples of MS // under http://www.microsoft.com/data/xml // You can't catch me! :-) STDMETHODIMP CGetFile::GetFile(VARIANT vFileName) { _variant_t vReturnBuffer; LPSAFEARRAY psaFile; HANDLE hFile; DWORD dwSizeOfFile; DWORD dwNumberOfBytesRead; BOOL bResult; unsigned char *pReturnBuffer = NULL; long k; HRESULT hr = S_OK; // Create file in this case only OPENS an existing file (or fails // if the file does not exist!) hFile = ::CreateFile( vFileName.bstrVal, // name of the file GENERIC_READ, // desired access FILE_SHARE_READ, // shared access NULL, // security attributes OPEN_EXISTING, // creation disposition - open only if existing! FILE_FLAG_SEQUENTIAL_SCAN, // flag attributes NULL ); if( hFile == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE ) { return E_FAIL; } dwSizeOfFile = ::GetFileSize( hFile, NULL ); if (dwSizeOfFile == 0xFFFFFFFF) { return E_FAIL; } try { pReturnBuffer = new unsigned char[dwSizeOfFile]; } catch( std::bad_alloc& ) { return E_FAIL; } // Get the binary content of the file bResult = ::ReadFile( hFile, pReturnBuffer, dwSizeOfFile, &dwNumberOfBytesRead, NULL ); if( FALSE == bResult ) { RETURN(E_FAIL); } psaFile = ::SafeArrayCreateVector( VT_UI1 /*unsigned char*/, 0, dwSizeOfFile ); if( !psaFile ) { RETURN(E_FAIL); } // Fill in the SAFEARRAY with the binary content of the file for( k = 0; k < (int) dwSizeOfFile; k++ ) { if( FAILED(::SafeArrayPutElement( psaFile, &k, &pReturnBuffer[k] )) ) { RETURN(E_FAIL); } } vReturnBuffer.vt = VT_ARRAY | VT_UI1; V_ARRAY(&vReturnBuffer) = psaFile; m_piResponse->BinaryWrite(vReturnBuffer); Cleanup: if( pReturnBuffer ) delete [] pReturnBuffer; return SUCCEEDED(hr) ? S_OK : E_FAIL; } As you see, the idea is simple: to read the binary content of the file, to pack it into safearray and then to pass as a parameter to IResponse::BinaryWrite(). The process is pretty straightforward

  • How do I register the IResponse class?

    Posted by Legacy on 09/06/2001 12:00am

    Apparently the IResponse object is intrinsic. The object is created and destroyed upon opening and closing each ASP page. An example of how to initialize this type of object can be found in the MSDN Library by searching for "Developing Active Server Components with ATL". It took about 2 hours of searching, and about 30 minutes of reading, but the document is very straight forward. I hope this helps anyone else that decides to use this function.

The realities of today makes data protection a must-have, as we live in a data-driven society -- the digital assets we create, share, and collaborate with others on must be managed and protected for many purposes.
