Working FTP Client created with NeoBook 5 and NeoBookFM/FTP.

Files may be managed transparently in the background with scripting or interactively using a visible Windows Explorer style file browser component. File browsers can be used to display the contents of local drives or remote FTP servers. Multiple browsers can be opened simultaneously, allowing files to be dragged from one location to another. Files can be dragged between local and remote locations (upload/download) or between two remote locations (site-to-site). You can even drag and drop of files to and from other Windows applications.

Files may be viewed in icon (small, large, extra large), tile, list, detail or thumbnail modes. Files can be filtered by name/extension and sorted by name, type, date or size. There is even an action to copy or upload embedded files directly from within a compiled NeoBook exe.

NeoBookFM/FTP offers advanced NeoBook authors with tools to override or customize many of the plug-in's core features. In addition to colors and fonts, special optional subroutines can be created to override built-in confirmation and progress dialogs.
