Example
This example demonstrates using the FTP control to retrieve multiple files using the FTP GET Command.
public void getMultipleFiles()
{
    //Retrieve a list of txt files to transfer.
    List<ListEntry> filesToGet = ftp1.ListDirectoryTree("MyTextFiles", "*.txt", true);

    //Tailor the list to not include a specific file.
    foreach (ListEntry entry in filesToGet)
    {
        if (entry.Name == "not_me.txt")
        {
            filesToGet.Remove(entry);
            break;
        }
    }

    //Retrieve the files.
    string workingDirectory = ftp1.GetDirectory();
    ftp1.Get(filesToGet, workingDirectory + "/MyTextFiles", myLocalDirectory, Synchronize.Off);
}
Public Sub getMultipleFiles()
    'Retrieve a list of txt files to transfer.
    Dim filesToGet As List(Of ListEntry) = ftp1.ListDirectoryTree("MyTextFiles", "*.txt", True)

    'Tailor the list to not include a specific file.
    For Each entry As ListEntry In filesToGet
        If entry.Name = "not_me.txt" Then
            filesToGet.Remove(entry)
            Exit For
        End If
    Next entry

    'Retrieve the files.
    Dim workingDirectory As String = ftp1.GetDirectory()
    ftp1.Get(filesToGet, workingDirectory & "/MyTextFiles", myLocalDirectory, Synchronize.Off)
End Sub
