listFolder: returns hasmore in a directory with only 2 files

Explorer | Level 4

Hi, I am experiensing this issue very often

it happens in the following scenario:

you have let's say 150 files

149 appear with simple listFolder

and one is not listed

then move all the 149 files and only leave the one that was not listed

and add one more

when you call 

listFolder: again it will only return 1 file

and hasMore will be TRUE

Any ideas how I can force list folder to always return all files in the directory?

(objC api)

Kind regards.

Has more  & listFolderContinue

returns the new item(s)

 

but I was wondering how do I "reset it" if you will

Hi @Kyri,

Actually you can't. The call is asynchronous and the bechaviour can't be predicted or forced. You should always check for 'has_more' flag set and get in loop until flag gets unset.

Hope this helps.

Здравко is correct, you can't force or predict this. You need to always check hasMore and call back if needed. For reference, you can find the corresponding documentation for the Objective-C SDK in particular under listFolder and listFolderContinue.
