Hi All

I have a requirement where files will get created by a desktop app in a users dropbox folder and I need to download these for processing. I tried to use the Dropbox Sync Library and this did indeed locate the files, and download them. However, once I have processed them, I need to delete them from Dropbox and have no idea how I can do this.

Can anyone shed any light?

You can use this code to delete a remote file:
B4X:
Sub DeleteFile(RemoteDir As String, RemoteFile As String)
   Dim r As Reflector
   r.Target = manager
   Dim pth As Object = r.RunMethod3("getPath", RemoteDir, "java.lang.String", _
     RemoteFile, "java.lang.String")
   r.Target = r.GetField("fileSystem")
   r.RunMethod4("delete", Array As Object(pth), Array As String("com.dropbox.sync.android.DbxPath"))
End Sub

Hi Erel,
Is possible a "make directory" with the same system are you described ?..
How will be it, please ????
And. a "remove directory" at DBX ????

Try this:
B4X:
Sub CreateFolder(RemoteDir As String)
   Dim r As Reflector
   r.Target = manager
   Dim pth As Object = r.RunMethod3("getPath", RemoteDir, "java.lang.String", _
     "", "java.lang.String")
   r.Target = r.GetField("fileSystem")
   r.RunMethod4("createFolder", Array As Object(pth), Array As String("com.dropbox.sync.android.DbxPath"))
End Sub

The Delete method posted above should be able to delete folders.

Hi again,
Your code "createFolder" is perfect, but to deleteFolder don't work.
Are there any workaround ?????

B4X:
Sub DeleteFolder(RemoteDir AsString)
    Dim MiR AsReflector
    MiR.Target = Manager
    Dim pth AsObject = MiR.RunMethod3("getPath", RemoteDir, "java.lang.String", "", "java.lang.String")
    MiR.Target = MiR.GetField("fileSystem")
    MiR.RunMethod4("deleteFolder", ArrayAsObject(pth), ArrayAsString("com.dropbox.sync.android.DbxPath"))
End Sub

java.lang.NoSuchMethodException: deleteFolder [class com.dropbox.sync.android.DbxPath]
