    mainform
  2. Specify CSV File:

    This application accepts CSV file as input. The CSV file should have at least one column that should have URLs of the files that need to be downloaded. To specify the CSV file, click the file browser button (the button that has three dots) and specify the CSV file.
  3. Specify URL Column:

    The CSV file can have multiple columns but this app is interested in one column i.e. the URL. Click Load File button (on the right side of the three dots button). It will load the CSV file into the application and will display all columns in the drop down list. Now select the URL column from the drop down list.
  4. Specify the Output Location:

    This is the directory where the downloaded files will be stored. The existing file will be overwritten if Overwrite Existing File is checked. To specify the output directory, click the Browse button and select a directory.

    Note:

    Make sure that your CSV file does not contain duplicate file names. Otherwise previous downloaded file will be overwritten if Overwrite Existing File is checked, or it will be ignored (error will be dislayed in the Errors section) if Overwrite Existing File is unchecked.
  5. Start Download:

    Click the Start button to start downloading files. Progress of the current file as well as over all progress will be displayed as shown below.

    It will display errors as they occur. It will also display the number of successful files as well as failed files. Once all files are downloaded, a confirmation message will be displayed as shown below.

  7. Export Failed Files List:

    If you need to export the list of files that were failed, click Export Error Files List button to export the list. If no file was failed, then it will display an error message.

Once again, thank you so much for purchasing this app. As I said at the beginning, I'd be glad to help you if you have any questions relating to this app. No guarantees, but I'll do my best to assist. If you have a more general question relating to the apps on CodeCanyon, you might consider visiting the forums and asking your question in the "Item Discussion" section.
