Get file size prior to start downloading it

See original GitHub issue

I’ve started using the library and gone through the simple implementation, although it doesn’t tell about implementation of getting size of file before actually downloading it.

What i tried so far is

String downloadLink = VALID_FILE_URL;
String filePath = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory() + File.separator + Environment.DIRECTORY_DOWNLOADS + File.separator + "file.mp4";

but it’s returning 0.00 every time i execute the above code.

OK. I think I know, now. If you want to get TotalBytes through FileDownloader instead of standalone API.

Though I don’t recommend, but you can get totalBytes in FileDownloadListener#connected, it is better than in FileDownloadListener#progress which you did.

can’t use FileDownloader.getImpl().create(downloadLink).setPath(filePath).getSmallFileTotalBytes() to get so far bytes of a running task.

You can get so far bytes of a running task by fellow ways:

  1. in methods of FileDownloadListener which attached to the task object.
  2. use FileDownloader#getSoFar through the task Id.
