ClrObject static method invocation error.

Hi All,

I got a requirement to zip two files and the folder path will be in the network with read write permission.

I am able to generate files in the same folder. But when I try to zip these files using the below code, I get an error message saying “ClrObject static method invocation error.” from the line ( zip = System.IO.Packaging.Package::Open(_zipFileName, System.IO.FileMode::Create);) Code uesd is given below.

// This method will put all files in _FileNameList to a zip file named _zipFileName
// if success, it will return _zipFileName, otherwise, return a empty string
static str zipFileGen(str _zipFileName, container _fileNameList)
int bytesRead, bufSize=40960, i, p;
str sourceFileName, destFileName;
System.IO.Packaging.Package zip; // the zip file
System.IO.Packaging.PackagePart part; // the file add to zip
System.Uri uri; // the file’s path and name in the zip
System.IO.FileStream fileStream;
System.IO.Stream zipFileStream;
System.Byte[] buf = new System.BytebufSize;
str errorMsg;
System.Exception ex;
// delete zip file if already exists
new InteropPermission(InteropKind::ClrInterop).assert();

if (WinApi::fileExists(_zipFileName))
// new FileIOPermission(_zipFileName, #io_write).demand();
// open a new document (zip file)
zip = System.IO.Packaging.Package::Open(_zipFileName, System.IO.FileMode::Create);

for (i=1; i<=conLen(_fileNameList); i++)
// get the name of the source file that needs to be added to zip file
sourceFileName = conPeek(_fileNameList, i);

// Define the file name and path in the zip
p = strScan(sourceFileName, @’’, strLen(sourceFileName), -strLen(sourceFileName));
destFileName = @"." + subStr(sourceFileName, p+1, strLen(sourceFileName)-p);
uri = System.IO.Packaging.PackUriHelper::CreatePartUri(new System.Uri(destFileName, System.UriKind::Relative));

// Add a Document part to the Package
part = zip.CreatePart(uri, ‘text/plain’, System.IO.Packaging.CompressionOption::Maximum);
zipFileStream = part.GetStream();

// Copy the file’s content to the Document Part
fileStream = new System.IO.FileStream(sourceFileName, System.IO.FileMode::Open, System.IO.FileAccess::Read);
bytesRead = fileStream.Read(buf,0,bufSize);
while ( bytesRead>0 );

// close all streams used

// close the document (zip file)
zip = null;

return _zipFileName;
ex = CLRInterop::getLastException().GetBaseException();
/* catch
errorMsg = WinApi::formatMessage(WinApi::getLastError());

if (zip!=null) zip.Close();
return ‘’;

Please help me.

Thanks in advance

Is it NAV/ navision related issue?

:slight_smile: This is Ax related issue. I will repost it
