No activities detected (for x time), then do this...

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Could someone point an example to me where I could learn how to time-control a db file? What I wanted to do is...

1) A user opens up the db, do some editing...

2) Left the DB open for x-number of minutes...

-> What I want to accomplish is to have the timer to start counting when there is no activity on the system (ex: mouse movement for example).

I was looking at pause/resume script but the best I could do is to assign a value and that's it. It starts ticking regardless whether theres a system activity or not... I wanted to leave a message on the screen informing the user that the db has been disconnected because of lack of activities.

Thanks.

Server will disconnect a User when idle for x minutes. Look at your Accounts & Privileges.

There are some complex rules governing the auto-disconnect when idle process.

But you can set the time in the Server Admin Tool, and then set whether it applies in the Define Privilege Set for the file.

When the file is launched, the FMP client will then control the auto-disconnect. Assuming the option is checked in the SAT tool this is a client-side process.
