Test Internet Connection

Hi there,

I am wondering if there is anyway to test for a connection to the internet. I am working on a script, where if internet access is available, will go to a website, otherwise it will go to a FM layout. I know about "Get(SystemIPAddress)" but I am going to be on a LAN, so I would get a system address as long as I am connected to the router (not necessarily the internet). Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank,

I don't believe there is a Get function or error generated when there is no internet connection. However, you could use a Web Viewer object and the Set Web Viewer script step to test for an internet connection. Just create a web viewer, name it with Object Info and create a script that resets it to a web page that is very reliable. If there is no internet connection, the following formula will return an empty result:

GetLayoutObjectAttribute("Web Viewer"; "content")
