logout scripts

Hello

I have a Filemaker question concerning executing scripts when closing a file under File Options -> 'When closing this file': if I have a script configured to run when a file closes and the user does not expressly logout under normal circumstances (i.e.:) the user's session is closed due to Filemaker timeout or the user's PC shuts down, etc.), will the logout script still execute in these circumstances?

Interesting Question....

so I have a local database that is not shared and did a test.

I made a test script that will set a test field to my name..... put that test script in the file option>When closing this file...

It worked. It worked when I quit the filemaker application (using a mac)

I change the set field part of the script to Get(CurrentDate) and kept filemaker up and did a reboot.

It worked again.

So I would say do a test for your scenario on a pc. You can also do the test if you are using a server on a test database.

If I have a chance to do some testing, I will let you know what my results are.

But for the most part, I would say yes, the logout script executes.....

I tried quitting the Filemaker appl myself and it worked for me as well on Windows. I did not try the re-boot, but will.

I believe our server has a time out function and I'm concerned about it dropping users from the server side.
