    Install OnTimer Script Question

      Install OnTimer Script Question

      Post

           Dear Forum Members,

           I created an install OnTimer based script that would periodically  find new records and send an email if new records had been created since the previous scan. This seems to work fine. However, it is never clear to me when I am working with the database if the script is actively running. Is there a way to visually indicate if the script is running in the active layout?

           Thank you

               You'd have to work at it a bit.

               Your script could change a value in a global field or a global variable and (if needed) refresh the window to update it's display. Then you'd just put the field or variable on your layout or use a conditional format to create a visual change in the appearance of your layout.

               This assumes that the timer is running in your session and not another user's.
