Timed Out

Question asked by mmccarty on May 19, 2009


Timed Out




 I set up FileMaker server to time out of a session when the user has been away for more than 20 minutes. When the user returns and tries to click a button, the screen changes to the standard internet error screen that says can't find page. My boss thinks that this is confusing and that people won't know that they timed out of the database.


I created a simple layout that says "Your session timed out". I want to run a script which sends the user to this page right before the session is timed out. That way when they return they are told the database has timed out (if they click buttons and get internet error message after that I don't care). I tried connecting the script to "on close" in File Options but that didn't work.


Any ideas?
