Chek for net connection

Question asked by nielsprins on Jan 26, 2012

I have a sollution with data on a Filemaker Server Adv. and the user interface on the local computer.


I want to check for net connection to the server and close the solution if no connection exits.

In my startup script I opening a small database file on the server. If the script can open that file, it continues to open the whole solution, otherwise it close down.


My problem is that FileMaker is opening the datafiles in "Manage > External Data Sources" before it runs the startup script.

When it don't find the files it gives an error followed by a "Open Missing File" dialog.

Any way I can override this behavior?


I have thought of a opener file , but I would like to have only the interface file and nothing more...


Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
