Since a number of functions are not compatible with CWP or WebDirect, it would be nice to know if a User were connecting to the Server through one of those methods. Is there a function what will return that information?
Thanks. The info I was getting on a web search of these terms was different from that provided by the Filemaker Help Center. I appreciate your assistance.
Get( ApplicationVersion ) and Get( SystemPlatform ) will provide the info you need.
See FileMaker “help” for details.

Morgan - Thanks for the advice.
I had looked previously at Get (SystemPlatform) but that seems to indicate the type of device connected (Mac, PC, iPad, etc) and not it's method of connection. However, the Get(ApplicationVersion) I had not explored. Among the items it returns are
Web (version) for FileMaker Web Client
Server (version) for FileMaker Web Server
I'm assuming a return of "Web Publishing Engine (version)" would be returned on for a CWP connection or for WebDirect That is to say, either form of connection will give the same return. Is that right or do I need to do more research?
Get( SystemPlatform ) = 4 for webdirect
