If the option Enforce Web functionality equivalence is selected in the project settings, this function cannot be called from Global Procedures or Script worksheets. This is because the function is meaningful only when it is executed on stations that display project screens; it might cause unexpected behavior if it is called from background tasks that are executed on the project runtime server.
