This function returns the same value that is sent to the project tag configured in the Status Tag box, in the security system server settings. However, this function returns the value immediately, while the project tag configured in the Status Tag box is only updated periodically (according to Synchonization Period for Distributed–Client or Retry Interval for Domain (LDAP)). As such, there may be times when this function’s returned value and the value of the project tag do not match.
- When a user logs on to the project. Specifically, if the user logs on via the built-in LogOn dialog (invoked by either calling the LogOn function or selecting the LogOn menu command in the Viewer), then the status is updated before the dialog is displayed.
- When the authentication server is offline and the retry interval (configured in the security system server settings) has elapsed.
- When the security system settings are opened in the development application.
Whenever the status is updated, the new value is immediately sent to the project tag configured in the Status Tag box.
