This function has no parameters.
|-1||The software is licensed.|
|0||The license grace period has expired.
In most cases, this value will never actually be returned because if the grace period has expired, then the project has stopped.
The license grace period is relevent only if the software (i.e., the development application and/or the project runtime) is configured to get its license from a license server and it has somehow lost its connection to that server. For more information, see About License Server.
By default, the license grace period is 60 minutes. If you need to change the period, then please contact your InduSoft Web Studio software vendor.
Also, this function may be called by a Screen Script or Command animation on a specific thin client, but the returned value applies to the entire project runtime. Thin clients do not have their own licenses. Instead, the project runtime is licensed to support a number of thin clients, and the thin client on which the function is executed is included in that number.
