Returned value

This function always returns 0.


For this function, the server is the computer or device that hosts the downloadable project files (e.g., screens) for your thin clients. It might be different from the project runtime server (a.k.a. the data server), depending on how you deploy your project. For more information, see Configuring a Web Solution.

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. For more information, see Preferences tab.

Tip: Before you call this function, you can use the function IsAppChangedOnServer to check the project files that are already on the client. If they match the files on the server, you might choose not to call this function.
