multisession client tracking

Postby schoissi » Fri Jun 14, 2019 7:55 pm

in a wd ultimate multisession scenario,
how can i identify which computer has connected and which session key it got assigned.

what's the syntax to control elements only of a selected client, by key or ip?

Hi Roman,

you use Group Keys for that. ... ues_wd.htm

Have you looked at the explanations in the manual. Does that help you.
It gets pretty complex fast.

Can you be more specific?

hi Daniel,
i got he answer from support regarding controlling elements of a connected client.

for example, send client to another page (based on its IP):
Window1.GroupItems("").PageName = "Page1"
(info: the session settings are set to IP,
i guess i can also always replace the IP with the key?)

for the client tracking thing... :
i have let's say 3 ipads connected, IP thru .103
i need to know when ipad .101 connects and what key it get's assigned (assuming with every re-connect, it gets a new key...)
that key goes into a variable (for example: ipad1_key)

i have a scenario where a user (for example: ipad1) enters a page, sets a variable called stage1_active to true,
therefore other clients cannot enter this page anymore, until ipad1 leaves the page (to prevent multiple user accessing the same page...)
unfortunately, sometimes the presenter run away with the ipad :roll: ,
it looses connection and the page is locked forever...
i want to track when ipad1 connects, when it goes to page stage1, it will set variable stage1_active to ipad1.
now, when ipad1 looses connection, while being on stage1, when it re-connects, it should automatically be forwarded to the page stage1, instead of the default (or set by browser) page...
