Application Development with PAS for OpenEdge : Programming ABL Client Applications : Handling conditions and return values : Raising the STOP condition
Raising the STOP condition
An ABL client can raise a STOP condition within a remote procedure when a user presses the STOP key. Raising the STOP condition while a remote procedure is executing causes the STOP condition to be propagated to the appropriate server session where a STOP condition is then raised.
A STOP condition sent to the remote procedure does not necessarily mean that the remote procedure terminates immediately. ON STOP handlers within the remote procedure might prevent the procedure from actually being terminated. For information on how a remote procedure handles a STOP condition received from the client, see the information on condition handling in Programming the Progress Application Server for OpenEdge.
