Data change notification in multi user environment
Posted on 1998-08-23
I am using Codebase as the database engine for a multi user (and single user) Windows application. In a multi user system, if two users have a data file open and a change is made by one user, how can I get notify the other running application on the other user's PC that a change has been made to the datafile. I need this functionality to so that the screen/view can be updated to reflect the changes made by the other user.
ie: Windows explorer automatically updates window contents if an item (directory, shortcut etc..) is added to a directory via Network Neighbourhood on a remote PC, the Windows Explorer screen will be automatically updated to
show this new item. This is the functionality I am after.
I have (very) limited multi user programming experience so any help would be greatly appreciated.
