Hi Rick. Long time no see. I think what you're looking for is "@XFUNCT". This is a system variable, similar to @EFUNCT, that tells PRO-IV what function to execute any time a user quits from PRO-IV (e.g., ALT-F4 or pressing the "X" in the upper right corner). I think using this, perhaps in combination with some of the other methods discussed above, should work.

This feature was added by PRO-IV (at our request) 2 or 3 years ago. HTH. Cheers, Mark Dexter

I am having posting problems when it comes to pasting in lines.
Responses have to be like 2 line minimums. Emails in here seem
to work fine, though. I'll try it again:

At another site I worked at, it seems like we did a $XFR on LOGOFF and then removed it.
Then, a "LOGOFF" alias was created to go to a custom function, "C_SYOFF" (which was
just an update function with an exit of @LFUNCT = 'OFF')
Next, "LOGON" had some kind of security on it; perhaps a @PFUNCT check to prevent
users from accessing it outside of the logon process.

The issue arose when a 'DEV' PRORUNTYPE user logged into Chess/Glovia, then when
"finished", typed "LOGOFF" (which really just did a LOGON). This left the unix session
still open, and when the next operator logged in, they had 'DEV' for their PRORUNTYPE
and could get into SL menus, etc. By forcing the OFF mode, the user was phsycially
logged off the unix machine.
