This is an optional method that forces a shutdown of a specific Web thin client instance. For example:


shuts down the thin client instance known as AcuThinAX, if it is running.

AcuShutdownAx terminates the COBOL application invoked by the Web thin client. In general, you need not use it because the Web thin client either terminates as a result of the COBOL program execution, or because the browser either displays another URL or closes. If, for some reason, you want to force shutdown of the Web thin client instance, this method is available.

Parameter Type    Input    Output
() [ ] [ ]

The shutdown action assumes that the COBOL application is currently in idle mode. If the Web thin client is not idle, the browser hangs, waiting for the application to idle. This method takes no parameters, and there is no return value for this function.

AcuShutdownAx implicitly terminates the Web thin client when you terminate the COBOL application you are running. So, when you execute this method, the Web thin client is terminated, closing files properly, even though data that was not stored permanently is lost.
