I have an Excel sheet that updates market data on a regular basis if Eikon is connected. I can determine the connection status with the synchronization manager and then request the update (my Eikon is not connected all day, as I don't need it that intensively and the program is quite ressource-heavy).
I plan to get rid of the instable Excel file and build a .NET application for this. However, I do not manage to receive the connection status of Eikon from the .NET API. As soon as i want to check the connection status with Initialize(), the API opens EIKON.
Is there any other way to determine if the program is connected without automatically starting EIKON every time? Can I use the synchronization manager also in .NET?
