This collection element property indicates the status of the connection to the host. The value is True if the host is connected; otherwise, it is False. CommStarted is a Boolean data type and is read-only. The following example shows the CommStarted property.

Dim autECLConnList as Object
Set autECLConnList = CreateObject("ZIEWin.autECLConnList")
' This code segment checks to see if communications are connected
' The results are sent to a text box called CommConn.
If Not autECLConnList(1).CommStarted Then
    CommConn.Text = "No"
    CommConn.Text = "Yes"
End If
