Hi @Ryan Green | MONA. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- A RealtimeComponent is initialized and connected to the network when the Realtime instance it is associated with is connected. You can check this by using the connected property of the Realtime instance. This property returns true if the Realtime instance is connected and its views are initialized. Here is an example of how you can check this:
if (realtime.connected) {
// The Realtime instance is connected and its views are initialized.
}
if (realtime.connected) {
// The Realtime instance is connected and its views are initialized.
}
In addition, the Realtime class provides an event didConnectToRoom that is fired when Realtime is connected to a room and all realtime prefabs and realtime views in the scene have been successfully connected to the datastore. You can subscribe to this event to get notified when the connection is established. Here is an example of how you can use this event:
_realtime.didConnectToRoom += DidConnectToRoom;

private void DidConnectToRoom(Realtime realtime) {
// The Realtime instance is connected to a room.
}
_realtime.didConnectToRoom += DidConnectToRoom;

private void DidConnectToRoom(Realtime realtime) {
// The Realtime instance is connected to a room.
}
Remember that if you're dealing with a RealtimeView that exists in a scene file, you'll need to wait until realtime.connected == true, or the didConnectToRoom event has fired. RealtimeView uses Start() internally to register with Realtime, and it’s possible your start method ran before RealtimeView.Start().
