UltraEdit - Waiting for file to close

Hi,

I have a problem with Winscp and ultraedit.
When i double click a file from winscp
witch opens with ultraedit (my default edtior).
Winscp will display a message saying
"Waiting for a document to close".
When i close the file in ultraedit without closing ultraedit program
then the waiting message in winscp doesnt go away, not until i close the program.
Is the only way to find out if the file has been closed to see if the program is running?

Best Regards,
Eirkur

It is the only reliable way I know about.

I may potentially check if the file is locked by another application. But it may take while before the other application (text processor) starts up and locks the file. How long should WinSCP wait? Also some applications unlocks the file immediattely after they load it.

If anyone knows better way, I'm certainly interested.
