Hi guys,
   before to start the user processing on the map in a web application, i.e. loading panels, features, connecting events, etc..., I would like to check if the mapService used within the application is available and working. What I want is to set up an error handling procedure.
How to do this?Is there a specific function or attribute or request in the API to do this?

Thank you very much.
