Open Channel Detection

Last Modified: November 16, 2017

The OpenChansExist and OpenChans attributes/properties allow you to check for open or shorted channels.

OpenChansExist returns a Boolean of true if one or more channels were disconnected since the last time the attribute/property was queried, and OpenChans returns the virtual channel names of the channels that were disconnected.
