I solve this by adding a function to the main datamodule called
IsDatabaseConnected. It returns true or false based on whether the database
is connected.at any time. I use the BeforeOpen method of any data components
to test this condition. I can also use it disable any buttons, forms, etc.
that require the database to be connected. In some situations, I can then
prompt the user to log in, if need be.
