    I'm using PhotonNetwork.CloseConnection to kick players from rooms. I want to show a popup when a client gets kicked from a room. How can I determine this?

    I also close the room when the master client leaves. I use the same function, CloseConnection. I also need to determine which one occurs in the game. How can I do that?

    This is the simplified version of the code:

    Code (CSharp):
    1.     public void Leave()
    2.     {
    3.         // Check if the master client is leaving
    4.         if (PhotonNetwork.IsMasterClient)
    5.         {
    6.             PhotonNetwork.CurrentRoom.IsOpen = false;
    7.             PhotonNetwork.CurrentRoom.IsVisible = false;
    9.             // Kick the other players from the room
    10.             Player[] otherPlayers = PhotonNetwork.PlayerListOthers;
    11.             for (int i = 0; i < otherPlayers.Length; ++i)
    12.             {
    13.                 PhotonNetwork.CloseConnection(otherPlayers[i]);
    14.                 // TODO: I need to show a popup message saying the master client left to the other clients
    15.             }
    16.         }
    18.         PhotonNetwork.LeaveRoom();
    19.     }
    21.     public void Kick(Player kick)
    22.     {
    23.         PhotonNetwork.CloseConnection(kick);
    24.         // TODO: I need to show a popup message saying you're kicked from the room to the client
    25.     }

    The way it's implemented right now, nobody else knows if someone was kicked.

    If you just want to make everyone leave when the Master Client leaves, then it's better make your clients do that as soon as the Master Client leaves.
    Instead of sending a kick to each player, you could also just send your own, custom event to the room (by default, everyone else) and implement a disconnect. CloseConnection(player) is not truly executed on the server either.

    You can probably hide and close the room earlier. Do it when the game starts (unless that doesn't apply to your game).
