How to read the status of a task in QEMC in macro

Hi community,

I'd like to start the load of a qlik doc A from an open qlik doc B.

I know I can do that through Shell but I was thinking about the possibility to do that without using it and also to introduce a control, such as: if A is running now, don't activate the reload, else activate it.

Does somebody know if there's way to read the status of a task in QEMC? and then activate it, better without WScript.Shell?

Thanks to you all, who are going to answer.

To open a qvw you could also use external vbs- or batch-files triggered by buttons from a qvw, a windows task or execute statement within a load-script.

To look and/or control qv-tasks you could look to the management api - http://community.qlik.com/search.jspa?q=management+api - but I don't know if such functionalities are possible. Another way could be to read the diverse log-files from qemc and server/publisher before another task will be executed.
