OnPostReload Event driven macro

Hi

We have QlikView server but not Publisher so all document reloads are scheduled in the management console.

I have two basic questions which I haven't been able to fully answer scanning through other posts:

Assuming ALL security related macro options are enabled on the server, in the document properties and the macro window; will a scheduled reload trigger the OnPostReload event to fire some VBScript?

If not, is the another way to trigger the OnPostReload event perhaps using something like this (QlikView Management API - Getting Started and Examples)

Thanks

Oli

The OnPostReload trigger does not work on Qlikview Server. Why do you think you need it?

Re: OnPostReload Event driven macro

The server-tasks of reloading won't never execute a macro. But you could use an execute statement which started a batch-file and which runs these applications per desktop client. The simplest way is per command-line:

\\QVSERVER\d\QlikView\Client\QV.exe /r "\\ QVSERVER \d\Qlikview\Reports\MyApp.qvw"

but also vbs-batches are possible:

We have chosen not to purchase NPrinting so I am left to look for ways to automate a PDF report from a document.

I was playing with PDFCreator 2.3 and the OnPostReload trigger...
