I want to have a .net program which can read some information from qvw file such as Reload time information.
Hi, you can use the file functions in the windows to get the file time. Basically if you reload the application the qvw file time also changes accordingly.
Or use qlikview workbench to incorporate the qlikview into .net applications.
I want to choose the 2nd way.
Could you pls tell me which api should I use?
You can use any program that can process xml files to do that. Simply read the xml part of the .qvw document. You could for example load that information using Qlikview itself.
Where can I find the xml files? Is it in the qvw files?
The qvw file contains an xml section. So if you treat the entire qvw file as an xml file you should be able to get the information you're looking for.
I have downloaded a xml editer. And I can see some xml information in the end of the qvw files.
Just search for <LastReloadTimeISO>
