    Get document name and server indicator

      Hi all,

       

      Does anybody have an idea if it is possible to get the name your qvw document (either with a function of in a vb script) during reload?

      Furthermore I would like to know whether my reload is initiated by the server scheduler or in the foreground by a user. Would that be possible?

       

      Thanks in advance,

      Rob

          Rob,

           

          retrieving the document name should be easy, try something from:

           

          DocumentName( )

          Returns a string containing the name of the current QlikView document, without path but with extension.

           

          DocumentPath( )

          Returns a string containing the full path to the current QlikView document.

           

          DocumentTitle( )

          Returns a string containing the title of the current QlikView document.

           

          I don't know a way to get the reload trigger information from within the script execution, maybe you can use a task  in the server to write a flag file before reoloading or something like that and check for the file in the script.

            I have  faked this test in the past by testing the ComputerName() or OsUser() function. If it's the server name or server userid, I assume it's a server reload.
