Hello support,

I have the following code for .NET API.
I'd like to get more information about the task depending of TaskType and TaskId.
For example, if the task type is "CopyFile", get the values of "Source Folder", "Destination Folder", and "File Mask";
if the task is "Execut" return the value of "Execute", or "PowerShell" return the path of the "Powershell file", etc.

Also, if it possible to get the ifnormation about status of the task (if is Active or not)
How can I return this information?

Best regards,

namespace VisualCronAPIFrame
    internal class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)

                Server s;
                Client c = new Client();
                Connection conn = new Connection();
                conn.ConnectionType = Connection.ConnectionT.Remote;
                conn.Address = "<server>";
                conn.Port = 16444;
                //conn.Token = null;    //Logon Token 
                conn.UserName = "userName";
                conn.PassWord = "securePass";

                Console.WriteLine("Hello " + conn.Address);
                s = c.Connect(conn, true);

                foreach (JobClass j in s.Jobs.GetAll())
                    foreach (TaskClass t in j.Tasks)
                        Console.WriteLine(j.Id + "¬" + j.Group + "¬" + j.Name + "¬" + t.Name + "¬" + t.Id + "¬" + t.TaskType);
            catch (Exception ex)
                Console.WriteLine($"Error: {ex.Message}");

Each task type has a property in the TaskClass class and they are usually named the same (or very similarly) as the task type. So, for the CopyFile task type, the property is called CopyFile. From there you can loop through the "FileCopyItems" as shown below (pseudo-code):

foreach ( TaskCopyFileItemClass item in t.CopyFile.FileCopyItems )
