Hi There,

I am not sure whether this the correct Forum, but I have question

How do I setup visual cron jobs running from a web page, I want to give users to run the job at their will so they can log on to some web page &then just hit run.

kindly help!

Thanks in Advance

We are in fact testing this right now, to create a web site. But if you just want to list Jobs and Execute it is quite easy to do with in a ASP.NET web site if you use the API.

One other quick option [although not as neat as the API] is to have the webpage create a trigger file (example: job1.trigger) on the file system. Then VisualCron can "monitor" the trigger file and kick of a job based on that.

Thanks

Also I want to run this web page on iis7 with windows 7 installed or Windows 2008 or 2003 if need might be, but primary need is on Windows 7 with IIS7

Thanks in Advance

Hi,

if you do not do any coding this might be advanced as it involves combining code, controls and then publishing/hosting on a web site.

I suggest you wait for us to publish the web version which you can install.

I am not sure I have understood the question. If you already have ASP.NET pages you just have to place them in the web folder.

Really hard to say why. I guess it is something for the coder that created the files from the beginning.

Hello,

I'm wondering if you ever published a way to trigger a job from a webpage, as you mentioned you were working on above?

Thank you,

We have no specific page for that. You could do this if you have a programmer that creates a page that uses the VisualCron API.
