SiComponents Scheduling Agent is a VCL wrapper that utilizes the powerful Microsoft Task Scheduler API. With its core component, TTaskScheduler, and accompanying classes, this solution seamlessly integrates with RAD Studio, Delphi, or C++Builder applications, enabling you to accomplish the following:
Effortlessly list all tasks on a target computer.
Create new scheduled tasks or remove existing ones.
Set tasks to run at specific times or in response to specific events.
Easily modify task schedules as needed.
Adjust various task settings, such as application name, parameter string, working directory, and more.
Initiate immediate task execution or stop a currently running task.
Incorporate a standard properties dialog for task items, equipped with customizable behavior and appearance options.
With full support for Task Scheduler 2, our solution ensures seamless compatibility without the need to modify your code for new interfaces. When your applications run on Windows Vista or later versions, the Scheduling Agent automatically integrates with the Vista Task Scheduler, freeing you from the burden of porting your code.
Advantages of using our Task Scheduler API integration
One of the primary advantages of utilizing SiComponents Scheduling Agent is its ability to leverage the operating system’s capabilities for task maintenance and launching. This means that you can eliminate the need to implement a timer within your application and keep it resident in order to ensure it runs at scheduled times. By incorporating the Scheduling Agent into your project, you can rely on Windows to launch your program just-in-time, precisely as scheduled, and with the parameters and custom data you have specified.
This streamlined approach simplifies the development process and improves efficiency by offloading task management responsibilities to the operating system. With SiComponents Scheduling Agent, you can focus on your core application logic while taking full advantage of the built-in scheduling capabilities provided by the Windows Task Scheduler API.
