retrieving cfschedule values

I am writing a coldfusion app which needs to allow users to flexibly schedule certain events. Scheduling the task is of no issue, but I want to provide the user with the ability to edit the task once its been set. How do I query the current schedule values by taskname from coldfusion?

Hi richardsimnett,
just to give you head start. The Scheduler configuration file, cf_root\lib\neo-cron.xml contains all scheduled events, as individual entries.
This is the file needs to be parse to get the list of all the schedulled task. I once had to do this but never got it done as I was new to CF and found it is difficult to parse it.
Let us see what other experts suggest.

Well parsing that document is easy. Simply open the file with cffile. Then, use XMLParse (CFMX) to translate it it into a searchable xml document, and then use XMLChildPos to find out the indexes of the elements you are looking for.

Thanks for the info. It was easy it incorporate once I knew where to get the information from.
