Greetings,
I am building a windows service that gets information when a scheduled task is complete.

I see alot of info on how to GET the status, but unless I am constantly querying the task monitor I won't get what I need.

I was wondering if there is a way to have my service listen for a task to be executed, then do some querying...

For example, i ahve a scheduled task AT123
I don't want to ask every 5 seconds if it was executed,
i want to listen to it to do something when it's executed...

thanks

I immediately thought of the "observer pattern" to solve this. A quick search brought up this posting:

I think something like what this guy did would be what you might be looking for. Basically, set this up so that when the task completes, it calls the event across WCF.
