Once a task is running it is impossible to find out directly what the conditions were when it was created or launched. A custom task which needs such information must get this information at the time and store it for future use.


This VB.NET sample EPDM Task Add-In store the logged in EPDM user's name, Windows username and host machine name when the task is created or edited in the Administration tool. The same information is stored separately when the task is launched.


The add-in displays a custom set-up page and launch dialog. While these user interface elements store the information they are not actually necessary; the information can be stored directly by the add-in class just as easily.


The stored user information is displayed in task progress message visible in the task list and in the task's Details dialog.
