Checking to see if a document requires approval


Please forgive me for asking this question. I'm not an experienced SDK programmer, just a designer and consultant. The forums didn't seem to have an answer for my exact dilemma.

I have a situation where I need to have an action triggered before the document add. However, this action cannot be taken if the document;

1) Requires approval

2) Cannot be added due to rejection

From what I can see, the approval process is actually controlled during the add, and there is no way to determine what approvals (if any) are needed "before add".

Searching the forums, I can see that there is plenty of discussion about approvals and controls. But I need to trigger an action as a specific point in the process (before the add), but not if an approval is required. (FYI, this action will be completed if the document does not require approval, or has been approved.)

Any guidance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
