Timer on my ASP.NET page

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hello,i want to execute an Timer in the global.asax when the Application_Starts (it is a function to log the web accesses). I want to use a Timer (System.Threading.Timer) , that checks the entries in the database in a specified period.  TimerCallback timerDelegate = CheckStatus; Timer stateTimer = new Timer(timerDelegate, null, 0, 10000);The "CheckStatus" is the control function in the global.asax. But the thread only runs once, but i think it should run every 10 seconds? Where is the problem?!Sincerely

Page flickering problem UpdatePannel + Timer


Hello everyone,

I am doing my first web project and getting flickering problem.

I created a webUserControl to display photos of  products randomly using timer's tick event in collaboration with UpdatePannel. (It behaves like a SlideShow of products)

It work's fine if I am placing only one control on the page but if I am placing more then one control on same page flickering problem starts due to the refreshing of image in each control.

Code snipt  of the control:

<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="WebUserControl.ascx.cs" Inherits="WebUserControl" %>

<asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel2" runat="server">

Timer control issues...page gets slower and slower....


 Hi all,

I have a Update panel with a Timer control inside the <ContentTemplate> so the JavaScript timing component is re-created only when each postback finishes. I am testing with static data in a small table. I query this table every 3 seconds. It works great for the first 5 min but then it starts to take longer to retrieve the data.... (I can see that with a time stamp I post back in a Label control).

I am not sure why that is happening. I thought that was because I had the Timer control outside the UpdatePanel (as I was using a Trigger) but I moved that inside the UpdatePanel but still get the same results.

What could be happening here?

Thank you


WSS 3.0 Timer Error "6398" are getting generated 1 per minute.Unable to access Search Settings Page

Dear All
We are facing a terrible error which keeps getting generated exactly one per minute and i cant access Search Settings page as well.
I have already tried whats defined in the article below.
After that the errors stopped generating.
But after few hours they started generating again. Iam assuming its because the timer job didn't executed during that period.
We have two servers. One is MOSS and the other is Database Server with SSRS in Sharepoint integrated mode therefoew it is also a web front end server.
I have configured MOSS Server for everything i.e. as Index Server, Executing Search Queries etc. "Is this Ok? or can i use SSRS Web Front End Server as Dedicated server for indexing / All WFE Servers for indexing"
I am using SharePoint Farm administrator as search service account. Same user is used for all other services as well.
I have changed the "Indexed files path" but given full access and files are getting generated in it.

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

I have 2 web pages. First page has a textbox and a button control.

when I enter test and click on the button , system goes to the second page. And in the second page I want to access the Textbox in the first page. When I try to do this I get the following error.

"Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Following is my code :

Dim txt As New TextBox

' Find the server name on the previous page
txt = CType(Page.PreviousPage.FindControl("TextBox2"), TextBox)

Unique content within master page based on conditions met


 Hi all-

I would like to present users with unique content based on certain conditions being met as they land on the home page (default.aspx).  The condition logic will be in the VB code behind Page Load event. The content will go in a content placeholder as specificed from the master page. 

However, the content change wouldn't be something small (ie making a panel or label visible or not) but rather it will be different HTML,  Divs and databound gridview content.  The HTML content will be stored in the database.

Can someone point me in the right direction for best practices on how to accomplish this?


Launch CMD File From ASPX Page


My organization uses a CMD file to install updated files for a major enterprise application. Currently, we send out an email to users with a link to the file and instructions to run it, BUT inevitably users don't update their machines until their in field and try to start the app.


We're now liking the idea of using an ASPX page to prompt the users to run the updates and to capture the fact that the updates have been run. I realize that we can't capture the success or failure of the update. But we'd like to capture the user accessed the page.


Is it possible to embed into the markup for the page a link to the file on the local intranet that the users can click on to run the file?

The user accessing the page would capture that they did just that. We'd deal with wether or not the update was actually installed or if it failed later with them directly.

Need help redirecting users to personalized page


 Hi, first timer here so be gentle.


I've been able to create a cool little website, it's up and running with users logging in and out, I created roles so my administrative team can see sensitive data that's not available to regular and anonymous users.

Now they would like me to create a page specific to each user.  For instance when user A logs in they are redirected to a page that has information that pertains to user A only (like a list of their benefits/ their remaining vacation time). This page needs to be accessible only to user A. 

I've watched a ton of the videos but have yet to see one that covers this topic, any help would be great!!!

Retrieving a variable from a previous page



I'm looking to have a search page where a user will select an item from a listview, then then taken to another page that wil display data based on their original selection.

A user will type in a string and be presented with a list of usernames that are like that string, when they select a user name who's profile they would like to view I would like the page that they're taken to, to be that users profile.

How would I transfer the variable from the search page to the profile page, and when I work on the profile page, how can I access that variable?


Dynamic page customization in WebForms



I am developing an ASP.NET Webforms application for job advertisements. The application is hosted on my own server and enables registrated users to publish job advertisements with the possibility to submit job applications directly from web. The application essentially consists of two parts: job advertisements and job applications sub-apps. 

The job advertisement application uses RESTful approach, implemented as ASP.NET routing and makes no use of different state variables (like viewstate). I provide custom layout of job advertisement webpage for every client using XML serialization of my internal JobOffer class and using XML ASP.NET control with custom XSLT transformation sheet plus CSS to render the custom design. It is all fine and works perfectly.

The second (job applications) part provides users with a custom webform, which is partically dependent upon the original advertisement (regarding the minimal education level, eligible citizenship or work permissions, licences etc.) and can be tweacked using custom CSS. There is, however, no possibility for custom layout of the elements on this page, which provides a multi-tabbed navigation for different parts of job application. Hence the question 1 (see below).

The application is not ready yet, but I intend to keep it hosted on my own server and provide just some ki
