Countdown timer counts double

  

Hi there, i added a countdown timer to show seconds before page gets refreshed. But every tick counts 2 seconds instead of 1 .. so it goes from 30 > 28 > 26 instead of 30 > 29 > 28 ..

On page load I set the label value to 30.

The update panel contains following code for 2 labels and timer:

<asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel3" runat="server">
            <ContentTemplate>
            <asp:Label ID="lblRefresh" runat="server" Text="Volgende Refresh"></asp:Label>: 
            <asp:Label ID="lblRefreshTeller" runat="server" Text=""></asp:Label> sec
            </ContentTemplate>
            <Triggers>
            <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger  ControlID="Timer2" />
            </Triggers>
            </asp:UpdatePanel>
            <asp:Timer ID="Timer2" runat="server" Interval="1000" OnTick="Timer2_Tick"></asp:Timer>


 

 

Code behind:

Protected Sub Timer2_Tick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer2.Tick
        Dim seconds As Integer = Integer.Parse(lblRefreshTeller.Text)
        If seconds > 0 Then
     

how to create a countdown timer using C# and ASP.NET AJAX ?

  

 Hi guys,

Im about to start development on a countdown timer that will display the time left for a particular product.

the format will be like this - 00:00:11.

I have been watching the AJAX video tutorials so im thinking of approaching this by setting an updatePannel with a timer with a tick event every 1000ms. Inside the updatePannel i could have a label that is attached to a C# method that contains the countdown logic



2 questions...


1: is this a good way forward or not.

2: can anyone suggest data time classes/methods that i will find useful so for example an admin can enter a start date and an end date and the timer will show the days, hours, minutes and seconds remaining.

the site im trying to emulate is this ... http://www.telebid.com/ looks like they have AJAX countdown timers too.

thank you for your help

Url rewrite with timer

  

Hi,

I'm trying to rewrite my urls, which kinda work now.

The problem is that in my page i'm using a timer to refresh the data every couple of seconds.
But in Mozilla firebug I can see that the url keeps changing: it's getting bigger after each timer update, like this:

/categorie/1/attractie_parken?id=1&title=attractie_parken
/categorie/1/attractie_parken?id=1&id=1&title=attractie_parken&title=attractie_parken 
/categorie/1/attractie_parken?id=1&id=1&id=1&title=attractie_parken&title=attractie_parken&title=attractie_parken 

etc etc, until it returns a 404 not found.

What can I do to prevent this?

Thanks


Timers: Comparing the Timer Classes in the .NET Framework Class Library

  

Timers often play an important role in both client applications and server-based components (including Windows services). Writing effective timer-driven managed code requires a clear understanding of program flow and the subtleties of the .NET threading model. The .NET Framework Class Library provides three different timer classes: System.Windows.Forms.Timer, System.Timers.Timer, and System.Threading.Timer. Each of these classes has been designed and optimized for use in different situations. This article examines the three timer classes and helps you gain an understanding of how and when each class should be used.

Hello everyone, javascript countdown ?

  

Hello everyone , i am new to the environment of Asp.net, have been using it for two months now, and a problem arised when trying to create  a session timeout,

i wan a countdown time to be displayed on my page i have tried numerous things but no luck yet, tried some scripts i created myself but they do not seems to work

or I am probably not calling them correctly, i have found numerous javascripts to handle this but i still cannot seem to make them work, does anyone know how to call a script function

from asp.net using VB, Like once session timeout reaches 5 minutes which is equivalent to 300,000  i want  my timer to be displayed on screen and start counting down

 

this is a script i found online , not mine and it should work but i cannot seem to make it work, is it something with FormsAuthentication

or RegisterStartup Script i do not know

 

var timeout = '<%= Session.Timeout * 60 * 1000 %>';
           var timer = setInterval(
               function ()
           {
             &nbs

causing 500 server error :(

  

So, I'm just learning ASP.NET with C#, but this code just makes the page display a "500 - server error page"


the webpage is here: hereswhereyourewrong.net/aspnettest.aspx


the code is as follows:


<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" %>
<!-- This program throws up an Error 500: Server Error -->
<!-- I'm not sure why, it compiles just fine. -->
<!-- The last time it was because I had asp:TextBox fields not in a form -->
<!-- but here I just don't know -->

        <title>ASP.NET With C# Test</title>

Timer usage in a class library

  
Hi all,     I have a class library, inside a class of this library i want to use a timer, such that for every one second a slot should be called. The code for this is as follows: </>public void OnDataReceive() { System.Windows.Forms.Timer t1 = new System.Windows.Forms.Timer(); t1.Enabled = true; t1.Interval = 500; t1.Start(); t1.Tick += new EventHandler(t1_Tick); }   public void t1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e) { OnReceive(); }   But it is not reaching to this function itself "t1_Tick", Could some one tell me what is wrong in this??? Thanks for any help

Custom SharePoint Timer Job doesn't run after changing code and restart timer services.

  
Hi We are facing an issue that our custom SharePonit Timer Job doesn't run after a changing the code. First, we developed and deployed a timer job. It worked fine for a few days, then we detected a memory leak and killed the OWSTIMER.EXE. (Maybe we should uninstall the timer job and restart the timer services nicely). We fixed the problem, redeployed the fix as a feature (assemblies are re-GACed ...) to our small SharePoint farm (one web server, one services server), restarted the SharePonit Timer Services. Now we can see the time job in Timer Job Definition in Central Admin but the job never runs (Since it doesn't run, the timer job status page doesn't have any info about it). We tried the same process in a dev environment with SharePoint signle box installation. The timer job just works fine. I did some search on Internet and followed some instruction to clear the cache from "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\SharePoint\Config\1d50d73c-9bf1-4444-85a9-910ed050d1bf" by 1. Remove all the xml2. Clear the cache.ini with "1".3. restart the timer services. It still doesn't fix the problem.Please advise what else I can do. I even rename the timer job and redeploy it. It doesn't help. I checked the even log and SharePoing log and couldn't see anything wrong. Our OS is W2K8.         public override void FeatureActivated(SPFeatureReceiverProperties properties)        { 

Timer in Web Service

  
Hi I have a web service (asmx). I want to add a functionality where in I have to do polling for data on a URL. I added a timer and in the timer elapsed event handler I am checking for the data. Is it a good design? Is there something better than timer for this in ASP.NET? I have a issue with this where in the site / IIS goes in ideal state because of no requests, I have posted it in other forum on how to solve this problem. What I wanted to verify is that, use of timer is a valid thing for my use case, or I should go for some other approach? Will it be too heavy operation for the service to have a timer of 5 minutes interval running in over there, which will be running for the lifetime of this application.  

Change the Timer Service Account

  
I did an install with Sharepoint 2010 RTM and have it working well but when I checked the Monitoring - Review Problems and solutions it states a security concern that the Farm Account should not be used for other services.  At this stage I have to change out the timer service since it is using the farm account.  But I don't see the timer service in the "Security - Manage service Accounts" location.  I created a timer account with no problems but how does one go about changing the timer service to use this account?  I know I can go to services and change it there but I am wondering if there is a need to do this within Sharepoint?  Am I missing a credential management piece that did not show up in the list of services? Any help would be appreciated Workerbee09  By the way, The problem points to a failing service SPTimerService (SPTimerV4) but its started and working cause I can see services being started and history of the service where it was successfull.
