Problem using an interval timer

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

The following is the script code in C# of a test web page that I created.  I discovered that "Timer(5000) refers to a time interval of five seconds.  This means that you can specify any interval by indicating how many thousandths of a second to elapse before the timer times out. 


But, my problem now is with how to display something different on the web page after the interval has elapsed.  My code initially displays a zero in a textbox.  I intended to have this change between a one and zero with each time interval.  But, I get an error that says "Response is not available in this context" when I attempt to restart this page again to display a different number with Response.Redirect ("TimerTest.aspx");  What am I doing wrong?





    protected System.Timers.Timer _timer;

    protected void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e)


        _timer = new System.Timers.Timer(5000); // initialize the time control

        _timer.Elapsed += new System.Timers.ElapsedEventHandler(timer_Elapsed); // subscribe to the Elapsed event

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">

Problem in Sharepoint Custom Timer job


I have created one timer job using the steps metioned in this link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc406686.aspx ".
This job is working fine. But i want to modify this timer job. so that i can update Tasks list column after some time interval.

I added my custom logic in the Execute method, but it is not working. In my custom logic i am getting list items of Tasks List and i am updating it.

Does anyone know where is the problem?

Also if you have any other examples of timer job. That would be greatful.

Thanks in advance.

How do I set the Interval for a Timer control which is inside a Update control?


Hi all,

Basically I am trying to execute this code:

         <asp:Timer ID="Timer1" OnTick="Timer1_Tick" runat="server" Enabled="True" Interval=Convert.ToInt32(ViewState["RefreshInterval"] />  


Error 1 Cannot create an object of type 'System.Int32' from its string representation 'Convert.ToInt32(ViewState["RefreshInterval"])' for the 'Interval' property.

Problem With SharePoint Timer job - Ignoring basic c# functions.


Hi there guys..I am having a really annoying problem with my timer job. 

What does my timer job do?

Essentially it looks into a SharePoint list to automatically send emails for people who have booked onto seminars three days and one day before the seminar.  What im having problems with is constructing a CAML query.  I have the value of a sharepoint lookup column (e.g. 3;#3) and i am trying to extract the ID from this field using:

int index = string.indexof(";#");

newstring = string.substring(string,index);

This obviously will work no problems however when i debug my code in the timerjob  it only returns null.  When i type the code into the immediate window during debugging it returns me the right value.


Does anyone know a reason why it would not properly process the standard c# code?  Below for reference is my entire code.


Thank you in advance

Thats why i tried to group the radio buttons in vertical manner. Let i have a requirement like below:

ASP.Net Caching problem ??


I'm having a problem with an asp.net 3.0 application using a gridview to display data.  The problem seems to be that despite a brand new .selectCommand being sent to the sqlDataSource, the gridview starts displaying data from *someone else's* query.  For example, user A is logged in and will be working fine until a few page submissions later when the gridview data starts suddenly showing information that belongs to another user. 

This is my first asp.net application, though I've been working with classic asp and ADO for years so I'm used to sending a SQL string and getting back the results from that string.  Apparently there is a complex caching system which is interferring which I do not at all understand so at this point I just want to stop the server from caching any data whatsoever.  Is this possible?

Any and all help will be much appreciated!!

RaiseEvent problem


I have a parent page ProdView.aspx and two static UserControls, UC1 and UC2. Each UC is in an Ajax accordion pane and the accordion inside an updatepanel.

UC1 has a Gridview footer with couple of textboxes and a link button that fires an Add Row insert procedure. I want to Raise an event that will rebind the UC2 after the row insert in UC1.

First I created the sub delegate and event in UC1:

  • Public Delegate Sub MyRefresh(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As CommandEventArgs)
  • Public Event Refresh_UC1 As MyRefresh

In the same UC1 the Insert procedure that fires the insert and RaiseEvent:

Sub PricingGrid_Insert(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
       Dim myConn As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("LocalSqlServer").ConnectionString)
       Dim myCom As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand("AddRow", myConn)
       myCom.CommandText = "AddRow"
       myCom.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure


Gridview Enable Selection Problem



I have a gridview with Enable selection and Enable Paging equals to TRUE.

I also set the PageSize of my gridview to 4 so that I only displays 4 rows per page.

The problem is when I click the pager in the bottom of my gridview, my gridview is disappearing and no records appear.

Here is code behind of my gridview:

If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
                e.Row.Attributes("style") = "cursor:pointer"

                e.Row.Cells(2).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(3).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(4).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(5).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(6).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))

Problem making Role based Menu in MVC application



 I want to make Rolebase menu in MVC such that if user doesnot have permission for some action then that Action name shouldnot be shown in the Menu.

 I have used the code in the url(http://forums.asp.net/t/1566328.aspx) in my MVC application.My application is a Discussion Forum(in MVC) same functionality as in this forum forums.asp.net

 I have used Controllers for post, thread etc.In each controller there are some actions that are using [Authorize(Roles)] attribute

 but this coding does not count  those Actions in Controllers having Authorize attribute according to the url http://forums.asp.net/t/1566328.aspx 

 In the code, Authorize attribute is applied to Controller class, but my requirement is of Applying Authorize attribute to some actions in controller so that some are available for all users and  some links are available rolewise.Now what is the solution for that?



Problem upgrading to MVC3 - System.Web.Routing



I'm trying to upgrade to .NET 4 and MVC 3.

When trying to compile my project, I get the error:

Error 1 The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?) C:\Users\spencer\Desktop\weblauncher\Common\MVCConfig.cs 4 18 Common

The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

I do have the System.Web.Routing in my references for the project.

BUT - when I try to view System.Web.Routing in the OBJECT BROWSER, nothing is inside!  The System.Web.Routing namespace is not in there - the entire thing is empty!  Could it that the dll is corrupted?  I tried to reinstall the .NET 4 and MVC 3 stuff, but its still empty!

The dll is coming from here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.0\System.Web.Routing.dll
