Posted By:      Posted Date: August 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I am looking to do a countdown timer for time remaining to make a draft pick.  I have seen a number of countdown timers such as: Timer1 Timer2 Timer3In all of these timers, I'm not seeing an easy way to change the Target Date via the code behind.  The timer would need to be reset after a user makes a draft pick.I also would like the timer to be server side as opposed to client side.Any help would be appreciated.

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">
            <asp:Label ID="lblRefresh" runat="server" Text="Volgende Refresh"></asp:Label>: 
            <asp:Label ID="lblRefreshTeller" runat="server" Text=""></asp:Label> sec
            <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger  ControlID="Timer2" />
            <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


Custom Timer Job provisioned at Site Collection level


Is it possible to have a custom timer job provisioned at the site collection level?  In writing my custom spjobdefinition, it looks like you can only create the timer job at the web application level:

    public KBRankingTimerJob(string jobName, SPWebApplication webApplication)
      : base(jobName, webApplication, null, SPJobLockType.ContentDatabase)
      this.Title = jobName;

My feature receiver is defined as a site collection feature, so I can activate it at a site collection level, but my timer job is being provisioned and running once for each content database within the web application (it seems).  I'd like the timer job defined for just one particular site collection (the one the feature receiver is activated at).  Is this possible?  Or am I stuck at the web app level?

If I am stuck at the web app level, how has anyone created a timer job to run against 1 particular list within a site?

How to publish all the draft documents in SharePoint site Collection




I have filtered all the draft documents using the “All Draft Documents” view in our site collection. It gives me a good list of draft documents in site collection.


Unfortunately, I’ am not able to publish all Draft documents at one shot as the “Approve” option is greyed out.


Is there any way to approve all the documents at one time instead of one at a time?


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

Take a tour of your SharePoint site

What is a SharePoint site for?
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
Share information and keep in touch with other people.

Six easy ways to customize your site using Web Parts in SharePoint

Becoming familiar with Web Part customization techniques gives you a range of page-customization choices. For example, you can customize your site's home page so that it displays the specific information that your team needs. You can rearrange the list items on the home page, add lists, and even change the images on the home page. As you become more familiar with Web Part Page customization techniques, you can build interactive Web Part Pages that makes the data in lists more dynamic and useful, and you can add new Web Parts that provide access to external data and Web services.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 1 of 2

In this first part of the two part series, Steven covers the differences between Site and Application pages in SharePoint 2007, why each may be used in various circumstances, and prepares for the construction of a menu located application page. After a brief introduction he examines the concept of Site Pages and Application Pages separately in detail with supported screenshots.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 2 of 2

As the second article in a two part series, Steven examines the attributes and details of a SharePoint 2007 application page, including the construction and feature deployment of the same page based project. Since this is a WSS level objective, as opposed to MOSS, you will not need MOSS to work with the code included in this project. Windows Server 2003, WSS, and Visual Studio 2005 are all that is needed, with no additional add-ons. He provides a detailed analysis of each step involved in the creation and deployment of the project.
