System.Timers.Timer question on how to stop this timer

I have a webpage with two buttons:

"Start timer" and "Stop timer"

When I click the "Start timer" the timer object is started, with the start method


This works great!

When I click the "Stop timer", the timer keeps running.


What goes wrong?

Is oTimer a page-level instance? If so, you will be calling the Stop() method on a different instance.

Maybe you can store the timer instance in the session? (not sure if this works)

First disable the timer then stop it.

Protected Sub btnStopPrototype_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnStopPrototype.Click
oTimer.Enabled =
End Sub

The code above does not work.

When I stop debugging the page, the timer still keeps running.
When I start debug again, the timer automatically stops.

What to do?

System.Timers.Timer issue
Hi- I have created a test program, where on click of a button I want to start three threads, thread1 at interval of 2 mins thread2 at interval of 3 mins and thead3 at interval of 5 mins. When I click the button all these threads are created successfully and all three log the entry in my log file indicating that they are being called. But the next time onwards, I see only the last thread in the function being fired at the specified interval of 5 mins. Wondering what's going on with the first two ones, they were called only once and never again. Protected Sub btnStartTimer_Cl...

System.Timers.Timer does not work properly
Hi; I am going to generate a scheduled task on my ASP.NET web application using System.Timers.Timer class. The timer would start on Application_Start event and do the job for example every 10 minutes, periodically. Everything is OK, but the timer works for 3 times (More or less) and then be killed. I expect such timer must be kept running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please help me if you know something useful.

Handling exceptions in System.Timers.Timer
I have a System.Timers.Timer in my ASP.Net application that executes some code every 15. seconds. The user should be notified if something goes wrong during execution. I have inserted a try-catch-block in my elapsed-method, which catches the exceptions, but how do I throw the exception up ? I have tried with "throw myexception", but the exception is not caught anywhere even though I have placed try-catch-blocks around all method-calls. Where / how do I catch the exception ? TIA Thomas Dolberg The timer does a fire and forget, it fires your event, but it doesn't wait to see w...

[ASK] Problem with System.Timers.Timer in Global.asax
I have a static timer declared in global.asax and add a new handler to execute every certain period of time.  The thing is it runs on visual studio but once I placed it on IIS it does not even run once.  Any clue? IIS won't start your website when you just put it there. It should be started on the first request made on the web. However when no requests are made for a certain period of time the website will be unloaded and your timer won't work again. If you really need a way how to execute something every x hours/minutes then go for windows services. Check these tutorial...

Timer() & Timer event
Am using Powerbuilder 6.5.1 & Oracle 8.0.4 on WINNT. Have a requirement to refresh(reretrieve 8 datawindows in one window, at different intervals. One dw might need to be refreshed in 5 minutes, another in 2 minutes, and still another in 7 minutes, etc. If I place a timer(300) right after the initial retrieve in the Open event of the window for dw_1, and in the Timer event of the window code, dw_1.Retrieve, then, I would expect that in 5 minutes, that dw would be refreshed. But, I have six other windows that need to be refreshed at different times. How would I code for this in t...
