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 ?

The timer does a fire and forget, it fires your event, but it doesn't wait to see what happens.

A common approach would be to add an eventlog to your service and send errors to the event log when you catch the exception.

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.

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. Regards, M.Sadegh Samiei Well, ASP.Net is not a "service", the Application of the web app will be "terminated" when it's idle for a time (after the last us...

Timer in Web Forms
I am working with an ASP.NET application and was wondering how I would get the page to automatically refresh say every 5 seconds. Here's what I tried, but it stalls/hangs the web browser: 1)I made a timer control on the web form, enabled it, and ran it around 5,000 ms (5 sec). 2)In the VB Code Behind File or the source code that is executed when the timer elapses, I placed the code to do something (I call it refresh, but it's not a typical page refresh). 3) So when I run it, it stalls/hangs before it can do anything… (I know it's probably looping on this timer) What do you recommend? ...

Timers??? (Is it possible to set up a timer in the web app?)
Hello, I was wondering if it is possible to set up a timer that fires off a function at a specific time?I'm using VB.NET, ASP.NET 2.0 and Windows XP on an IIS 5.1 server. What I'd like to do is set up a function that sends an email on a weekly basis (1:00 PM on sundays).The creation of the function is not a problem at all.However, I was wondering if there was a way to set some sort of timer that determines if it is 1:00 and then fire off the function? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, JJDJ You'd be better writing a console application and then...

problem with System.Timers.Timer class and Global.asax

However, if the function is called without the timer, it works. Ideas? Here is the code from the Global.asax file: <%@ Application Language="C#" %><%@ Import Namespace="System.Data" %> <%@ Import Namespace="System.Timers" %> <script RunAt="server"> void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e) { Timer myTimer = new Timer(); myTimer.Interval = 5000;...

[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...
