AJAX :: Countdown Timer Counts Double?
i added a countdown timer to show seconds before pagegets 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:

There is another timer on the page that forces a refresch every 30 seconds:

Add 10 To 1 Countdown Timer
I want to add a countdown timer to my page. What happens is when the user presses the 'Process' button it goes out andperforms various tasks and displays results to a listbox. I want to add a 10 - 1 countdown timer so the user knows its actually moving. Once it gets to 1, I need it to start over from 10 until it is finished.

C# - Make A Countdown Timer?
How do you make a Countdown timer? When the user loads the page, clock starts counting down, it reaches time, it redirects browser to a new page.Found this, it was not too useful.

Creating A Countdown Timer For A Project?
So I'm creating a countdown timer for a project I'm on and I feel its important to get the most accurate time possible. I figure; what is more accurate... and more importantly the most unalterable than server time?

The project requires days/hours/minutes/seconds so if I could grab the exact time the page was requested from the server I could then just through it in a JavaScript variable and work it out from there.

AJAX - Client Timer Synchronous With Server Timer?
I'm searching for an example with an client timer that ticks synchronous with an server timer. Also there must be a button on the client side which can reset the server timer to an default value, and with this it also resets the client timer ofcourse. I tried it myself but it seems that there is some postback delay which makes it impossible for me to make it atleast look like it goes synchronous.

I hope somebody got an example for me, the button part is really important because by pressing that button the delay comes.

AJAX :: JScript Runtime Error 12030 From Ajax Timer When Authorization Expires?
I have an ASP.NET form with several update panels. All works great.I use a timer and have it handle some periodic upates. That works correctly too. However, I appear to get an error when I leave the page open running in the debugger. Specifically the above JScript error 12030.I'm not clear how to find the source but I assume it is because my page has logged out. If I refresh I go back to my login page.So, does this sound like the cause? If so, how to I address this?

Forms Data Controls :: Timer Control Timer Event Forces A Gridview Databind Every 10 Seconds?
VS2010 ( ).I have a masterpage that contains a gridview, giving stats and information on client files sent to us. This gridview is updated by means of a timer control every 10 seconds. In my grid I have an image field, to display either a tick .. if everything is ok or a cross for any problems.When the timer control timer event forces a gridview databind every 10 seconds.When the page first loads, i get the default red Cross in the gridview imagefield, however when the timer loops forces a 'databind' I lose the redCross and it is replaced with the default image control ( as if no url is set ) . Then I get a server 404 error.I am using the OnDataBound event to fire my vb sub. I have commented out evertything just to get a solid starting point but im still getting errors.

AJAX :: ScriptManager And Timer?
I'm having a serious problem with my ASP.NET AJAX application.There is an javascript function in my application needs to be executed after the Timer_Tick event. Here's the code behind:


When I call the javascript function 'UpdateValue' for the first time(at onload page event), it works correctly. But after the Timer_Tick event, it does nothing. This is the HTML code:


What's the problem with the ScriptManager or the Timer_Tick event?

AJAX :: Timer Control Not Firing?
For two days now I try to produce a simple timer. To do this a use Visual Studio 2005, I installed .NET 3.5 (should include AJAX?).

Then I follow the tutorial:

I make new ASP.NET website (can't choose AJAX web site). I put a ScriptManager on this site. Then I add an UpdatePanel and insert a Timer INSIDE the Update Panel. I also add a Label. I double-Click on Timer1 to create the Timer1_Tick and write the code in the timer. I set the timer to 5000ms and try to run the page.

But the Timer1_Tick is never activated. Here the code:



To debug I use Firefox The Webpage has no errors. When I put this project to IIS6 and open it with IE6 there are errors on the page: 'sys undefinded'. But I regard this problem as a different one.

Can Put A Timer In Ajax UpdatePannel In A Masterpage
I made a very simple pannel updating wich will query a database and show a message on masterpage through a label.

Thus, I've put an updatePannel with a label and a timer within (obviously with a scriptManager) in my site's masterpage.

However, when I try to interact with the timer1 object, I receive an error message: "object not set to an instance of an object". I not receive this message when placing the schema in a blank page (without masterpage).

I must to run the query in masterpage because the users need to receive information whatever they are in my site.

How can I correctly place the components to do this work? what I'm doing wrong?

Whenever the timer function is called, it looks like the whole page is rendered again. For example, I have a list of tabs, the selected tab is not selected anymore.

I need to keep the selected tab 'selected' after refresh.

VS 2008 AJAX Timer Keeps Looping / PostBack?
I'm trying to create a 2 second Delay before I initiate a File Download Link.

The problem is, it all works but once the Save Dialog appears, then Timer is supposed to TURN OFF. But then it keeps on calling Page_Load event again, which enables the timer. So it keeps sending/showing the File Save Dialog constantly in a loop.

The thing is it seems to work when I test it on the Development machine, but when uploaded on the server it goes back to a loop.

I have this to try & prevent the loop:

Basically its a label which holds the full URL once its initialised. But empty on form_Load.

If Not lblFileURL.Text = vbNullString Then
Timer1.Enabled = False
Exit Sub
End If

How Do I prevent this. It is a PostBack problem I believe.

AJAX :: Timer OnTick Event Not Being Triggered?
I am trying to modify the Interval and Enabled properties via ViewState but it is not working.
Here is my code:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (!Page.IsPostBack)
//set the default Refresh Interval to 3 seconds and enable Timer to TRUE
ViewState["TimerEnable"] = true;
ViewState["RefreshInterval"] = 3000;
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server" UpdateMode="Conditional">
<asp:Timer ID="Timer1" OnTick="Timer1_Tick" runat="server"
Enabled = <%# Convert.ToBoolean(ViewState["TimerEnable"].ToString()) %>
Interval = <%# Convert.ToInt32(ViewState["RefreshInterval"].ToString()) %> >
If I use Enabled = "true" and Interval = 3000, the code works just fine!

AJAX Timer Tick Fires Page_Init?
I am currently working on an ASP.NET project, where I am using C# as my default language. I have an .aspx page, where I have an AJAX Script Manager and an AJAX timer. When that page first initializes, it does a pretty costly operation (parses a .csv file), which I only need to do once. However, every time the Timer tick takes place, Page_Init is fired again. Is there any way to correct it?

AJAX :: Keep Session Alive By Using Timer Control?
To avoid that users get logged out when they haven't been active for a while, I am using a Timer-control to make a request periodically before the session times out.

My problem is that even though it is not shown (which is good), the entire page gets sent back to the client on each "tick" (25k or so, shown in Fiddler) and even if this is not really a problem, it would make me feel a lot better if less data was returned (since I am really not doing anything anyway). I am using this code in my masterpage which all of my pages use.

Code on the client side:<atlas:ScriptManager
runat="server" [code]....

AJAX :: Simple Timer Is Not Working In Firefox?
When a new item is inserted I want to show a message like "Successful" for 3 seconds and then redirect to main page. For that purpose I used timer control. It works fine in IE but not in firefox. Below is the tick method:

protected void UpdateTimer_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
UpdateTimer.Enabled = false;
lbl_Result.Visible = false;
if (lbl_Result.CssClass == "successMessage")
lbl_Result.CssClass == "failureMessage"

In firefox, it continuously refresh pages, timer never gets disabled. What should I do?
