This question already has answers here:
public static void Main()
System.Timers.Timer aTimer = new System.Timers.Timer();
aTimer.Elapsed += new ElapsedEventHandler(OnTimedEvent);
aTimer.Interval = 5000;
aTimer.Enabled = true;
Console.WriteLine("Press \'q\' to quit the sample.");
while(Console.Read() != 'q');
// Specify what you want to happen when the Elapsed event is raised.
private static void OnTimedEvent(object source, ElapsedEventArgs e)
Elapsed event will be raised every X amount of milliseconds, specified by the
Interval property on the Timer object. It will call the
Event Handler method you specify. In the example above, it is

In essence, you're selling your team on this new plan, so you need to approach it in the same way that you'd approach a sale to a prospect.
System.Windows.Forms.Timer class you can achieve what you need.
System.Windows.Forms.Timer t = new System.Windows.Forms.Timer();
t.Interval = 15000; // specify interval time as you want
t.Tick += new EventHandler(timer_Tick);
void timer_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
By using stop() method you can stop timer.
Process Implementation: How to Implement a New Process at Work , Other teams struggle to develop the processes themselves - they can't agree on the best way to proceed to improve the business process. 2) Implement the Change in Phases. Change is usually best received when it is implemented in bite sized chunks, unless of course, this is impossible (as in the case of mass redundancy or bankruptcy). Most change can be broken down into phases that can be reviewed along the way.
It's not clear
what type of application you're going to develop (desktop, web, console...)
The general answer, if you're developing
Windows.Forms application, is use of
System.Windows.Forms.Timer class. The benefit of this is that it runs on
UI thread, so it's simple just define it, subscribe to its
Tick event and run your code on every 15 second.
If you do something else then windows forms (it's not clear from the question), you can choose
System.Timers.Timer, but this one runs on other thread, so if you are going to act on some UI elements from the its Elapsed event, you have to manage it with "invoking" access. 8 Steps to Implementing Successful Organizational Change – The , I worked for an organization that was implementing some change and we Using data is the best way to identify and justify areas that need to Improved Persistent Login Cookie Best Practice.

ServiceBase to your class and put the below code in the
Constants.TimeIntervalValue = 1 (hour)..Ideally you should set this value in config file.
StartSendingMails = function name you want to run in the application.
protected override void OnStart(string args)
// It tells in what interval the service will run each time.
Int32 timeInterval = Int32.Parse(Constants.TimeIntervalValue) * 60 * 60 * 1000;
TimerCallback timerDelegate = new TimerCallback(StartSendingMails);
serviceTimer = new Timer(timerDelegate, null, 0, Convert.ToInt32(timeInterval));

Comments Another great question being marked as duplicate without any useful link pointing to the duplicate that explains this well Does the timer execute on a separate thread? @VaughanHilts, short answer, Yes. Long answer, review this SO answer which explains what thread the timer elapses on very well. @kuhaku
OnTimedEvent is the method defined underneath
Main. It's not a framework method.
By default Enabled is
false. Enabled "Gets or sets a value indicating whether the Timer should raise the Elapsed event". What this means is setting it to true starts the timer, and
timer.Enabled = true; is equivalent to calling
System.Timers.Timer can cause memory leaks if you don't dispose of them properly because a running timer can keep the host class "active" an prevent garbage collection on it. A good rule of thumb is if you have any class that uses one of these timers, it should implement
IDisposable and in its
Dispose method, you should explicitly dispose the timer(s). OR in the example above, you could add
aTimer.Dispose() after the
Console.Read (although admittedly, since we would be doing this at the end of
Main, that would make no material difference in this specific example).
If you have one, you can just drag a timer control onto your form from the Toolbox and it does all the above for you. @RobSedgwick Yes, I agree with you. we can add timer control via toolbox. But approach which i shared is via runtime add timer. best answer in this topic I think. -1 OP mentions a console app - there's no reason to bring the Windows Service classes in to this. Especially when, to solve the problem, you're using the same Timer class as the accepted answer. this is shown in a service but applicable to any code. NOt to mention @TarkaDaal. console is not mentioned in this post. only in the possible duplicate.
