System.Timers.Timer vs. System.Threading.Timer

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Kelsang Wangchuk, Jul 31, 2003.

  1. Hi

    Just a quick question...

    When would you use System.Timers.Timer, and when System.Threading.Timer?
    What are the principal differences between them?

    There is a lot of discussion about System.Timers.Timer and its use in
    running background server activities, but not much about
    System.Threading.Timer other than in the reference, which doesn't give
    very much best practice advice.

    Cheers, KW
